Kingsoft Cloud Media Cloud Transcoder (KMCT)


Kingsoft Media Cloud Transcoder (KMCT) provides media transcoding and live transcoding services that support multiple bitrates and resolutions. The online multi-node distributed transcoding cluster provides transcoding services that feature high availability, high reliability, and high efficiency.


  • Elastic transcoding

With a distributed transcoding cluster and mature coding algorithms, KMCT delivers high quality, fast, and elastic transcoding services.

  • Exclusive resource

KMCT ensures that tasks of similar complexity can be executed simultaneously provided that a sufficient quota is available. You can also pin urgent tasks on top for prioritized transcoding.

  • High security and reliability

Technical support is available 24/7, to ensure a high availability of 99.9%.

  • High scalability

KLS provides a rich variety of media processing features, such as slicing, screenshot capture, watermarking, segment capture, and information extraction. You can customize templates as needed.




  • Coding algorithms and resolutions

Supports the H.264 and H.265 coding algorithms and the 2K, 4K, 720p, and 1080p resolutions.

  • Multiple formats

Supports all mainstream encapsulation and encoding formats.

  • Quota mechanism

Allows you to configure the quota parameters based on the number of CPU cores or the number of concurrent streams.

  • Transcoding

Converts files in different media formats to HLS or MP4 files based on different settings such as the resolution, bitrate, and frame rate.

  • Custom templates

Allows you to customize templates by specifying template parameters based on your needs.

  • Screenshot capture

Allows you to capture screenshots of videos stored in Kingsoft Cloud Standard Storage Service (KS3) and generates a single picture based on the specified time point or generates multiple sample screenshots based on sampling points.

  • Watermarking

Allows you to add watermark pictures in .png format that are stored in KS3 to specified locations in videos and supports automatic zooming of the watermark pictures.

  • Segment capture

Allows you to capture a media segment of a desired length by specifying start and end time points.

  • Information extraction

Supports extraction of parameter information of video files stored in KS3.

  • Monitoring mechanisms

Provides a comprehensive task query mechanism and callback-upon-task-completion mechanism.

  • SDK languages

Supports SDKs in PHP, Java, and Python.
