VMIX customers who want to offer their videos on the Apple iPad and iPhone have a helpful new resource. The online video platform (OVP) has just announced a software development kit (SDK) for mobile app creation.
The SDK includes an open-source library that extends the Apple Media Framework APIs in Apple’s iOS. VMIX has announced that next month it will update the SDK with support for Google Android devices.
“Not only does the SDK contain the libraries needed to build out simple to complex mobile apps, but we’ve included code for both iPad and iPhone sample apps—with other devices following soon—that developers can modify to create their own branded applications with very little effort,” says Greg Kostello, VMIX’s co-founder and CTO.
VMIX is also offering online documentation to help developers get started, and an upload service that accepts videos or images from any device, in any format. Developers can sign up for a free trial, to get a feel for VMIX’s service.
“Our SDK makes it easy for developers to add dynamic, streaming media and video sharing to just about any application. We believe simplifying integration will go a long way towards helping organizations unlock the immense potential that video holds for their mobile channels,” adds Kostello.
