Create clips from any stream and, in the process, do frame-accurate cutting. Unified Capture works with Live and VOD streams generating clips in HLS, MPEG-DASH, HDS and HSS. It enables monetization of live streaming and new services, such as nPVR, catch-up TV and timeshift TV.

Get started

How Unified Capture works

Unified Capture is a command line tool that captures and downloads the adaptive bitrate presentation (ABR) to disk, from a URL with timestamps. It also provides the option to do frame-accurate cuts in stream, whereby Unified Capture decodes and encodes beginning and ending fragments to allow for sample-accurate timing.
