We are a Swiss Army knife for your files

Transloadit is a service for companies with developers. We handle their file uploads and media processing. This means that they can save on development time and the heavy machinery that is required to handle big volumes in an automated way.

We pioneered with this concept in 2009 and have made our customers happy ever since. We are still actively improving our service in 2019, as well as our open source projects uppy.io and tus.io, which are changing how the world does file uploading.

Overlay videos with dynamic artwork, generated with HTML & JS

Transloadit customer HEROFI uses our service to dynamically generate artwork and then 'burn' it into videos, in order to create unique and customized content for their customers.

HEROFI's use case illustrates how powerful our building blocks can be when you add a little bit of creativity. HEROFI was gracious enough to let us showcase a sample of how they're watermarking user uploads for display in Buffalo Wild Wings restaurants.

While HEROFI performs a lot more magic in the form of slowdowns and concatenation, this demo will focus exclusively on the HTML-generated watermark case.

It all starts with an S3-hosted HTML file:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
  <head>
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
  </head>

  <body style="background: transparent">
    <script>
      var logo_url   = new URLSearchParams(window.location.search).get('logo_url');
      var store_name = new URLSearchParams(window.location.search).get('store_name');
      var label      = new URLSearchParams(window.location.search).get('label');

      var watermarking = [
        {
          'type': 'image',
          'src' : logo_url,
          'css' : {
            'position'  : 'absolute',
            'left'      : '60px',
            'bottom'    : '90px',
            'max-width' : '200px',
            'max-height': '100px'
          }
        },
        {
          'type'   : 'storetext',
          'metatag': 'x-amz-meta-storename',
          'text'   : store_name,
          'css'    : {
            'position'  : 'absolute',
            'left'      : '60px',
            'bottom'    : '60px',
            'background': '#ffd200',
            'padding'   : '4px',
            'color'     : '#fff',
            'width'     : '200px',
            'text-align': 'center',
          }
        },
        {
          'type'   : 'cliptext',
          'metatag': 'x-amz-meta-cliptitle',
          'text'   : label,
          'css'    : {
            'position'  : 'absolute',
            'right'     : '0',
            'bottom'    : '60px',
            'background': 'rgba(0,0,0,.1)',
            'padding'   : '20px',
            'color'     : '#fff',
            'font-size' : '48px',
          }
        }
      ];

      function getStyle(obj) {
        var style = '';
        for (var key in obj) {
          style += key + ':' + obj[key] + ';';
        }
        return style;
      }

      if (watermarking && watermarking.length) {
        for (var i = 0; i < watermarking.length; i++) {
          switch (watermarking[i].type) {
            case 'image':
              var div       = document.createElement('div');
              div.innerHTML = '<img style="' + getStyle(watermarking[i].css) + '" src="' + watermarking[i].src + '" />';
              document.getElementsByTagName('body')[0].appendChild(div);
              break;
            case 'storetext':
              var div       = document.createElement('div');
              div.innerText = watermarking[i].text;
              div.style     = getStyle(watermarking[i].css);
              document.getElementsByTagName('body')[0].appendChild(div);
              break;
            case 'cliptext':
              var div       = document.createElement('div');
              div.innerText = watermarking[i].text;
              div.style     = getStyle(watermarking[i].css);
              document.getElementsByTagName('body')[0].appendChild(div);
              break;
          }
        }
      }
    </script>
  </body>
</html>

As you can see, the file takes query parameters and uses JavaScript to dynamically create labels along those parameters. In addition, it takes the URL-encoded location of a logo.

Transloadit sources an input video (in this demo you can upload one, but we can just as easily import from a cloud location), we then take a PNG screenshot of the HTML file with labels and a logo passed in through the query parameters, before using that screenshot to create a video overlay.

These Assembly Instructions make it easy to generate custom videos for specific restaurants, days, or events — just by changing the logo_url, store_name, and label query parameters.

Let's take a look at all the Steps involved.

So many ways to integrate

Transloadit is a service for companies with developers. As a developer, there are many ways you can put us to good use.
  • Bulk imports

    Add one of our import Robots to acquire and transcode massive media libraries.
  • Handling uploads

    We are the experts at reliably handling uploads. We wrote the protocol for it.
  • Front-end integration

    We integrate with web browsers via our next-gen file uploader Uppy and SDKs for Android and iOS.
  • Back-end integration

    Send us batch jobs in any server language using one of our SDKs or directly interfacing with our REST API.
  • Pingbacks

    Configure a notify_url to let your server receive transcoding results JSON in the transloadit POST field.
