Hi there @abdulbaseer657,

What I could suggest is, rather than storing the videos directly on the Droplet itself, you could use an Object storage with CDN enabled. Otherwise, if you store the videos directly on the Droplet itself, you might run into a situation where you run out of disk space.

Regarding the size of the Droplet itself, it really depends on your application and the resources that it needs. What I usually recommend in such cases is to run some stress tests in order to see how much resources, like CPU and RAM, exactly your application would need and then make a decision on which would be the best plan for you:
