api.video is the video infrastructure for product builders. Lightning fast video APIs for integrating, scaling, and managing on-demand & low latency live streaming features in your app.

Project description

This module is made for broadcasting RTMP live stream from smartphone camera.

Getting started

Installation

In your pubspec.yaml file, add the following:

dependencies:
  apivideo_live_stream: ^1.1.3

In your dart file, import the package:

import 'package:apivideo_live_stream/apivideo_live_stream.dart';

Permissions

To be able to broadcast, you must:

  1. On Android: ask for internet, camera and microphone permissions:

<manifest>
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.RECORD_AUDIO" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.CAMERA" />
</manifest>

The library will require android.permission.CAMERA and android.permission.RECORD_AUDIO at runtime.

  1. On iOS: update the Info.plist with a usage description for camera and microphone

<key>NSCameraUsageDescription</key><string>Your own description of the purpose</string>

<key>NSMicrophoneUsageDescription</key><string>Your own description of the purpose</string>

Code sample

  1. Creates a live stream controller

final ApiVideoLiveStreamController _controller = ApiVideoLiveStreamController(
    initialAudioConfig: AudioConfig(), initialVideoConfig: VideoConfig.withDefaultBitrate());
  1. Initializes the live stream controller
await _controller.initialize();
  1. Adds a CameraPreview widget as a child of your view

Ensure that _controller.create() has been finished before creating the CameraPreview widget.

child: ApiVideoCameraPreview(controller: _controller),
  1. Starts a live stream
_controller.startStreaming("YOUR_STREAM_KEY");
  1. Stops streaming and preview
_controller.stop();

Manage application lifecycle

On the application side, you must manage application lifecycle:

@override
void didChangeAppLifecycleState(AppLifecycleState state) {
  if (state == AppLifecycleState.inactive) {
    _controller.stop();
  } else if (state == AppLifecycleState.resumed) {
    _controller.startPreview();
  }
}
