AWS Elemental MediaConvert can now ingest video files from HTTP and HTTPS sources. With the ability to transcode content from sources other than Amazon S3, you are no longer required to build logic to copy files into S3 in order to use MediaConvert. This feature is available at no additional charge. To learn, more please read the documentation.

Using AWS Elemental MediaConvert, video providers with any size content library can easily and reliably transcode on-demand content for broadcast and multiscreen delivery. MediaConvert functions independently or as part of AWS Elemental Media Services, a family of services that form the foundation of cloud-based workflows and offer the capabilities needed to transport, transcode, package, and deliver video.
