I’m trying to find an alternative to our current video on demand/service archive/etc. service for our Roku Channel and Apple TV App.
We intend on moving video on demand to YouTube for our website and mobile apps, but still want to have something that can deliver video to Roku and Apple TV. My understanding is we need HLS offered via CDN and I’m wondering what the best way to accomplish that would be.
We currently use highwinds through a package deal that included storage, but the package it was bundled with is being canceled and the price is going a little higher than we’d like.
We do around 4TB of traffic, but I’m not sure how much data we actually have… I think we may actually have 4 to 5TB of video and audio right now.
It feels like I could probably just get an S3 account and store the data there for a few hundred a month then use a CDN for a few hundred more per month and be just fine, but I wasn’t sure if there was something more ideal. I really like the idea of a service that could do the transcoding so we can throw video files up there and when people access them the hls files are generated on the fly, rather than us having to generate the hls and store thousands of files per video… thoughts?
