Video transcoding

Video transcoding refers to the process of converting a compressed and encoded video stream into another video stream to adapt to different network bandwidths, terminal processing capabilities, and user needs. Transcoding is essentially a decoding and then encoding process. Streams before and after transcoding may use the same or different video encoding standards.
