Consistent and reliable output stream
I bought this to test at a satellite downlink location as an inexpensive IPTV headend alternative. Video quality is excellent with no visible artifacts. The output stream has been consistently stable for over a week, and I have not needed to reset it once. It outputs four streams simultaneously but only the first two output 1080p. Video and audio remain in sync. Web/admin interface is easy to use and provides the option to remotely reboot if necessary. Includes a "no signal" color slate pattern when input signal is lost, which is more common on commercial units. Running one 1080p stream at a time, the unit has remained consistently cool to touch. Transcoding at lower quality increases lag but not to unacceptable levels (<2000ms). If your input is 1080i you are limited to 25fps with noticeable motion blur, so use 1080p where you can max out at 60fps. I will update this if any issues arise.

The cheapest and easiest way to stream to Youtube without a computer.
If you’re looking for a cheap and easy way to stream one camera to Youtube this is the device for you. You don’t need an expensive computer and external encoders. This little box does it all. Full disclosure: I was offered monetary incentive for a five star review. But despite the less than stellar documentation I still think it deserves a 5 star rating. I bought this encoder to stream church services to Youtube. The hardest part of the setup is getting the encoder connected to your internet network if your router’s IP address (the IPv4 Default Gateway) isn’t set to 192.168.1.1. If it isn’t you need to temporarily change your computer’s IP address so you can log into the encoder’s control panel. Once logged into the encoder it’s very simple to make the change. The recently updated manual and videos can help guide you through this process on Windows and Mac OS. I used a Canon VIXIA HF R800 camcorder to provide the video. Canon camcorders work well for this task because they can output clean HDMI video (no display indicators). You simply go into the menu of the camcorder and turn off “Output Onscreen Displays” and turn off “Power Saving Mode”. For audio you can use the 3.5mm jack on the encoder if you want to use external audio. Or you can use the audio from the camcorder’s microphone coming through the HDMI cable. ( FYI - the Canon camcorder also has an audio input jack so you can route external audio through it). Just make you set the Audio Input field in the control panel to the correct setting. "HDMI" setting means it's getting the audio from the camcorder. "ANALOG" means it's getting the audio from the 3.5mm jack on the encoder box. The manual does a decent job of going through all the options available through the control panel. settings I used for youtube Bitrate: 6000 Encoder size: 1920x1080 Bitrate control: VBR Audio sample rate: 48000 ( Youtube sounded awful if you use 44100) Audio bitrate 320000 If you need technical help you can get support using email, skype, or whatsapp. Tech support is based in China so it normally takes a day to get a response via email. I needed Tech support because the documentation was lacking. They were helpful but I still needed a technician to log into my computer using TeamViewer to set the DNS configuration in the encoder’s control panel For connecting to Youtube **Update 11-20-2020 Ever since Youtube removed the "Start Stream" button I've experienced an audio/video sync issue when you reuse a stream key. The stream will briefly be in sync and then the audio is ahead of the video. You can use a new stream key each time but that is inconvenient. Currently the only work I've found around is to manually disable/enable the ‘‘RTMP(S) /RTSP PUSH URL’’ field on the encoder box. **End update The DNS configuration. The documentation is incorrect. It says to enter the router gateway address in the fields for DNS1 and DNS2 . That does not apply for all networks. Mine was not configured this way. You need to check your network setting for IPv4 DNS Servers and enter those values. To connect to Youtube you need to enter the “Server URL” and the “Stream name / key” you get from Youtube into the ‘‘RTMP(S) /RTSP PUSH URL’’ field located in the control panel. It would have been much easier if they would have split this into two fields, but they make you combine both pieces of data into one long string. Just don’t forget to add an extra “/” character between the two pieces of data or it won’t work. In the manual there is a sample of what the string should look like. The encoder also allows you to add some basic texts or logos to the screen. The encoder will broadcast a test pattern when it doesn’t detect a video stream which is very helpful. For creating a simple stream this encoder works well with minimal equipment. The documentation is still a work in progress. I would like an explanation of all the options. Once you get the encoder on the network it’s pretty easy to use and configure.

Good product and FREAT support.
I am not technical yet was able to get this encoder to work well for streaming our church services on YouTube. I did have a little trouble getting the settings correct, but I think that had more to due with my lack of knowledge and the stress of the timeline we were working under due to Covid-19. What I can say is that looking back, this encoder was simple to setup (especially if you have any background). I did have to use tech support and they were very helpful. I wish we had this device a long time ago. UPDATE 9/7/2020 - After YouTube made some changes, I needed help with making things work properly. I am EXTREMELY pleased with the support I received. I can tell they value their customers, which makes my day!

Wow, handy little device! Perfect for streaming a cheap DVR, etc. And works sweet on Live youtube!
5 STAR!!! This encoder is so awesome!! I had bought a cheap amazon 8 ch dvr system, and needed to provide the video feed, from it, to a person out of state, but the online features on that dvr are horrible and locked into some china based cloud. But the dvr does have a stable HDMI output. So I bought this awesome encoder, plugged it into the dvr's HDMI and quickly unplugged the china dvr right from the internet. This encoder works so smooth, many options, and is so easy to setup. I do see the minor ip issue where it is in a factory static IP mode so if you don't have any basic networking knowledge or patience to follow the little book they give, then I could see some people having issues if your router lan IP isn't set at 192.168.1.1. It's really not that hard to figure out how to change the encoders network settings. I have it running a live 1080p youtube stream with audio and a 1080p sub stream to my NVR simultaneously and its cool to the touch and the cpu on it barely hits 20 percent.

Terrific technical support
I have purchased three encoders (all H.264 models), two for work and one for personal use. I use them to test video transmission over simulated satellite links in the lab. When I encountered some degraded video quality issue, the tech support responded quickly to help. It turned out the degradation was caused by a faulty switch on my network. Otherwise, all units I purchased produce good quality videos and seem quite reliable.

I had bought a cheap amazon 8 ch dvr system, and needed to provide the video feed, from it, to a person out of state, but the online features on that dvr are horrible and locked into some china based cloud. But the dvr does have a stable HDMI output. So I bought this awesome encoder, plugged it into the dvr's HDMI and quickly unplugged the china dvr right from the internet. This encoder works so smooth, many options, and is so easy to setup. I do see the minor ip issue where it is in a factory static IP mode so if you don't have any basic networking knowledge or patience to follow the little book they give, then I could see some people having issues if your router lan IP isn't set at 192.168.1.1. It's really not that hard to figure out how to change the encoders network settings. I have it running a live 1080p youtube stream with audio and a 1080p sub stream to my NVR simultaneously and its cool to the touch and the cpu on it barely hits 20 percent.

5.0 out of 5 stars

Terrific technical support
I have purchased three encoders (all H.264 models), two for work and one for personal use. I use them to test video transmission over simulated satellite links in the lab. When I encountered some degraded video quality issue, the tech support responded quickly to help. It turned out the degradation was caused by a faulty switch on my network. Otherwise, all units I purchased produce good quality videos and seem quite reliable.
