Hello.

We have many customers running ffmpeg.

If you’d like to scale your application with ffmpeg, however, I’d
highly recommend using Amazon’s excellent SQS+EC2 services for that
part of your application.

The folks are RightScale are absolutely experts at that sort of
integration.

Hi Tom, I am new to adding services to a rails app. upon reading some
overview of the sqs+ec2, does this mean my rails app will upload the
video to an s3 account, and pass it to sqs to do the actual file
conversion of video? that way, my rails app process are not tied up?

thanks
