Which droplet is better for video mp4 files?
I have created a massive video course platform that stores the videos as MP4 and serves them by ranges (I use NGINX as reverse proxy).
The videos: When uploading the videos they are always converted to mp4, they are encoded in h264 and their size is limited so they are all optimized. NGINX also caches the videos to optimize speed (filling method using mp4 module).
My problem: sometimes when opening a video it takes a long time to play the video, despite the fact that 2 MB ranges are downloaded. Playback becomes slow and skipped despite very little traffic.
The droplet I am using is:
4GB - 2 vCPUs - 4TB - 80GB ($ 20 / mo)
SO: Ubuntu 18
Any suggestions on which droplet to use to optimize content delivery?
