As developers of web apps, you often need to let users upload files to your app - mainly images and videos. You want the upload interface you provide to offer an intuitive user experience, including the ability to drag & drop multiple media files, preview thumbnails of selected images and videos, view upload progress indication and more. Since we now all live in the cloud era, chances are that many of your users also store media files in the cloud rather than only locally on hard drives and mobile devices, so the option to pick files from social networks like Facebook, cloud storage services such as Dropbox, photo services like Google Photos and more is a big advantage.
Images need to be transformed to optimal formats, resized and cropped for various aspect ratios, especially if you have a responsive site. In addition, you may want to apply special effects and overlays. Videos, too, need to be optimized for web delivery, transcoded to support different resolution options and streamed using adaptive streaming, as well as making other modifications. Then, when your media files are stored on the cloud, you’ll want fast delivery via content deliver networks (CDNs) to ensure a great user experience.
