Onymos Media

Managing images and videos in today’s mobile apps is time-consuming and thankless. The Onymos Media Component is the toolkit to make it easy.

Compression done right Onymos Media component offers one of the best compression algorithms in the market for both photos and videos. Quality compromises are kept at the minimum when optimizing file sizes.

Consistency across devices Onymos Media component handles various nuances of different devices – like sub-sampling issues on some older devices where image appears squeezed or have black-bands, orientation issues of landscape photo/video appearing in portrait style or vice-versa. The Onymos Media component also removes the issues when sharing photos and videos across iOS and Android devices – loss of quality, aspect ratio, etc.,

Server side – included. Onymos handles all configuration required at any of the top cloud providers (AWS, Azure or GCP). Flexibility is key – either select zero-touch Onymos Hosting or just provide access and configuration parameters to use your own cloud provider account. Don’t spend time trying to follow pages of documentation only to spend more time on maintenance when the cloud providers change their setup and/or API.

User interface

  • Fixes orientation issues across iOS and Android devices

  • On-device conversion of Photos and Videos to Base-64 format

  • Allow download of Photos and Videos from external locations, including follow-through of url re-direction at the source url

Server-side functionality

Hello, I'm interested in using your media plugin for an Ionic Framework app. However, I've got some significant reservations. The website here doesn't really convey much information about what the plugin does. There are no docs to see if it has the features I want. There aren't any docs to give me an idea of how the integration will work. Next, the $99 per month price tage seems rather extreme. I would not use your hosting services, so literally I'd be paying $99 per month just to use a plugin. I'd be much more interested in buying the plugin one time. Finally, my app has some pretty sensitive information and privacy concerns. I would need to know : 1) Does the plugin transmit any information to your servers? If so, what information exactly? Does it perform any tracking (tracking is strictly forbidden under my circumstances) 2) Where are your servers located? 3) What is the full name of your business entity? 4) What is your full physical contact address? 5) Does the plugin "phone home" to verify license? Your description of the plugin/service on the Ionic Market place is very intriguing. However, unless I can get much more details and a sense of trust about your service, I simply could not use it. FYI: I tried posting this via the support option on your website. However, the form rejected my request as being too long. Thanks, Justin Noel

Hi Justin, Thank you for your interest in the Onymos Media component. Onymos Inc is a Delaware corporation, registered in California. In your case, since you prefer to host it yourself, only the Media metadata information will be sent to our Hosting servers. We store the metadata to provide our lightning fast milli-seconds Search feature. We do not do any tracking and use your metadata only for Search calls that you initiate and return the location that you have saved the actual media at. If your own store is Amazon AWS we even provide you routines to obtain secureURL for the media. We host with one of the largest mega-billion dollar company and meet very high security regulations and standards. We are based in Redwood Shores, CA. Please email us at sales@onymos.com and we can setup a call to discuss more.

UPDATE: After posting my comment and emailing the Onymos sales team, I immediately received a phone call from them. I spent nearly an hour on the phone with them discussing all the questions I had about their company and the Onymos Media plugin. After all this, I feel very comfortable with Onmyos as a company and the capabilities of the plugin. Since I previously modified a Cordova plugin to handle my apps needs, I know how hard this stuff is to get right. I definitely feel that the Onymos plugin will be a higher quality and more stable plugin than the one I developed for my own use. I've gone ahead and ordered the plugin/service and will test it in my app within the next week. Once I have more information, I'll be sure to post an update here.

I finally got around to testing out the Onymos Media plugin very early Saturday morning. I ran into some issues right away and emailed their support team. In no time at all, I had received follow-up emails and phone calls from the Onymos team. They worked with me to resolve the problem that .... turned out to be mine. I had incorrectly pasted the Onymos license key into my file with spaces that my PDF viewer had injected. How embarrassing. # Since then, I've tested the app on a wide variety of devices. With all newer devices running Android KitKat and iOS 8 and above, the plugin works perfectly. With iOS 7, one of my devices is skewing photos after compression - others work just fine. With iOS 6, I'm not currently able to use the plugin as there is some problem with the compression process. # Again, after emailing the Onymos team and explaining the issues, I immediately received a phone call to work through the problems. In total, I've spent about 3.5 hours on the phone with the Onymos CEO this weekend (right before Christmas). Their support is simply amazing. Instead of blaming my edge case of old devices with very old iOS versions, they are actively helping to resolve the issues. Today, they provided me with a release candidate of the plugin that is simply astounding. It takes a 5.5MB photo and compresses it to an astounding 44KB at 756 × 1008. I'm very impressed with their dedication to customer service. ## The most amazing aspect of this plugin is with video compression. It can take a 194MB video from an iPhone 6+ and reduce it down to 1.66MB! There is simply no way I was going to be able to get video working so smoothly on my own without this plugin. #### UPDATE: While writing this review, the Onymos team reached out to me again. They had a hotfix for some of the iOS 6 plugin issues. I can now process videos on iOS 6 but not photos. Again - amazing customer support from this team. ### Overall, I'm very happy with my decision to try out their service and integrate it into my app. My customers are going to love the new video feature, and I didn't have to spend weeks and weeks trying to hash it out on my own. Well worth the cost.

Similar to Justin I had reservations about the plugin initially. I emailed customer support and received a response in minutes. I was still unsure so they called me and they helped me understand exactly what their plugin provides. Thanks to this plugin I've no doubt that I have saved months of my time of building and testing something similar that could scale easily. Recently, I somehow managed to delete the email containing the Onymos License Key and after emailing customer support it was resolved in minutes. In summary, their customer service is suburb and the plugin actually works. What more could you ask for?

We're using this component in our app. So, so much easier than the *terrible* other solutions we've been using until now. Love the fact that you get so much for so little effort. Also Onymos support is *sensational*. We had a minor integration issue (from not reading the docs properly), they were with us every step of the way, even on weekends. So in summary, it all works as expected, and has ended months and months of customer complaints with our previous poor solution.

We were very impressed with the information provided by their website especially their blog page showing real-time compression demos. As a result we wanted to investigate Onymos Media Plugin further by implementing it into a prototype mobile app. We purchased, downloaded the implemented the component into our prototype and I experienced some issues regarding the initialization of the component. I contacted the Onymos Customer Service department and I received a swift response from them. Onymos were able to detect my problem very quickly provide solutions. Gladly, due to their excellent support provided and caring nature from Onymos, we now have a prototype app showing the amazing things it can offer.

Superb support! I posted an issue on their forum at midnight July 4th without expecting a reply until the next day. Yet in just under 45 minutes Matt from the support team emailed me and offered his help. We spent 2 hours on the issue and finally we found out that it was because of my video. Save time guys. Buy this plugin and save time from figuring the issue yourself.
