Fantastic Transcoder: Massively Parallel video conversion in AWS Lambda
Fantastic Transcoder is a serverless video encoder which utilizes massively parallel compute in AWS Lambda to achieve ludicrous conversion speeds. It exists as an orchestrated collection of Lambda tasks which uses DynamoDB, SQS, and S3 for data structure, job tracking, and object storage respectively, essentially turning Lambda into a render farm. Take a deep dive on how Fantastic Transcoder itself works, gotchas of massively parallel programming, failure cases, and using lambda efficiently at scale.
