What is it?
Panda-Putter, quite simply, allows you to upload videos to a PandaStream encoding cloud via a bash script, with minimal dependencies.
I was having issues dealing with RubyGems not loading properly from cron jobs, so I decided to look for another option, plus I wanted to have a bit of a problem to exercise my brain a little bit.
What does it need?
- OpenSSL (needed for HMAC SHA256 and Base64 encoding)
- cURL (it does the uploady thing)
- Perl URI CPAN module (needed for URL Escaping)
How do I use it?
Get an account with PandaStream
Grab your Cloud ID, your Access Key and your Secret Key and add them to the panda-put bash script (lines 10, 13 and 14)
Use the following command to upload your video goodness:
(Optional) Capture the output, which will be the panda video ID, and do stuff with it.
This is a very basic script which does one thing and doesn't account for any error cases. Eventually I will return non-zero codes if the cURL call fails etc, but until then, enjoy and use at your own risk :)
Something Doesn't Work!
That is entirely possibly - send me a message on Github and I might be able to help, or fork the project and try and fix it yourself (and likely also improve my code) - I welcome pull requests.
