I am working on a video sharing site and I plan to use the Video module. Amazon S3 is also being used as the file system. The problem is how to override/extend it so the video file skips the intermediate step of uploading to the server and directly upload to S3 using a separate POST request?

If you're using Drupal 7, take a look at these two projects:

Both of these let you store file uploads on S3 instead of the local filesystem.

  • I plan to use the Amazon S3 module for image uploads but I would prefer if video files didn't need to be uploaded to the server first and then uploaded again to Amazon S3. Just a major bandwidth hog to have the server accepting uploads.

  • Cool. I didn't know the S3 module had CDN support. Thanks for the suggestion.
