The Flowplayer Android SDK interacts with the API to access video streaming solutions. Supported features include DASH, HLS, SmoothStreaming, MP4, WebM, and MP3 formats, fullscreen playback and configurable device orientation management, callbacks for monitoring a wide range of player events, interactive Media Ads (IMA), VAST and VMAP advertisement, and customizable user interface.
Cloud APIs are all about the endpoints: some services follow the current trend of providing a RESTful end point, others use older protocols such as RPC or SOAP, some use newer - push focused - endpoints like WebSockets or HTTP Streaming, others may offer a number of different endpoints to meet different requirements and some just use what seems to be best for a specific job which might mean not strictly following protocol rules. But is providing an endpoint to a service alone good enough? Should a developer really have to care about how a service is built or accessed when they can use a client library?
The Wevideo API opens up this video-editing-in-the-cloud service. Technical information on the API is available directly from the company. Wevideo provides a solid set of editing and storyboard tools including a timeline and a library of soundtracks. Beyond that, the cloud gives movie editors something else: the ability to collaborate with ease. Because you can create copies of footage, different people can edit the same video as they please.
