In this project, we dedicated a year of our time and expertise to develop a web application for a video streaming website using Node.js. As a website development company with a strong background in software development services, our team took on the challenge with enthusiasm and commitment. The project was not only a testament to our technical skills but also a valuable learning experience that pushed our limits.
One of the highlights of this project was developing a solution for users to upload very large files directly to S3. This task was particularly challenging due to the sheer size of the video files. Our innovative approach involved chunking the files, allowing them to go straight from the browser to S3 without our server acting as an intermediary. This solution not only improved the efficiency of the file upload process but also enhanced the user experience by speeding up the upload time.
Another significant achievement was our ability to create custom teasers for each uploaded film on the fly. This feature added a unique touch to the website, making it stand out from competitors.
The site was built on the MEAN stack, a technology we are well-versed in and enjoy working with. While we faced some challenges, such as the lack of good migration and seeding support for Node.js and Express, we were able to overcome them and deliver a product that met our high standards.
Our involvement in this project is ongoing, with a redesign currently in progress. We are excited about the future developments and improvements we will bring to the site. Our team’s diverse skills, ranging from web design to seo services and website maintenance, were all utilized to their fullest potential in this project. We are proud of the work we have done and look forward to continuing our partnership with the client to achieve even greater success.
