Anyone had luck with Active Storage and Cloud Front?

Dalton Cole asked in General

Hey everyone,

I am working on an on demand video site that would (ideally) involve a user uploading a video via rails active storage direct upload to s3, then that video being served up via cloudfront to other users. With some elemental mediaconvert action happening.

Has anyone has any success with CDN's and Active Storage?


Unfortunately, ActiveStorage isn't currently flexible enough on the processing side of things.

You'll be better off using Shrine if you want to do any transcoding right now (unless you pay a service to do transcoding for you). I've used streamio-ffmpeg with Shrine to convert videos before.


Looks like I was about 3 minutes ahead of you, already started watching that lesson. Thanks!
