The participants discussed that the current hosting service, Xano, was not ideal for storing these kinds of files due to size constraints. As an alternative, they discussed using Cloudflare and DigitalOcean Spaces. The latter is a secure, scalable, and cost-effective object storage where data can be stored and accessed as an S3-compatible storage. Although it is not free, DigitalOcean Spaces is affordable and is already being used successfully for project "State Change" videos, making it a good alternative for hosting not only the project “State Change” resources but the problem files in conversation too.
The intended next steps include moving all data currently hosted on Xano to DigitalOcean Space and setting DigitalOcean on a subdomain such as files.device-magic.com. However, they suggested starting simple first to ensure everything works before proceeding to the domain change.
Regarding the CORS issue, they acknowledged it could be related to a redirect from "API.DeviceMagic" to "storage.GoogleAPI", but did not provide a definitive solution. They noted the domain change would not resolve this issue.
