Direct S3 Support

Currently I do most of my streaming via sftp, to a machine that has S3 mounted with s3fs. It’s clunky and slow (buffers a LOT). I’d love to be able to just access S3 directly.

Given all the available cloud options, I’m a little surprised there isn’t S3 already. You apparently already use S3 for cloud backups (according to my brief search for dupes of this suggestion) so at least some support is already in the codebase. Plus, it’s a pretty common API that would allow people to use a number of storage options outside of Amazon themselves.


Yes! S3 streaming would be fantastic. Generic S3 ideally so that it supports Amazon, B2, Wasabi, etc.

I second this as well. Currently, dropbox has a 3TB personal limit, and Google drive jump drastically in price once you go over 2TB. S3 would allow you to have more than 2-3TB without a significant jump in price that traditional cloud storage providers offer.

I know it’s an old topic, but I really want to voice my support for this feature, since it would make my setup much simpler, especially if it would come with proper Wasabi support.

Welcome to the forum!

Don’t forget to like the first post in the thread to show your support. :wink:

Oops… I’m sorry, I didn’t know it works this way. I’ve already rectified my mistake :slight_smile:

Hi, do you already support idrive. com?

The current list of providers include: Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, Box, pCloud, Yandex.Disk, and MEGA.

S3-compatible services like IDrive are not supported at this time, but it’s something we may look into for the future.

Does the Infusion PRO version connect to Wasabi (S3)? Currently I can stream via direct URL but it would be much easier to connect to the cloud source

I don’t think it supports that kind of storage, but I would also really like to see it added.

I would love to see support for S3 compatible storage.

I too would like to see support added for S3 backends

Yes, I’m going to be using Wasabi for some other stuff and would love to throw video up there and stream directly to Infuse!
