Integrate FFMPEG/Wowza video tool onto my website
I am finally ready to integrate the video tool :) Do you have some time to do this? Please tell me on Skype and then I'll hire you here.
I have a new website, www.teachabroadnetwork.com. It allows users to register, and users have a video section of their profile. When they Edit their profile, they see a place to manage their videos. There, they can click a button called "Record a video (guided recording)". See the screenshot I attached.
I would like that button to open a new window to the video tool. I will add that link when the video tool is ready, just provide me with the link. Your job is just to set up the video tool on an AWS server.
Question #1: Should the video tool be on the same AWS server as my website?
Advantages: My server already has FFMPEG on it, although it has been configured to handle the video encoding jobs according to the CMS platform my website is built on (SocialEngine). Do you think it would it cause problems to use the same FFMPEG installation to handle both my website encoding jobs and the video tool encoding/merging?
Disadvantages: The video tool might consume too many resources and slow down the website if too many people are recording videos with the video tool at the same time.
Probable Answer #1: Let's install the video tool on a new AWS instance. You will need to install FFMPEG and Wowza on it. Do you agree with this decision?
Question #2: What AWS type and setup should we get for an instance that will host the video recording tool?
Answer #2: I have asked an AWS consultant on Skype, let's wait for his reply.
Question #3: How will the video tool function for users?
Answer #3: I don't need the user to enter any information because the user is just going to download the final video and upload it to their profile on my new website. Therefore, the first page should just allow the user to select a questionnaire that he/she wants to record. The questions within that questionnaire should be displayed below the select box; use AJAX on selection change.
After that, the video tool should work as normal (as ForaSoft has built it), and the user should have a download link at the end.
The server should run a cron job to delete all user-generated videos older than 24 hours.
I would like you to re-create the TTS admin page to manage the questionnaires and questions. I don't need to manage the final recordings, obviously. But I need to be able to add/edit/delete questionnaires and the questions within them. Each question should have a short description, long description, and a video file.
So, Nazir, let's wait for the answer about the AWS setup from the consultant, but otherwise please contact me on Skype if you'd like me to hire you for this job. I want the job to be completed quickly, so please let me know how much time you can dedicate.
Thanks! I want to create a new eLance job for this so that I can leave you another good review at the end.
