Up and Running with Adobe Media Encoder

with Jan Ozer

Video: Welcome

(MUSIC) Hi, my name is Jan Ozer, and I'm an author, a trainer, and a video producer. And for over 15 years, I've been teaching people how to master the art and science of video compression. Ten years ago, if you could produce a DVD, you could satisfy the needs of many if not most of your viewers. Today, almost all producers need to output video for their websites, YouTube, smart phones, and other devices. While Adobe Media Encoder is a great tool for these targets, most producers need help navigating encoding parameters like profile on level, and figuring out optimal encoding primers for their audience, site, and content. This workshop starts with an introduction to streaming, defining terms like bandwidth, resolution and streaming and the like, to help you get fully up to speed with any of these concepts that might be new to you. The section on the best practice is of streaming producers then helps you learn from the pros by detailing the encoding practices of major corporate and broadcast sites.

In this in-depth workshop, compression and encoding master Jan Ozer demystifies the art of producing compressed video with the Adobe Media Encoder. Jan starts by providing a workflow overview and teaching you the key encoding concepts all video producers need to know to compress their video properly. Then he shows you how to work with a wide variety of formats: H.264 for Flash, Silverlight, HTML5, and QuickTime; VP6 and Windows Media; MPEG-2 for DVD; and MPEG-2/H.264 for Blu-ray. The tutorial finishes off by looking at adaptive streaming, a technology that improves the quality of service you can deliver to viewers at every point on the power/bandwidth spectrum. Both Apple's HTTP Live Streaming and Adobe's Dynamic Streaming are covered.

Topics include:
  • Overview of the encoding workflow
  • Setting preferences
  • Creating, importing, and working with custom presets

Complete with bandwidth and other file format details. We'll also dive into a comprehensive review of H.264, BP6 and Windows Media encoding parameters, as well as producing for devices like the iPad and Droid. After working through these tutorials, you'll be familiar with all Adobe Media Encoder configuration options for all relevant players, including Flash, Silverlight, and Windows Media. Let's face it. You can't be an effective video producer today without knowing how to preprare your video for the web. This course will show you how to use Adobe, Media and Coder effectively and more generally it will demystify video encoding so you can deliver an optimized video experience for your viewers.
