Sending A a video clip to either a web server or MySql Database

Sending A a video clip to either a web server or MySql Database

Sending A a video clip to either a web server or MySql Database

(OP)
I am developing a Xamarin App for just Android and I need as part of that to upload a video clip ( Max 1 Minute ) around 100 MB to either a webserver or direct to a MySql Database. I have the webserver Hosted by GoDaddy ! - I have it working for smaller files (up to about 30 Mb) but anything bigger just errors with no error recorded. I have tried increasing timeouts and that did help as before that it would not accept anything larger than about 20Mb. I am aware that sending to the MySql Database is not ideal and hence I would prefer to just send to the webserver and then move it to a target folder using the PHP that I have on the server. Can anyone suggest as to why it should work for the smaller files, but fail on larger ones ?

RE: Sending A a video clip to either a web server or MySql Database

Are you the only one uploading a 100 MB video file or will this be a service for an unlimited number of individuals to upload an unlimited number of videos?

Check your GoDaddy hosting package for file size limits. You may be able to increase upload size through your php.ini configuration. Basic web hosting packages are not intended for large media files, even though you may have a hosting service marketed to you as "unlimited storage and bandwidth". Video services and audio/podcast hosting is typically handled in a CDN.

It is more than "not ideal". It should never be a consideration. However, it makes a terrific sensational headline in a forum to gain attention. bigsmile

Thanks For the reply.

There will possibly be several concurrent uploaders - maximum of 10 I would say - and probably no more than Once per day

I have the option of sending to a Synology Nas running a web server rather than the godaddy hosted site - but i dont know how to approach that

Thanks
Colin
