About Easy Bits

At Easy Bits our goal is to revolutionise online video industry by shifting video processing from back-end servers and browser natively supported elements into JavaScript (and sometimes Action Script) done in real time in the user browser giving video publishers more control over what is supported and what can be done with their videos across all devices.

We work on a new video format we call JSV (JavaScript Video) that we aim to be low computational enough for mobile devices like iPhones to decode and play it on the fly. This, for example, allows to overcome some limitations of a native implementation of html5 video on some hand held devices including iPhones and play videos in-line as opposite to the automatic full screen mode which enables users to interact with the web page during video playback. Another feature, that JSV opens up and that especially sought after in video advertisement industry, is the ability to autostart video on such a device.

Other exciting projects implemented by Easy Bits include thumbnail plugins for popular video players like Flowplayer (html5 and Flash versions) and Videojs player that display thumbnails of the playing video when the user hovers over the time line. The magical thing about it is that you do not need to pre-generate the thumbnails, rather these are generated on the fly from the playing video. This is done by parsing mp4 video container in JavaScript, getting a particular H264 key frame from the video file, decoding and displaying the still image.

At Easy Bits we heavily rely on the range requests feature of the HTTP protocol that allows to download only a specific part of a video file. It is in the heart of our HTTP multi loader - an essential part of many of our products - that supports downloading an object in multiple simultaneous streams from different locations. Here is an example of it in action: video delivered in parallel streams over HTTP.

Using the multi loader that has different features like speed control and re-muxing mp4 to flv container on the fly in Action Script, Easy Bits has successfully implemented a seek to a point functionality for mp4 H264 videos served from a standard http server like Apache to a Flash client.

We work constantly on research in the area of online video exploring possibilities of working with different containers and codecs in JavaScript, here is a full featured H264 decoder in pure JavaScript. See the products page for all of our state of art projects.
