Livestream Learn Recap: The New Livestream API

Livestream released our first public API in September, giving developers access to the leading live video platform. On this week’s Livestream Learn, we sat down with Jed Meade, Product Lead, and Matt Newberg, Product Manager, to discuss the new features of our API, how companies are using it to distribute their content, and what our customers can do to get started with their own custom configurations.

Jed provided a brief overview of API functionality, focusing specifically on how the Livestream API can streamline the event creation, broadcasting, and distribution process. Matt walked through how two of our users, OTT platform Edgesport and college sports network Campus Insiders, utilize our API to bring live video into their existing web infrastructure, with added pay-per-view functionality through Cleeng integration.
