Why do you charge the transcoding service by minute and not by GB?
The ViMP Transcoding Service is charged by minute. This is the most transparent way and makes charges predictable.
The input files size doesn't necessarily reflect the quality of a video. The input bitrate doesn't actually play a huge factor in how long a video takes to transcode.
HD videos will be charged twice, because the econding of a HD videos requires approximately 8 times the resources of a SD video. That's why each minute of a HD video (1280x720px and bigger) will be charged as 2 minutes.
If you want to transcode HD videos it's important that the input video already has HD quality.
