Project description

api.video's iOS uploads videos to api.video using delegated upload token or API Key.

It allows you to upload videos in two ways:

  • standard upload: to send a whole video file in one go
  • progressive upload: to send a video file by chunks, without needing to know the final size of the video file

Getting started

github "apivideo/api.video-ios-uploader" ~> 1.2.1

Run carthage update


Add pod 'ApiVideoUploader', '1.2.1' in your Podfile

Run pod install

Code sample

Please follow the installation instruction and execute the following Swift code:

import ApiVideoUploader

    // If you rather like to use the sandbox environment:
    // ApiVideoUploader.basePath = Environment.sandbox.rawValue
    // If you rather like to upload with your "YOUR_API_KEY" (upload)
    // ApiVideoUploader.apiKey = "YOUR_API_KEY"

    try VideosAPI.uploadWithUploadToken(token: "MY_VIDEO_TOKEN", file: url) { video, error in
        if let video = video {
            // Manage upload with upload token success here
