Mobile Development iOS, Osx, Android
Posted on 2014-04-23
Good day All Experts :)
I am in need of some advise regarding my Mobile app I plan on developing.
First let me give you some background.
The App in discussion will be modelled around 5000 - 6000 (or even more) videos.
The tota video size could be around 800Mb - 1.5Gb+.
Now my question is what would be the best modal to deliver these videos to the mobile device?
Different scenarios I could imagine:
1. Let the user download all the videos to device when installing? What is cons & pros here?
2. Have a video service in the cloud which will get the video on demand only. What services are available at good prices? And also would local caching of the video be possible?
3. Would it possible of I host these videos on my website, same as in #2, and as the user request the video it will then only download the video and cache it locally. Videos sizes (per unit) will not be over 1Mb.
I would love to here all your suggestions.
Obviously I am looking for the most elegant, robust and least labour intensive method.
Also don't forget I am on a lowish budget :)
I thank you all in advance :)
