At Iris Connect we are developing a video sharing platform that is being deployed in over a thousand schools worldwide. As part of this process, the hundreds of gigabytes of videos uploaded from customers every day are a central part of our business. In this talk I will present our approach to video transcoding, and how we are using Haskell to meet our business needs. I will explain how our distributed architecture - inspired to FP desirable properties - allows us to reliably process hundreds of videos every day, dealing with high volume traffic and scaling at need, whilst keeping costs at bay.
