Video Generation Processing Time and Factors affecting it
I know the video generation is still in Beta, but I'd love to understand how long you feel videos should take to get generated and what factors affect this in the following 2 scenarios:
- A user uploads a zipped video manifest file via API and then takes the value of the
URLproperty in the response of this upload and replaces the extension with
.mp4to get a preview of the uploaded manifest
- A user does an eager fetch of an existing video/manifest passing some
varsproperty to customise the video (e.g. a different background colour, etc.) and waits for the
eagerwebhook notification to arrive
Maybe you have some documentation on this already?
I presume the duration of the video, width/height, and FPS greatly affect the generation time?
I also presume the generation has to go into some kind of queue before getting processed. If so, are we able to affect the prioritisation of the queue in any way? for example, do customers who pay more get more dedicated resources and priority queues?
Also, are there ways of short-cutting video generation? for example, if we only change the background colour, does that somehow reduce the generation time?
Any help you can offer would be great. I'd love to understand all of this area in much more detail so we can fully utilise Cloudinary.
Sorry, this is quite a big question!
