Announcing Video SDK for Linux!

We’re happy to announce the initial release of the Video SDK for Linux, which includes the features you are used to from Video SDK, such as:

  • Video SDK sessions that connect two or more users so that they can communicate over video, audio, chat, and other methods.

  • Sessions scoped to your Video SDK account, spun up on demand (meaning they do not need to be scheduled).

  • Session capacity of up to 1,000 users.

  • Live streaming a session to an unlimited view-audience using Real-Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP) on a platform like YouTube or to a custom endpoint.

  • Direct access to raw video and audio data on native platforms. This enables improved interaction between users and the app video stream.

    • For example, you could release a gaming video streaming app with direct interaction between the player and viewers based on in-game events or prompts from the community.
    • Or an augmented reality (AR) streaming platform with direct viewer access to on-screen video.
    • You can also use raw data to build custom live transcription or video or audio analysis.
