OTP doesn't have built in support for multimedia. The company I work for does have an advanced editing suite written in Erlang + C.  If you are willing to write NIF code reusing most existing C code is a matter of doing a few bindings.

Now they simply have a RESTful API to deal with and can develop on ahead using fixtures or a basic backend in any quick tool that can build REST apps like Sinatra or Node.js returning stock responses. Plus, you then are already ready to develop other interfaces besides a web frontend for you backend with no changes.
