We had the chance to interview Adam Cellary, the founder of Elly.
Adam, why did you decide to move your video encoding to the Cloud?
We had troubles with subscription plans while working with Amazon Elastic Transcoder. Elly is focused on shooting one second clips, and AWS was charging us for every second as for a minute…
Why did you select Coconut?
Coconut seemed to be the cheapest solution with API, and subscription based on transfer.
How fast and handy was your integration with Coconut?
Super easy, I really appreciate support! We have to convert our video to squares (AWS was able to do that), and the Coconut guys added that option in a second!
Switching from Amazon Transcoder to Coconut was super easy. Thanks to well documented API, the integration took us one evening.
