In addition to powering live video experiences, TokBox is also in the business of making it simple to create content. Whether it’s for a social live stream that is delivered to millions of viewers, or a webinar recorded for post-event distribution, the OpenTok platform makes it possible.
There is no one-size-fits-all video layout that accommodates this wide range of use cases. You wouldn’t use the same UI/UX for a broadcast app as you would a customer service app, right? Developers using our platform need adequate control and flexibility to create UI/UX optimized for their experience.
For this reason, we’re excited to release new REST APIs to customize video layout for content creators using the Archiving API and Broadcast API for HLS & RTMP. Now developers using these two features can create a custom layout using CSS, or select one of the following prebuilt layouts:
1. Default, best-fit or “Brady Bunch”
3. Vertical Presentation
4. Horizontal Presentation
Want to give it a try? We’ve added support for the REST API in our Playground tool so you can quickly see it in action for both Archiving & Broadcast feature. If you’d like to dig into the API documentation can be found in the Archiving & Broadcast section.
