Memwah is an award-winning video recording web application to record videos in the browser, invite people to contribute, gather video recordings and merge those into fantastic video stories that can be shared or downloaded.
Memwah is an online video recording app that makes recording video stories and group tribute videos easy. It's an Australian female-led startup born during the Melbourne lockdowns between 2020 and 2021. This challenging time happened to be the catalyst to create something meaningful to bring people together and help them pass their memories from older to future generations.
This video recording web app allows users to easily create personalised stories, record videos in the browser, merge selected video recordings into a compiled video story and share that complete video message with a broader audience of colleagues, friends and families.
This video recording website caters to older demographics. Hence, our team of talented UI/UX designers, front-end and back-end developers did a great job making it intuitive, easy to use, fast and performant.
Memwah has become one of the pioneers in Australia who decided to utilise modern browser capabilities and provide its users with a completely new experience.
Below are the Web Vitals metrics for the website showcasing quality user experience. As of today, the Web Vitals metrics focus on three critical aspects of the user experience:
Our team of experienced project managers, UI/UX designers, and full-stack developers enjoyed helping our client build this unique web app, giving people from Australia and worldwide the opportunity to record their videos in the browser and share those special video messages with their loved ones.
The project scope included:
Our team's challenge was to build a fast, performant and user-friendly web application that can concurrently process a large volume of videos in the cloud at a relatively low cost for the startup company.
Since we were dealing with weighty video files and their large volumes, the critical point was to avoid any adverse impact on the app performance and user experience.
As our task was to develop the project’s MVP, it was critical to consider the web app’s scalability and excellent performance inlined with the best modern practices. That’s why our software engineers decided to build a Vue and Laravel project, as this tech stack and server-side rendering allow us to build scalable web apps and speed up the web development process.
Memwah is a great Vue and Laravel 8 web app example that our team is proud to have in our portfolio.
The video processing, video compilation, and video production are performed by the AWS cloud infrastructure and AWS Lambda serverless architecture by using Laravel Vapor as a deployment tool, allowing the fastest and most seamless performance possible.
Interestingly, Memwah is an excellent example of how AWS Lambda serverless infrastructure can process significant volumes of data concurrently without affecting the website performance and user experience.
If you have questions about how we achieved great results with AWS Lambda, whether serverless is a good fit for your project, or if you’re looking for an AWS Lambda development company, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. Our talented AWS engineers would be happy to help you choose the right cost-effective tech stack for your project.
For the programmatic video production, our web developers were looking for a scalable rendering engine, which has to be compatible with any platform, has adequate rendering time and allows us to process multiple videos at the same time. They came across Remotion (React), which perfectly suited Memwah's needs while allowing a straightforward integration.
The tech stack below allowed our team to develop the project’s MVP faster, while significantly reducing the startup company's infrastructure costs and ongoing expenses.
Some of the main features of this online video maker app include:
Our team is thrilled and proud for Memwah, the best online video recording software, to be recognised with a Gold for Digital Innovation at the AusMumpreneur Vic Awards 2021. Yay 🎉
