Encoding for iDevices

Just produced this seminar for Streaming Media Europe in London. Here’s a description:

This session starts by detailing the playback specs for all iDevices, old and new. Then, it shares the strategies used by prominent iTunes publishers to serve the complete range of installed iDevices. Next, the session switches to cellular wireless delivery, with a technical description of Apple’s HTTP Live Streaming, including recommendations for the number of streams and Apple’s encoding parameters. It concludes with a review of encoding options for HTTP Live Streaming and techniques for serving multiple target platforms such as Flash and iDevices with one set of encoded H.264 files.
