Digital Transcoding

Let us crack the code.

SoftLayer's transcoding service enables customers to convert audio or video assets into a wide range of sizes and formats optimized for content delivery. Conserve your own computing resources, and let us do the work.

The service is free to use for all customers, and fully automated and accessible through the customer portal. Like many of the services we offer, we built this tool for our own use, and we love it so much, we’re sharing.

Upload and Unload

We’ve built a free transcoding service to take the burden off of your local resources.


Our service supports the most popular audio and video codecs along with common media containers.

Show Off

After your media is transcoded, use it however you want—no licenses, watermarks, or fine print.
