1 Video processor "The farmer"
"The farmer" is a video processing tool that has been leading the bussiness for decades, it has a great support for multiple environments and formats working on multiple platforms. Videos are gathered in reels and batches that are processed, improved and encoded into different formats by the tool. All processes are managed from the tool using a desktop environment in a high-performant machine, they don't provide a web application nor APIs for using video processing services.
All the customers are now asking to fetch data from "The farmer" to share it via web-pages or custom reports, but "The farmer" developers are limited by the technology for development and time constraints. What they do have is a replica database (MySQL) where they write all the videos metadata and related information, but such database is read-only and accessible from a single host.
What approach can "The farmer" company provide for their customers to enable data-sharing with the mentioned constraints?
