In an apparatus for transcoding a compressed video, a generator simulates constraints of a network and constraints of a user device. A classifier is coupled to receive an input compressed video and the constraints. The classifier generates content information from features of the input compressed video. A manager produces a plurality of conversions modes dependent the constraints and content information, and a transcoder produces output compressed videos, one for each of the plurality conversion modes.
