Let’s say your source file is 10 mins, and quality is 1080p and you wanted to create 3 output profiles like 720, 480p and 360p. In this use case total transcoding minutes will be 30 mins for 3 profiles:
720p: 10 mins
480p: 10 mins
360p: 10 mins
For example, sake if the per-minute cost is $0.005/min then your total charges for this transcoding job will be $0.25!
