Can i stream videos from MongoDB (in GridFS) onto my webpage?
GridFS is a convention to store files larger than 16 MB
MongoDB, and any interpretation of the contents of the stored files is left
to the application.
The C# driver allows you to read files in GridFS as a stream
(with more examples in the Downloading Files
page), but your application code has to handle other parts of the streaming
and playback mechanism, such as:
- reassembling the video packets at the receiver
- seek capabilities, if needed
You might find more information regarding GridFS in the following pages:
- MongoDB manual: GridFS <
- C# Driver GridFS section
