    FFMPEG depoloyement

    We are developing a video-sharing website where users can upload videos and select the thumbnail frame from a video as a poster.

    For supporting the above functionality, we are using FFMPEG framework for processing the video to get a thumbnail and video duration.
    Process is successful when uploading videos of size less than 140 MB. If the video size is more FFMPEG processing is failed due to Gateway Timeout error.

    I checked with hostgator team thinking it is a server issue but after checking the logs they say its nothing wrong from server and it my be an issue in deployment of FFMPEG

    I didn't understand what logs say but posting it for your reference.

    Time taken for uploading a movie - 1 minute
    Time taken for processing a video using FFMPEG for same video - 6 minutes

    Why are we using FFMPEG ?
    1) Capture a thumbnail from a video
    2) Duration of the video

    Server Specifications
    Hosting : Hostgator
    CPU :2.69 GHZ
    RAM: 1824 MB
    Disk space :80GB
    Bandwidth : 1425 GB

    Thank you in advance. Prompt response will really be helpful.

    FFMPEG deployment

    Thank you andrekya for prompt reply.

    It is generating thumbnails for the videos of size less than 140 MB.

    If the size of the video is more then I am facing an issue. FFMPEG processing is failed giving GATEWAY_TIMEOUT error.

    I dont understand exactly what is the dependency between the size of the video and FFMPEG processing.
