Quick Start
This is the beta version of VT API documentation
This article explains how to build your own application to control Video Transport native apps (VT_Publisher, VT_Receiver, and VT_Server) using Socket.IO. This is a great way to build a white-labeled solution based on Medialooks Video Transport technology. Currently in beta and available only with the on-prem edition of Video Transport.
Below, you can download our VT API sample written on C# and its source code.
How to run the SocketIOSample.exe:
  1. 1.
    Download Video Transport on each location that you are going to use in your scenario.
  2. 2.
    Put your special VT API license file into the Video Transport installation folder at each location.
  3. 3.
    Start VT_Publisher.exe, VT_Receiver.exe or VT_Server.exe
  4. 4.
    Start SocketIOSample.exe
  5. 5.
    Load license from file and press Connect Button
  6. 6.
    The connection to signaling will be initiated.
You will need a special license to work with VT API which you can download from your Control Panel by checking the "VT API" button.
This license must have the following JSON properties:
  • username
  • password
  • room_name (you can get it from publisher_id if it is present in your license)
  • signaling_url
Read the next page to know how to establish a connection to signaling.
