Getting Started

MEDIAL makes it easy for you to upload audio and video files in formats such as AVI, MPEG, QuickTime, and WAV, distributing them in streaming formats such H.264/AAC and MP3 in a Flash/HTML5 player.

You can use the library from any browser as well as mobile devices such as Apple iOS and Android phones and tablets.
