Streaming Media Monitoring Tool | Media Stream Monitoring Codecs List

On February 5, 2013, Dotcom-Monitor announced ServerView Monitoring™ Media Stream. This media stream monitoring technology continually tests internet streams in Chrome, Flash, and Windows Media stream formats. This new Streaming Media Monitoring Tool has the capability to monitor hundreds of online stream formats and codecs from an external “user experience” perspective. Customized instant alerts may be setup for each streaming media monitoring instance to check performance and availability 24×7.

In addition to this SaaS based service, a Free Instant Media Stream Test is also available for personal or business use.

*Note, the names of encoders and decoders do not always match, so there are several cases where the above table shows encoder-only, or decoder-only entries even though both encoding and decoding are supported. For example, the h263 decoder corresponds to the h263 and h263p encoders.
