API Client

We've introduced workspaces to our customer dashboard

Anyone can now share their api.video dashboard with a colleague or client. It's a great way to involve stakeholders in your projects. Workspaces enable the primary account owner to invite unlimited team members to their dashboard securely, so they can help with video integration or add video content.

Analytics Module for Android apps

For developers working on Android apps, we have just released an analytics module that will help collect the users’ analytics.

Modification in .mp4 public path

.mp4 public paths have been changed, and do not include the quality of the video anymore: /mp4/{quality}/source.mp4/mp4/source.mp4 This change was made to allow for faster access to the .mp4 link.

Please note that for the videos that were ingested through the API before we enforced this path change, the new path to the .mp4 /mp4/source.mp4 will be working, along with the old one */mp4/{quality}/source.mp4

Clipping feature

We have released a new clipping feature. You can now create video clips from video files, videos stored on your account, or video URLs.

How does it work?

Select the video you would like to clip: in the source param 1, mention either the URL to the video or the videoId if this video is already hosted on your api.video account. Create a video clip from a new or an existing source by specifying the start and the end times of your clip. A new separate video is created, with the clip you requested!
