Why Flexbox selects Coconut to outsource video encoding for its social platform?

June 08, 2019 Customers

We are so excited to announce that Coconut teams up with Flexbox. Flexbox is a software development company, with a drive for quality over quantity. While developing Fullstack JS applications most of the time, they are also keen on finding out cloud solutions that can help them spend time on actually coding, rather than having to go through the learning curve of on the client's pocket.


We had the chance to interview Eduard Duluman, Lead Developer at Flexbox.

Eduard, why did you decide to move your video encoding to the Cloud for your project Chatabox?

We are a small team, and none of us had previous experience nor the time to spend learning and integrating our own video encoding solution, hence, we decided to give credit where credit is due, and try a cloud service which does it successfully already at a fraction of a cost.

Why did you choose Coconut?

To be honest, the decisive factor was the way a job is handled within the API, the time it took and the configuration options. Maybe dumb, but we didn't actually check until after fiddling starting to implement it. We were already decided this is the service to go with.

How fast and handy was your integration with Coconut?

I had a few questions at first, decided to give the support a shot via email, (glad I did), my questions were answered way quicker than I expected. All my questions were already explained within the docs. Integration went smoothly due to the way it works, given we only trigger a job creation, and expect a notification when done. That way, no persistent connections or additional checks are needed.
