During a recent Postman livestream with Twilio Principal Software Engineer Miguel Grinberg, we streamed about streaming using the just-released Twilio Live API to build our own interactive audio and video livestreaming experience. Most developers are familiar with Twilio’s SMS messaging API, but Twilio has a plethora of other communication APIs in their public workspace in Postman.
Miguel is well known in the Python community for authoring several books on Python and Flask. Fortunately for me, we decided to work with Node.js and in Postman. Miguel used his new favorite API to invite live viewers to join a separate livestream (without audio to avoid an echo), which inevitably led to a stream for mimes.
Watch what happened and hear straight from Miguel in this full video:
Check out a few highlights
- Fork and deploy the example video application
- Import OpenAPI specification in Postman
- Create player streamer and media processor via API
