    Hi Nirav,

    This is not possible out of the box. And I don't know of any Umbraco packages that offer this functionality.

    IMHO this also something a content management should not support.

    Maybe you can subscribe to a service like https://cloudinary.com/ or https://ziggeo.com/

    We used the last one with in a website and are very happy about it.

    Hi Dave

    Yes, this is a console application, you can run it on the server right after a video is uploaded. You can put .exe file in /bin folder and run the process right after video is uploaded

    Hi Alex,

    We used ziggeo, because we need to record video's on the website from the users webcam. And we have chosen to store all video's used on the ziggeo platform. It does the transcoding for you when you upload a video. It also allows to stream different quality to mobile users.

    We build a custom section using their sdk to let editors do everything from the Umbraco backend.
