“We needed a platform that quickly converts RTMP streams to HLS that we could use on the fly. Instant recordings with adaptive streaming quality is very important to us. api.video is one of the few companies in the video space that creates simultaneous mp4 and HLS recordings. This allows us to offer content for immediate download once everything has been recorded.”
