February 18th 2022: Analytics module for Android app | MP4 public path modified

  • For developers working on Android apps, we have just released an analytics module that will help collect the users’ analytics.

  • .mp4 public paths have been changed, and do not include the quality of the video anymore:  /mp4/{quality}/source.mp4 → /mp4/example.mp4 This change was made to allow for faster access to the .mp4 link. Please note that for the videos that were ingested through the API before we enforced this path change, the new path to the .mp4 /mp4/example.mp4 will be working, along with the old one */mp4/{quality}/example.mp4

February 4th 2022: Clipping feature | Compatibility with VAST | Live stream iOS app sample

  • We have released a new clipping feature. You can now create video clips from video files, videos stored on your account, or video URLs. How does it work? Select the video you would like to clip: in the source param 1, mention either the URL to the video or the videoId if this video is already hosted on your api.video account. Create a video clip from a new or an existing source by specifying the start and the end times of your clip. A new separate video is created, with the clip you requested! Read our technical specs

  • Due to popular demand, we have re-installed the ability to set a video's public parameter (true or false) from dashboard.api.video

  • Our proprietary videojs-analytics plugin is now compatible with the VAST specification, that is used for ads in videos. See on Github: apivideo/api.video-videojs-analytics v1.0.11

  • We have released a new sample live stream iOS app (apivideo/api.video-ios-live-stream on Github)
