S3VideoStreamer.Demo.mp4

Playing videos through S3 buckets (Wasabi, AWS, etc.) through client-side VideoJS player without incurring ingress/egree traffic on EC2 Instance.

Why?

Found plex as a solution, you've to install it, do local syncing using SSH tunnel, login with an account, create a local sync between the S3 bucket and the server hosting the solution. Plex also first downloads those files at server-side and then passes those to the user, this incurs both ingress and egress traffic cost. Other than that, S3 costs for downloading as well.

This script simply just establishes a connection with the bucket, lists objects and then plays the video at client-side (rather than downloading on server-side first). So no *additional ingress/egress cost for the application on EC2 server! Just the S3 bucket as desired!

Tested On (OS & Python version)

  • Ubuntu 20.04 LTS -- Python 3.8.5
  • Windows 10 -- Python 3.9.5
  • WSL [Ubuntu 20.04] -- Python 3.8.5

Downloading & Installation

Fill in the config.json file before running the script!

git clone https://github.com/Anon-Exploiter/S3VideoStreamer/ && \
  cd S3VideoStreamer/ && \
  pip3 install -r requirements.txt && \
  python3 app.py runserver

Todos

  • Add authentication for public hosting
  • Add public usage with --no-sign-method equivalent so public buckets can be used
  • Make the application dynamic so bucket name and other information can be filled directly without config

Note

Make sure you know what service you're using and what it costs! AWS S3 costs a lot for transfer!!! Go with Wasabi or some other S3 service.
