How are the minutes calculated?

We’re applying multipliers based on output quality and resources required to create encoded files. Price per minute goes down with your volume. There are also additional per minute charges for add-ons on top of encoding rate. Unused minutes included in subscription are not carried over to the next billing period.

*Base rates starts with $0.01 for the lowest Flip subscription and $0.007 for high volume GigaFlip subscription.
