Transcoding is a pain, even when using an awesome service like Zencoder. I love the idea of being able to put the path to my video in a query parameter and be done with it. Really great work!

One suggestion would be to make the description of how it works a little clearer. For example, "No status handling. Prosessing & error messages will be shown through video" could say, "While the video is being processed, a temporary video file will be streamed - with the text "Processing" written on it." like you said in the comments. Also, will transcoded videos be saved in my S3, or in transcode.io's?


I will make these updates. The transcoded file will be saved in transcode.io 's S3.

( A quick question: If I update code to heroku, will it pull the site down, even for a few minutes? )
