Hi everyone, I need to save short videos from my app, that the users post. Each user has only one 1 min max video. What is the best hosting for this?
lots of cloud providers out there, some already mentioned:
Google cloud storage
Microsoft azure blob storage
all major cloud services come with video players and services for optimal playing and encoding as well. for a longer term solution this is probably a good option. for short term you can be looking at firebase or others.
Checkout firebase's storage project, it's pretty easy to get started with a lot of frameworks.
Youtube, AWS S3 or Cloudinary
youtube? seriously. just embed it wherever you need to show them.
the users upload it inside a bot and I need to show it inside a bot, so not sure youtube is an option
I'd recommend you check out AWS's S3 service
Uploadcare has a really nice flow for recording, uploading and serving video. The downside is the price - their storage costs are 10x AWS S3!
x10 aws ouch
