Reasonably priced cloud video encoding service with API?

Before I create my own solution, anyone know of a cloud based video encoding service that is decently priced?

Most of the stuff I've seen is overpriced or geared more towards enterprise clients.

I have about 1,000+ videos I want to re-encode. Looking for something that can accept the file from a URL, download it, encode it, and either upload (POST) it or provide a download link for me to access it. I want to be able to parallelize it across hundreds of servers / instances temporarily so it doesn't take forever.

Check Amazon AWS they have a lot of apps you can install to a amazon cloud server and pay for your usage by the hour -- maybe they have one useful to you

I'm on Google Cloud for a lot of stuff. I'll check to see if there is an open source project for that. I'm using Backblaze B2 for the content storage.

I'd rather just go with a company that provides it though. I want to focus on delivering core value and not spending all my time doing Ops.

Hi Brandon,

do check this out, it might just be what you are looking for:
RESTful API documentation to convert media files

I haven't used them myself other than to encode the occasional single video that I uploaded via their webpage. I am very happy with that part of their service and if the API part works just as good, then great!

we have quite a few people using PornCMS for video conversions. it outputs 1080p, 720p, 480p and 240p from any source file type. $29/mo is pretty cheap for a video conversion service. you can even embed the vids if you want or just download them for your own purposes.

we can integrate it into any project with some low cost custom coding.

Do you want to encode each video in parallel and then stitch it together or you want to be able to do more than one video at a time? These guys at coconut.co offer one of the lowest prices, but I have not tested their service. If you decide to do it on your own, keep in mind that breaking video in pieces to feed it to multiple transcoders at once does not aways work. Actually, most of the time it doesn't due to keyframes. When you stitch it back together it has parts of it missing or out of sync. So better go with some beefy hardware that does one video at a time but fast, and then buy more instances to domore videos in parallel.

Parallel. Each video at multiple resolutions / bit rates. I'm not looking to cut a single video into 100 pieces and stitch it back together. I want to do 100 different videos at the same time.

That's just a single instance and there's no API access / integration with a job queue. That would take me months to encode what I need plus it looks like I would have to do it manually. Not a viable option.

If that's the extent of your investigation then you aren't a very good developer. I can't remember the last time it took me months to build anything. Maybe if I sleep the first 2 months.
