New features: custom output paths & iOS update

Today we have deployed some very interesting improvements on our platform. Let’s review them all.

Custom output filename paths (store your files in subdirectories!)

Many of you have requested a way to store video inside folders instead of having everything in the root of your bucket. We think we found a nice solution to solve this problem.

When you upload a video there is now a new optional attribute called path_format. It enables you to specify destination and name of a video and it’s encodings.


Status update

It’s time we break the silence !

Since the last post, your host has arrived on the team. I am excited to bring my experience in Video, Linux, and Web development that I gained during the last years at STVS, another amazing company. But for now, let me tell you of the latest updates on the PandaStream platform.

Web interface speedup

After our ruby 1.9 migration, the average page response got divided by two, down to around 350ms. Missing, is the /cloud page that still takes around 1 second to load so that is something we are going to work on next.

Web+Heroku ♥

For the Heroku customers ; you can now access to a specialized version of our interface by logging into Heroku and choosing the Panda Stream Add-on. This can be handy if you want to follow visually the progress of your encoding and get real-time notifications. You can also access it by typing the following command in your console. Enjoy !

$ heroku addons:open pandastream --app your_app_name
