Apple recently announced a new API that allows third party websites and apps to embed Live Photos. Live Photos has been around since 2015; however, embedding Live Photos outside of a Mac or iOS environment has been somewhat challenging to date. The Live Photos API should alleviate that difficulty.
YouTube have announced that that they are making a notable change to their YouTube API. The API, which returns results in both XML and JSON, is getting an upgrade on the JSON side, and the change is different enough that they are giving the format a new name JSON-C.
Video is an increasingly important component for websites and apps, as consumer demand for and consumption of video content is growing. Companies still pre-transcoding video or working with in-house transcoding systems may want to consider cloud-based API solutions such as Cloudinary.
