My company needs to be able to offer to our students the ability to upload multiple high file size (1 to 2 Gig) video files. We think it would be best to convert them to flv's AS THEY UPLOAD to save storage space. High quality of video is not necessary. It would be nice if the uploaded video could then be streamed (by our trainers), instead of having to be re-downloaded to a local PC
We have a team of techs who can modify open source solutions, or adapt commercial solutions but we can't find anything out there that:
-can handle file upload size up to 2 G
-can convert / compress as the vid uploads
-can offer scalable storage at reasonable rates.
We are based in Australia, so AU servers would be an advantage.
Upload speed of the large input file is a criteria for us, as if it takes several hours, thats obviously not that practical!
Freelancer would need to have a good working knowledge of video upload and conversion issues, and be really familiar with the latest platforms and solutions in the marketplace.
Deliverable would be a report outlining solutions that meet the above criteria. But the report would need to have had each proposed solution PROPERLY RESEARCHED, not just a scraped list from Google!
