I have e-commerce site that I sell products, mostly videos. As admin I will add the videos as products. some videos almost 100MB and since it is large files, it won’t upload. I am using linode storage online and in my model i have the videos uploaded directly to linode through heroku which has timeout of 30 seconds. How can i deal with that? I can manually upload the videos to linode but then how can i use them in my site, i will need to have the path in the db as image?
You’ve got a couple different options.
If you want to upload them directly, you can then write a script to inventory them and add each file to a FileField object. (See the examples at Managing files | Django documentation | Django)
Thanks…I am still learning django so would be great if you have a link of working toturials regarding this.
Sorry, I don’t have any resources along those lines.
I will try to start up with this and as i go along i will post any concern or errors on the way…thanks.
