Video Thumbnailer

A video thumbnail extractor using serverless functions and containers.

Loosely derived from the example at https://serverless.com/blog/serverless-application-for-long-running-process-fargate-lambda/.

When a new video is uploaded, extract a thumbnail

Prerequisites

To run this example, make sure Docker is installed and running.

Running the App

Note: some values in this example will be different from run to run. These values are indicated with ***.

  1. Create a new stack:

    pulumi stack init thumbnailer-testing
    
  2. Configure Pulumi to use an AWS region where Fargate is supported, which is currently only available in us-east-1, us-east-2, us-west-2, and eu-west-1:

    pulumi config set aws:region us-west-2
    
  3. Restore NPM modules via npm install or yarn install.

  4. Preview and deploy the app via pulumi up. The preview will take some time, as it builds a Docker container. A total of 32 resources are created.

    $ pulumi up

  6. Upload a video, embedding the timestamp in the filename:

    $ aws s3 cp ./sample/cat.mp4 s3://$(pulumi stack output bucketName)/cat_00-01.mp4
    upload: sample/cat.mp4 to s3://***/cat_00-01.mp4

  8. Download the key frame:

    $ aws s3 cp s3://$(pulumi stack output bucketName)/cat.jpg .
    download: s3://***/cat.jpg to ./cat.jpg
    

Clean up

To clean up the resources, you will first need to clear the contents of the bucket.

aws s3 rm s3://$(pulumi stack output bucketName) --recursive

Then, run pulumi destroy and answer the confirmation question at the prompt.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
