150    $url = 'http://url/of/drupal/site/postback/jobs';  //this url must be accessible from the public location.

What is Zencoder?

Web-based encoding software as a service, designed to quickly convert any video into web and mobile compatible formats.

Who is it for?

Web sites and applications that accept uploaded videos, and need to encode them to standard formats.

Why use it?

Building, maintaining, and scaling your own encoding solution is painful and expensive. Just ask our customers.

How to configure Zencoder with the Video Module.

Configuring Video Module - Drupal 6

Now that Video module is installed, it's time to configure it from Admin > Settings > Video (admin/settings/video). Configuration is split into tabs:
General

These options allow you to control how the Video module acts.

Players

Each video extension, has a Drop down choice for the type of player to be used for the video, when selecting SWF Player or FLV Flash Players, a radio list will appear with a choice of Flash players. If you are using Zencoder/Amazon S3 configuration please use Flowplayer *without* Flowplayer enabled in SWF Tools as they share the same folder name and will conflict.

Transcoders

On the transcoder page you have a choice of three built in transcoders, if you would like to use ffmpeg_wrapper module, you can do so from here, otherwise you will be using FFMPEG or Zencoder.

FFMPEG and FFMPEG Wrapper both will use locally installed FFMPEG so, it is REQUIRED (ffmpeg.org/) to have installed the FFMPEG on your server, FFMPEG will only have basic options but for advanced FFMPEG like watermarking etc I prefer the FFMPEG Wrapper. FFMPEG is processor intensive and you will need to have fast server and lot of resources to handle FFMPEG properly, so if you need light weight, fast way to convert videos or if your in a shared hosting you can use Zencoder transcoding API. Zencoder is a award winning video delivery platform. www.zencoder.com/

When a node is created, create and reference to another node

Attached is an example on the use of Rules to automatically create and refer to a node when content of selected types is posted. In the example Story, nodes have references to Page nodes, and when a Story is submitted a Page is automatically created and referenced from the Story (using a standard CCK node reference field).
