Live streaming has grown so much that over 47% of the global viewers are streaming more live streams every year. Why is live streaming important? It is hard to argue about the advantages of live streaming in a digital space where customers are looking for an authentic brand experience and real-time connections. Moreover, the significance of live streaming has doubled in the current times of the COVID-19 pandemic where businesses are shutting down and looking for alternative solutions to drive their business forward.

Let’s understand the live streaming API

What Are Live Streaming API?

“Live Streaming API” (Application Programming Interface) allows applications to invisibly talk to each other in real-time. Live Streaming Video API is a broader term. It describes a group of similar APIs that work for videos. Like any API, they too provide access to a specialized service that can be built into an application

Live Video Streaming API

A video streaming API provides 3 core service:

  • Storage: The API provider will usually store a copy of the master videos.
  • Encoding: Follows Video compression, to make it viewable over the web.
  • Delivery: Video delivery is optimized through CDNs making users get the best experience.

It essentially takes care of the backend technical decisions letting you focus on building the product. These APIs do not require the use of a specific player or CMS, giving you full control over both.

  • Live Streaming can be used with the following use-cases
  • Education Industry
  • Gaming
  • Events
  • Retail Industry
  • Social Media Platfoms
  • Telehealth Sector

The uploading, or the broadcasting, starts once, & then the video plays for as long as the activity or event goes on.

A live video streamed can be viewed even after the live broadcast ends. However, a message on the video thumbnail will inform the users that the live stream has ended, and they’re only watching a recap or recorded version of the event or activity that was live-streamed.

For a live stream to run properly & smoothly, it is important to ensure that the video which is being recorded, live, goes to the streaming server in the right video format to get smoothly processed.

The streaming server then sends the video file across to the online video player, which streams the video in the right format. Now the users can finally watch the live stream.

The entire process of live video streaming can be divided into three parts.

Recording & encoding: The entire video is recorded/ filmed live & the video bytes are simultaneously fed to an encoder in the right format & quality to be uploaded on the streaming server.

Streaming Server: The streaming server uploads the live video on the platform which can be accessed by millions of people around the world, at the same time when the activity/event is taking place live.

Online video player: The online video player is connected to the video server & plays the live video to viewers worldwide, on their mobiles, desktops, or tablets.

A video streaming API contains a single, simple, highly abstracted API and is used for the ingest and playback of your content. The intricate complexities of how your content is encoded, stored, and delivered are all taken care of by the services underlying API, allowing you to focus on building your product.

When a video is streamed live on YouTube, the viewers get the opportunity to watch it live as well as a recorded streamed version for later.

Video player / Client-side

Client-side video APIs operate at both high and low levels of abstraction depending on the control level you need over the playback experience.

The chat widget gives the ability for brands and content owners to make the audience to interact with each other for better engagement and proactivity during streaming. The Firekast Live chat comes with moderator tools that will allow administrators to delete or ban abusive content and users from the channel or groups. Firekast’s live chat comes with a private chat widget to create public or private chat rooms to make effective collaboration and discussions.
 

Conclusion
And this is all the real time chat providers in the market to implement chat functionality in any live streaming or broadcasting platforms. More than delivering entertaining live content, creating a massive engagement and buzz for every live event is the smarter way to turn every audience into a protiable subscriber. Picking up the right software provider is more important than just handling the integration process.

Publishing to the App Store

Before publishing to the App Store make sure to add the ARVideoKit License to your app licences list.

  1. Build ARVideoKit for release

Open ARVideoKit.xcodeproj

Select ARVideoKitRelease scheme with Generic iOS Device

Build the project (cmd + B)

Right click on Products/ARVideoKit.framework -> Show in finder

Copy and replace ARVideoKit.framework in your project

Additionally, if you are using the binary build from Framework Build or the latest release, you MUST strip out the simulator architectures from the framework before pushing an application to the App Store.

To do so, follow those steps:

  1. Install Carthage

Download Carthage.pkg from here

Or install with Homebrew using this command brew install carthage

  1. Go to your project target's Build Phase
