Programmable Media Made Easy

With Cloudinary, web and app developers control the media lifecycle in simple steps: upload rich media, including images and videos, to the cloud for storage; transform and optimize them with dynamic URLs; and deliver media over a multi-CDN system. All of it, without ever leaving your application code.

SDKs are available for most popular programming languages, including server-side, client-side, and mobile.


Interactive Demos

One of the many demos available for use, Adaptive Video Streaming takes advantage of Cloudinary’s automatic generation of adaptive bitrate streaming files to automatically adjust the resolution of your video in real time to best match the player dimensions, available bandwidth and CPU capacity of each viewer.
