Join Sahil Malik for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Azure Media Services.
- [Instructor] Let's start by talking a little bit about what you should know before watching this course so you get the most value out of this course. You should be generally interested in streaming media over the internet. So Azure Media Services, well that's where its power shines, is that it allows you to manage media over the internet, so this is a field that should be genuinely interesting to you. You will need an Azure subscription, and a modern browser.
So yes, because we're going to use Media Services, you're going to need an Azure subscription. It could be a paid subscription, or to try things out, you can sign up for a free subscription as well, but you need some sort of Azure subscription and a modern browser. And you'll need a sample high-quality media file. MP4 format works great. But really any standard format that is somewhat in high quality so you can follow along through these instructions. Now, I'll be using a sample video, don't feel obliged to use the same video that I'm using, but you need to have some sort of video to try things out.
