As a replacement for things like google drive nextcloud does not handle video files very well. It would seem that if viewing video files via streaming there is no preview encoding or transcoding happening like G drive does. This means that the full resolution file with high bit rate gets beamed through to clients.
I am in need of a way to generate a seperate file (using ffmpeg) upon upload of new video files that would be optimised for online streaming. Before downloading the full fat file.
This is critical for using nextcloud in my project of having an place i can upload my rushes in the field for the remote editors to pick up, review and download. When dealing with multi gigabyte files its just not feasible to first download it before knowing if its indeed the one that was needed.
Can anyone help me with this? I have searched everywhere I can and asked all the platform professionals I know about this.
