What can I do with Zype's Live Events APIs?

When creating a live event with Zype’s Live Events APIs, developers can easily configure granular elements of the live stream such as:

  • Event details - title, description, and event type
  • DVR window - duration that the DVR will be available for the event
  • Scheduled broadcast times - when the broadcast will start and stop
  • Paywall monetization settings - set whether the broadcast requires subscription, purchase, rental, or pass plans
  • Auto archive settings - enable auto archiving of the live event at the conclusion of a broadcast

You can also use Zype’s Live Events APIs to start, stop, or archive live events as discrete controls. This provides a control surface for custom applications where live events may not have set scheduled start and end times.
