ffwd is an online community that lets members discover new videos selected based on their interests and favorite shows, and share videos with friends. The "ffwd" button lets you "fast-forward" to the next video in the sequence if you've seen enough of the current video -- kind of like "channel" surfing, buy on the Net. ffwd have now released an API to let developers build ffwd applications on any web-enabled video device. Specifically, ffwd's new API will enable developers to:
You are shopping online and want to send a gift. But do you really want to have the retailer send one of those typed out cards with it? Sure, it includes your personal message but it just makes the recipient miss your handwriting and the ink. Sociagram offers online retailers an interesting alternative: the ability for their customers to add a video message. In many cases, that might be a a leap ahead from a pen and ink note--especially in my handwriting. The Sociagram API is the tool for retailers to use the service on their site. There are 15 APIs under "gift" in our API directory, but this could be the first to offer a "social video" twist to the topic.
Video sharing platform Vimeo plans on adding the tus resumable upload protocol to its API in late 2017. The addition of tus to the Vimeo API will allow developers to build applications that provide new ways to upload videos and allow users to upload videos to Vimeo in multiple sessions.
