I asked this over on superuser, with no luck - I'm hoping serverfault is the more appropriate site.
I'm looking for a solution to take video files from my HD Camera and automate transcoding to a smaller format and then uploading to the cloud (AWS or otherwise).
The ideal workflow would be where I have a NAS or a folder where I could simply drag the raw files from the camera (call it /toEncode ?). The NAS/computer would see new files there and automatically transcode the video to settings I have already picked and save them to a folder (/readyToUpload) that is sync'd with AWS S3 or some other cloud storage system.
I know that freenas and such will do somehting similar for xbox360 and ps3 transcoding - can I tap into this for my solution?
