Hey guys, in extending some features of the chat as well as a bot I’m working on, I’ve run into an issue of how to deal with media assets (images/video/audio)… Do you guys have any thoughts on this?
These components (the chat and bot) will allow users to upload media, and I think it’s a good idea to stay aligned with one solution that fits with our needs and with the Discourse platform. Some options I have considered:
- Amazon S3 or, better Digital Ocean object storage which includes a CDN and is very reasonably priced at $5/month
- Cloudinary provides a media (photos/videos/raw data) upload API, but I find the pricing not so great
- Something that directly plugs into Discourse - is there some type of object storage available through the API? If so, does it scale well with video and audio?
