Encoding which is also known as transcoding, is the process of converting a input file into a digital format so that it is compatible with most types of web players and mobile devices. The most important thing to remember here is that each input file be it video or subtitle file come with its own specifications. And not all computers, smartphones, etc. support the specifications of the video or subtitle file. Therefore, it becomes necessary to encode files in the required format.
