Third-party Enhancement: Video encoding & Video Thumbnails

Hello,

IP.Board & IP.Gallery has been traditionally not very eager to support videos because of compatibility issues with webhosters (almost none support FFMPEG).

But since Invision seems to become in favor of supporting Third-party Enhancements . I would like to suggest to consider to support the HeyWatch API.

HeyWatch downloads the orginal uploaded video file, converts the file to a HTML5 standardized video format, creates thumbnails and uploads everything to a specified FTP (or any of the multiple methods) target and then pings using a POST HTTP when everything is ready in 60 seconds or less. IP.Board must be able to handle this kind of process IMO.    

They provide a free tier of 1 GB a month. There billing afterwards is very reasonable..
