> Every video file or only certain types?
I am only interested in H264 encoded files which I have so far tried around 40 of them and they are all failing. Did not try other encodings though as they are of no interest to me.

>Can you run "md5sum" on the target system?
Lambda does no have md5sum installed, I went with python's hashlib md5 and it was similar for the same file on both the EC2 instance and Lambda so we can omit file corruption as the culprit.
