Video Encoding in the Cloud with AWS ElasticTranscoder: The Presentation

Back in July I wrote a bit about my implementation of AWS ElasticTranscoder within DetroitHockey.Net’s multimedia archives.  I knew as I was writing it that I wanted to take it a step further and I got the chance to do that last week, presenting an expanded version of my post as a lecture at TechSmith’s internal developer conference, TSCDevCon.

It was my first lecture-style presentation and it shows.  Lots of “ums” and “uhs” but I think it flows okay.  I did make the mistake of not checking my audio levels so it needs to be cranked up a bit.  I also didn’t realize we had some awesome mics recording the audience so I repeated questions for the benefit of the recording when I didn’t have to.  Apparently the screenshot slides weren’t as legible as I’d have liked.

Overall, it was a good learning experience for me.  I hope the attendees also learned something.  I look forward to getting the opportunity to try it again sometime.
