The Solution

We created a web platform for selling videos that does all the job. What the guys from Clever Stock do is upload all of the RAW files via FTP, all of signed releases in JPEG and a CSV file extracted from their software that contains: filename, title, keywords and person's name. The PHP script converts the video files in 4 resolutions using the FFmpeg framework compressing the size for nearly lossless quality. Then a thumbnail video is created adding with Clever Stock watermark. After video conversion is done each file is compressed in a ZIP file including the proper release. All data from video as: size, FPS and ratio is extracted and added to the DB. Files are ready for sale and are uploaded the unlimited S3 Amazon servers as a background process. Finally email notification for successful job is sent to the client. As a result we achieved a web platform with thousand files ready for sale using zero effort from client's side.
