Do you provide direct streaming links for mobile app and website integration with the LightcastAPI?

Yes, of course. We provide APIs and feeds for integration in your websites and mobile apps by your own developers, provided your Lightcast account includes the LightcastAPI & Dev tools (setup fees for custom feed development may apply).

Your Lightcast Feeds include all necessary information for thumbnails, meta-data and video files and will make integration in your mobile apps a “piece of cake” to your mobile app developer.

In regards to integration on websites: Lightcast.com provides some of the most advanced, solid and safe device-responsive, bitrate-adaptive players and it is highly recommended to use the Lightcast video players for integration on websites, for the following reasons:

1. Integrity and reliability of your Media Stats Center (using Lightcast players as one of several sources for tracking and cross-checking)

2. Integrity and reliability of bandwidth accounting (using Lightcast players as one of several sources for tracking and cross-checking)

3. LightcastCDN monitoring services are using Lightcast players to monitor and check on viewership tracking and VM accounting.
