mov-converter

This is a very simple proof of concept web service for converting short *.mov files to *.mp4 files.

Requirements

  • docker
  • a heroku account to deploy

Getting Started

If you have make installed:

Build

make build

Run

make run

If you don't have make, see the command line invocations you need to run to complete these steps in the Makefile

Deploying

For this very simple project, I chose to deploy to heroku. It's pretty much zero configuration, though it does require your Dockerfile to be written in a certain way. It also requires the heroku-cli. Once you have that though, it's very simple to deploy.

If you have an authenicated heroku account and have already run heroku apps:create <your application name goes here>:

heroku container:push <your application name goes here>,

Thats it!
