Opinion: video repository

Would appreciate any comments on how best to integrate large video storage with XWiki for my group. Before, we’ve uploaded video recordings of group presentations (Skype recordings) to an S3 bucket. These can be hundreds of MB, so using the database storage sounds like a Bad Idea.

Has anyone implemented a similar sort of thing? I could use filesystem attachment storage, or perhaps just leave them in S3 and create a page or app to link to them. Is there a cooler way?

Appreciate any comments. Thanks.

Note that the filesystem store is now the default in the dev branch (future 10.3) so I would indeed recommend using it instead of the database one.

I guess the cooler way would be to implement a S3 based attachment storage :slight_smile:
