Overview

Media Acceleration enhances the performance of media delivered over the Internet to create more engaging experiences for online audiences. The Media Acceleration Software Development Kits (MASDKs) extend these innovative technologies from our Edge all the way to your customer’s end-user device. This is achieved by integrating our software with the underlying media player used by the browser application.

The Media Acceleration program will evolve over time to include multiple technologies, on multiple platforms, as part of its modular architecture. In the first phase, we introduced both quality and throughput improvements by taking advantage of UDP technology. In this second phase we are introducing efficient delivery to WebRTC-enabled browsers with media players based on the Media Source Extensions (MSE) APIs, and performing high quality video streaming over HLS.

This documentation guides you through the steps required to enable Media Acceleration for various media players.
