Livestream has opened up its live video streaming platform by releasing several APIs, enabling Livestream's free and premium service to be integrated into in-house or third party online video platforms and players.
What this means is that users (customers, programmers, and web) can build their own Livestream powered video players and clip libraries using HTML, Adobe Flash or Adobe Flex development environments. Other Platform API's released today include the Live Publishing API, Guide API, Account API and Chat API.
The most notable implimentation of the Livestream API is a plug-in LiveStream jointly developed with video platform Brightcove. Brightcove customers can stream live and linear video via Livestream into their existing Brightcove player.
"Livestream is an important partner for us as we look to meet the increased demand for high quality live streaming among our global customer base," said Chris Johnston, director of technology partnerships at Brightcove. "In partnering with organizations like Livestream, we're able to provide customers with seamless access to a broad feature set for live publishing, distribution and analytics."
