I want to build a feature into a product I have that allows customers in the field to upload videos from their cellphones to my server, which are then transcoded into Ogg Theora and MP4 and made available in web browsers.

I am not sure what systems are out there, or where to look  to find a "complete package".

I am not keen on hiring a "service company" to do this, but might be convinced if their security is good.

Thanks!

I do not think there exists any "complete" package for your requirement. (unless someone points us to that)

However this looks like achievable in parts.

1. You should have a valid way of connecting from field to your server i.e valid domain name of your server.

2. once video received, should be converted to the desired format in batch or auto mode. Most professional video converters can do it. (should be integrated with your web server)

3. some video encoder engine for flash to play in the web site. Flash works best than mp4 or any other format when viewing over the internet comes in question.

Once you know the process, softwares are easy to search in google. Choose as per the budget. For a linux setup, the softwares will come free and you have to script it just.


Best,

1. yes this is obvious
2. yes how?
3. No. I specifically need Ogg Theora and MP4, not Flash as requested. This must run on all mobile and desktop platforms and browsers.

I need a full and specific solution, a purchasable product name to install on my servers, or subscription package provider which will run on my servers.

 Several other sites are also there. These guys let their video encoding engine integrate to your existing web servers for converting and sharing/playing videos over the web.

You might need to call up their tech support and clear up your queries about deployment.

You might also need PHP/MYSQL in your web server end, which I am not considering

Best,

I have seen one service called: Filemobile.com

This seems to do mostly what I want, and if anyone knows of similar services, or software, the points are yours.
