Amazon Web Services (AWS): S3, EC2, SQS, RDS, DynamoDB, IAM, CloudFormation, Route 53, VPC and more reddit.com
I mean, in general, it's a bit pricy. But the cost of encoding audio is absurd. Here's a comparison:
We'll say someone uploads 15,000 audio tracks, and each one is 5 minutes long.
15,000 x 5 mins = 75,000 mins x $0.003 = $225
Compare that to a Lambda function using ffmpeg:
15,000 x 15 secs (worst-case scenario for Lambda duration) = 225,000 secs x (2048/1024MB) = 450,000 GB-s x $0.0000166667 = $7.50
So, a $217.50 savings by using Lambda vs MediaConvert. Yikes! The only reason I can imagine someone …!-->
