How it works?
When creating a new account or adding a project after you have switched to production, you will be prompted to choose the region from which your videos will be hosted and delivered. You will encounter two primary options:
- United States
- European Union
The primary consideration while selecting the region should be:
- Proximity to the majority of your user base
- Company legal requirements
api.video utilizes a robust CDN service with a vast network of multiple Points of Presence (POPs) worldwide. Upon a user's request, the video is promptly cached at the CDN edge, ensuring expedited delivery. The regional aspect primarily influences the initial hosting location of the video and where it is served to the CDN, streamlining the entire process.
