Tokbox, the online video communications platform, is on a roll. Earlier this year, we had reported how Tokbox decided to change it strategy from delivering an application to focusing on a pure API platform play. This paid rich dividends in an increase in number of partners taking to their platform and they moved later on enabling Video chat on Android and iOS devices. Tokbox has now gone one step further by implanting itself as a solid choice for enabling Video Chat on your site by targeting the millions of WordPress sites with a Wordpress plugin built on the TokBox OpenTok API.
Wacku has launched a non-profit open API in the broadcast media space: OpenMedia.io. The OpenMedia.io platform collects video and other media from human and machine-readable sources. In turn, the API updates users when need additions or changes have been made to the library. Currently most of its sources include YouTube videos, Podcasts, Web-TV series, and some movies. The OpenMedia.io team has invited the major broadcasters and studios to participate in its open project to no avail.
