The new LiteAV SDK is powered by Tencent’s proprietary playback engine, which has been improved continuously over the years and has been tested by numerous services. The new SDK increases performance by 30-50% over built-in players, is easy to integrate, and has been optimized for business customers, with excellent bandwidth control to help you boost your revenue. It also features Top Speed Codec transcoding, content protection, end-to-end data monitoring, and scenario-specific low-code integration, making it the first of its kind in the industry and a leading-edge, enterprise-grade video playback solution.
Tencent Video’s playback engine
For the first time, Tencent offers the playback capabilities of its Tencent Video product to the public, giving the LiteAV SDK new advantages such as superior audio/video experience, accurate seeking, offline playback, as well as smoother, more stable playback and better compatibility.
The new SDK adds support for formats including QUIC, AV1, and H.266, meeting needs in more scenarios and helping you reduce costs by cutting bandwidth usage by 20-55% from the existing H.264 and H.265 formats.
New content protection solution
In addition to proprietary protocol encryption, local encryption, and hotlink protection, the new SDK introduces a DRM encryption scheme based on well-established DRM technologies, offering full protection for your content.
Video quality enhancement
The new SDK adds support for HDR10 video playback. It also offers Top Speed Codec transcoding solutions to help you reduce bandwidth usage without compromising playback experience.
Scenario-specific low-code integration
We offer code for application scenarios such as short videos and video feeds, as well as capabilities including thumbnail generation, dynamic watermarking, and playlist playback to help you quickly build your apps at low costs.
