Uploading of video filesAnswered
I currently have a Rails application that users can upload images as well as videos where the app is storing these files on S3 and is processing images and using Zencoder for the videos. This app is hosted on Heroku and has one worker dyno to handle the image processing. i am working on a prototype to use Cloudinary for this. I would like to offload the image processing so that I eliminate a worker plus it is really fast uploading directly to Cloudinary and the processing done there.
So far I have the images uploading and am very pleased with the performance. What I want to be able to do is to upload videos to be stored on Cloudinary and processed with Zencoder. I know that Cloudinary does not provide video encoding. My problem I am having is that when I upload a video it seems to disappear in the management console. I have uploaded from my application and from the management console but once it is finished, I don't see it. I have the started account right now, is this a limitation of that type of account?
Non-image files, including video files, can be uploaded to all of our accounts, free and paid, and are handled as 'raw' files ( http://cloudinary.com/blog/using_cloudinary_to_manage_all_your_website_s_assets_in_the_cloud).
Though you can upload all file types from both the API and the management console, currently the web interface of the management console's media library shows images only.
You can use our admin API call in order to list your uploaded 'raw' files:
Cloudinary::Api.resources(:resource_type => :raw)
You can also get a single resource details based on a given public ID, for example:
Cloudinary::Api.resource('rwkaliebnufp3bxyrvyo.wmv',:resource_type => :raw)
For delivery, the returned public ID of the upload API call should be used.
Here's a URL example , notice the '.../raw/upload...' :
