API Access and Live Video Stream Considerations With Wowza Streaming CloudAugust 9, 2018 When building a live-streaming video app, you probably want to start off by getting your hands on some streaming tools and experimenting with what you want to build. For example, you can sign up for a free trial of the Wowza Streaming Cloud™ service, and create a sample app using a developer toolkit such as the Wowza GoCoder™ SDK. After testing your sample app, you’re ready to push to production—but you’ll need to get access to the Wowza Streaming Cloud API for processing services. In this video tutorial, we’ll walk you through gaining API access, and cover some key considerations for building a livestream app, such as:
- How large of a viewer base do you expect to broadcast to?
- Will your app be broadcasting live video, receiving live video or both?
- What encoding software or hardware will you be using?
