Application/Plugin development opportunity unlocked!

Question

Hi Everyone!

This is Selim from Ant Media. We are trying to reach #StreamingEngineOfTheWorld 🚀🚀 

For this goal, we want to support our community to create new Applications/Plugins. There are already started some applications/plugins nowadays.

Motivation

Historically, Ant Media has only been focusing on the backend, with the idea that customers would build their own applications on top of Ant Media Community or Enterprise Edition. While this has proved to be the right go to market strategy, there is a big demand about plugins (which can modify streams) or applications (that run on top of Ant Media, usually benefiting from AMS APIs).

In this context, we have an ongoing effort to initialize AMS Marketplace hub for our users and clients. By using the AMS Marketplace, a developer would be able to sell own applications through this service. Currently we are focusing on Applications rather than plugins.

As the first step, we would like to work with 3rd party companies or individuals so that they develop their applications of interest, and Ant Media would reimburse the license and/or development costs associated with the development.

Resources to check 

In order to develop an AMS application, you need to check our REST API guide, which is located here.

A blog mentioning how to develop an Application is here.

Apply for development

We would happy to cover license costs and full/partial development costs. If you would like to apply to develop one of the applications above, please send an email to selim@antmedia.io including the following information: 

- Company name: 
- Responsible person: 
- Application/Plugin idea (could be one from the list above, or you can suggest one): 
- How to develop one (please fill in the the following):
- Description of the application 
- Main features
- 3rd party APIs to connect to 
- Languages/frameworks
- Similar applications
- Suggested timeline: 
- Suggested budget (both man/hour rate and total cost):

Happy Streaming!

@Selim i have some queries with regards to the workflow.

 

1. Why do we need to use maven to package  when we only change html/js code and not actual server side java ?

2. is editing the player html file the optimal way to make own application? is there a different way to build/customise player using html/css/JavaScript?  what if someone wants a completely different player with additional functionalities?

Hi @Connessione,

Thank you for your feedback!

1. Why do we need to use maven to package  when we only change html/js code and not actual server side java ?

It's necessary for the distribution. We are using .war extension file for application upload. Maven automatically packeting the application files with .war extension. 

2. is editing the player html file the optimal way to make own application? is there a different way to build/customise player using html/css/JavaScript? what if someone wants a completely different player with additional functionalities?

They can change current application files as well. We just recommending this way for distribution. They can do anything they want. If you give me specific example, I can add more clear detail. 

I hope, it's clear for you.

Best Regards,

Selim

Hi @Selim

Thank you for your answers. My last query was that  - can i build own player using just Javascript library from Ant and use own CSS HTML etc. In some case if i want to build a javascript based player that can be embedded into any HTML file (via element ID etc) would that be feasible? (instead of using the existing playback html file)

 

thanks in advance!

Yes you can build your own player. We are supporting different type of streaming methods. Which one do you want to build your own player? 

In some case if i want to build a javascript based player that can be embedded into any HTML file (via element ID etc) would that be feasible? (instead of using the existing playback html file)

Yes, it's possible. You can do it whatever you want. Actually, if you give me more specific detail regarding your use case, I can guide you better.
