    I am working on a project that is somewhat similar to the way Netflix works (as a streaming service), and have the following requirements:

    • Database that stores video files
    • Create group that can access the video
    • Ability for Owner to invite/add users to the group(s)
    • Video can be played/paused, and resumed if users close and come back to watch later.
    • Users in the Group can watch the video at the same time
    • Email/push notifications whenever owner of a group uploads a new video ready for watching
    Now I have last developed in Android some 4 years ago, but in terms of cross platform compatibility, e.g. iOS and Android, what is the best approach for this project?

    Should I use AWS or Azure to host the database? Would SQL database work well with storing videos? Is MP4 the best format considering its wide compatibility? From my android experience, I developed an App in Android studio, but is there a better alternative to develop an app that can work for both iOS and Android at once?
