Quick Start

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 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.
    Start VT_Publisher.exe, VT_Receiver.exe or VT_Server.exe
  3. 3.
    Start SocketIOSample.exe
  4. 4.
    Load your special VT API license from the file and press Connect Button
  5. 5.
    The connection to signaling will be initiated.
You will need a special license to work with VT API which you can request through support or sales.
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.
