Zapier

Connect api.video with your favorite apps thanks to Zapier

Zapier is a no code solution that allows fast integration with thousands of applications. Each automation created at Zapier is called a "Zap" and has a trigger (to kick off the automation) and an action (the thing that is done after the trigger).

For example: A trigger might be "When a new encoding has been created at api.video" and the action would be to "share the playback link on Twitter." So now, whenever a new encoding is created, the zap will fire and automatically tweet the link to your followers.

The api.video integration features both triggers and actions, which we will outline here:

Triggers

A Zapier Trigger is an event that kicks off an automation process. There are 5 Triggers in the api.video integration:

Non instant:

  • New Video Created: A new videoId has been created.
  • New Live Stream Created: A new LiveStreamId has been created.

Instant

  • Live stream started: The live stream broadcast has started.
  • Live stream ended: The live stream broadcast has ended.
  • Video encoding completed: Triggers when a specified encoding (based on size of the video) has been encoded and is ready to play.
  • All live events: Three triggers in one endpoint: broadcast started, stopped and when the specified recording is ready for playback.

Actions

  • Create Video: Will create a video at api.video when triggered.

The following pages will describe each of the Zapier triggers and actions in greater detail.
