Is it possible to grab a specific chunk of a video stored in DO Spaces?

So I have NGINX deployed and I want it to grab the video file and serve it, but obviously if someone just wants a specific chunk of the video, moving the whole video over and then cutting it in NGINX would be a lot. I mean: I could do that, but I’m not sure how fast spaces would be doing that. Any ideas? or is cutting at NGINX just the best.

Hey @motionfans,

I don’t think that this is supported natively by Spaces as of the time being.

The best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.

Hope that helps!
