1minute video hosting for thousands of users?

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:

    • AWS S3

    • 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

    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!
