Does provide real-time transcoding?

Indeed it does! By default RTMP live streams are available over RTMP and HLS. If you need a multi-bitrate output just contact support and they’ll set it up for you for an additional charge.

Will 8 POPs be enough for my site/app?

Linode’s 8 datacenters provide sufficient global coverage for most use cases. These include gaming, video-on-demand, live streaming, and e-commerce. Feel free to create a trial account and test Nodeboost free for 15 days.

Do I have to sign a long term contract?

Nope. You’ll be charged monthly and you can cancel anytime. If you cancel, you’ll only be charged for the current billing period. You won’t be charged again after that.

Can I cancel my account at anytime?

Yes. Once you cancel your account, you’ll be responsible for charges incurred for that billing period, but you won’t be charged again.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept all major credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover. We also accept PayPal, Amazon Payments, and Alipay. All payments are processed by Fastspring, the authorised payment processor.
