It is Sunday and yet it still felt like it is a normal weekday because I have been so focus on completing my work. My current task is related to uploading video contents to the platform. Yesterday I wrote about linking the server to the do the domain and since it is the weekend, the registration company that we coordinated with do not work on weekend so I could not link the domain to the server yet. Sadly I do not have access to the domain so the only thing to do is to wait until tomorrow for that to be updated.
Anyways, since I have to put up videos, the contents that we have varies from 2 minutes to 10 minutes. Everything is actually fine except for the video size. It is around 50 to 200 megabytes. We have around 600 videos and that will take up estimately around 60GB of storage. Since right now, I am self hosting the videos, this will be an issue.
Luckily today I found a site that compresses video online and it compresses 90% of the file size without losing the quality of the video. It’s simply amazing and I have no idea how did they do that. It does not seems like they are open sourced. Not to question about it, I am glad that they made it. The site is called videsmaller.com, if ever it would be useful for any of you.
