I’m deciding to use MongoDB as my storage for video streaming using Wowza
Streaming Engine. Wowza can receive video files from a HTTP server and
stream them. I need to know is there a powerful http interface for gridfs
to be used in enterprise scale applications?
MongoDB does not currently provide an HTTP interface for GridFS, so you’ll
have to look into community or third party solutions if that’s a desirable
approach. I’m not sure what you mean by Enterprise scale, but MongoDB has
been used in variety of large deployments (see: MongoDB at Scale
If you are streaming video files I would be very conscious of bandwidth
usage. Bandwidth-hungry streaming media content is typically hosted
somewhere separate from your application servers (i.e. on CDN or hosted
service). Streaming content from a database is not the most efficient or
fast approach, but suitability will depend on your requirements.
I found “ node-gridfs-http-frontend-master” by google search but i’m not
sure if it is good.
You’ll have to do your own evaluation for this package, but perhaps others
in the community will have experience to share. It looks like this module
hasn’t been updated in a few years and has a very low number of downloads
