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. 

Using AWS Elemental MediaConvert, video providers with any size content library can easily and reliably transcode on-demand content for broadcast and multiscreen delivery. You can build workflows to generate high-quality video outputs in minutes instead of weeks or months. MediaConvert is easy to use with a pay-as-you-go pricing model, offering a high degree of availability, reliability, and scalability.
