Facebook has launched a new Continuous Live Video API that enables developers to broadcast long and persistent streaming video to the world's largest social network. Previously, Facebook Live streams were limited to 90 minutes, but thanks to the new API, third parties can broadcast longer events.
Magnify.net, a web service that allows individuals and companies to build and curate their own video channels and communities, has announced an API to enable developers to pull videos and data from their Magnify.net channels and integrate them into their own applications (details at our Magnify.net API Profile).
Here is an interview with Jeh Daruwala, CEO of Yactraq.com . Their work brings machine learning and natural language processing to the potentially blockbuster world of online videos for targeting of ads based on behaviour. Thus the ads are less spammy, much more relevant, and a win-win for audiences, advertisers and content channels.
