I built a video sharing platform for a popular french podcast I contribute to.
Initially I used S3 and linked directly to it, bad idea.
Then I used a
pull CDNto better optimize my bandwidth, but s3 is still solicited a lot.
Now I'm compressing video better (from 1.7gb to 400mb each) which should help but I still think it's going to cost a lot monthly and it's voluntary so I'd like the cost to be as minimal as possible.
So now I'm thinking about using a
push CDN and upload my content there but I'm worried about the storage costs. Would that be a good idea?
Every morning when I put the new show up, it gets about 2000 requests which cost about 100$ of S3 data transfer so far. I'm looking for the cheapest way to host video and share it (bandwidth).
Any suggestions would be very welcome, thanks.
