Can users upload files to Spaces directly from their browsers?

Hi!

I’m considering using DO Spaces for our company’s web. In this web, users upload very large video files (arond 20GB), so I’d prefer that they upload those files directly to the DO Spaces server, without using my server as intermediate.

Amazon S3 allosw this: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/es_es/AmazonS3/latest/API/sigv4-UsingHTTPPOST.html

With the help of a JavaScript uploader like FineUploader it’s a painless process: https://fineuploader.com/demos.html#amazon-demo

Can I do the exact same thing with DO Spaces? Has anyone tried this?

Thanks!

Hey friend,

Great question! There is technically no barrier that would prevent this. That’s a fairly good use case, an application uses Spaces transparently as it’s back-end service. That’s kind of in line with our vision of how you might use it successfully.

Thanks!
I’ll give it a try.
