Famipix selects Coconut to outsource video encoding for its sharing platform

September 09, 2014 Customers

We are so excited to announce that Coconut partners with Famipix. Famipix, founded in 2005, lets families and schools in more than 100 countries share their photos and videos privately and securely. Famipix is an easy-to-use and secure alternative to sharing photos on conventional social networks, because users have fine-grained control over who can access their albums, and no content is indexed or shared to external sites.


We had the chance to interview Nathan Skwortsow, founder of Famipix.

Nathan, why did you decide to move your video encoding to the Cloud?

Instead of running our own FFMPEG instances, we'd rather leave this to experts who focus on what they do best, so we can focus on what we do best.

Why did you choose Coconut?

I liked the clear API, the available Ruby library and transparent pricing framework.

How fast and handy was your integration with Coconut?

The Coconut integration was a pleasure to integrate!

My development team was able to get up and running quickly with the transparant and well constructed Coconut API, which allowed us to quickly choose optimal encoding settings for our end users. I am impressed by the speed and quality at which videos are encoded.
