Record, Upload, Share.
In just a few clicks

Your end users don't understand how videos and live streams are encoded, hosted, and streamed on different devices.

All they want on your video messaging website or app is a quick and easy way to record themselves and share it with others. api.video provides just that.

Record, upload and share

Private videos between the sender and receiver

You decide who can access the videos and live streams — whether its an individual or a group of people. This prevents anyone else from watching the video.

Private videos

Cost effective, at scale

As you keep adding new users to your video messaging app, your total videos might increase exponentially in a matter of days. With most vendors, that means your costs increase as you scale.

Not with us. There's no platform fee and you pay for what you use. With volume discounts, your costs decrease when the volume increases.

“We love that when a user uploads a video, the video playback is almost instantaneous. In the crypto space, people have very low patience for uploading and sharing content, and api.video just works well. We also use the private video feature to serve gated content - it’s as private as you can get and allows us to securely serve content to the end user.”
