False start: showing the video playback url before the video is ready
When your video has been uploaded to api.video, we return the player URL. Our video encoding is VERY fast, but generally, it does take a bit of time for the video to actually be ready for playback. In this demo, we'll use our Webhooks to push a message when the encoding is ready.. Once your server receives the notification, you can display the player URL with confidence that the video will be ready to play.

Live stream webhooks: We'll tell you when the stream starts
