How to Convert a Video to WEBM in Node.JS

Online video has become a major resource for clients to find information and have their questions answered about both organizations and their processes. With the rise of this new medium, the WEBM file format has gained notoriety as it is compatible with most web browsers and is the sole format used for YouTube videos. The transition toward utilizing this new platform, however, can be a bit tricky without the proper tools.

The first step is to install our client as shown below:

You can also add this snippet to your package.json, instead:

"dependencies": {

Now, you can call the function, VideoConvertToWebm:

var CloudmersiveVideoApiClient = require('cloudmersive-video-api-client');
