Zype’s Endpoint API Services allow customers to produce and publish custom video streaming applications on the web and supported set-top, smart TV, gaming, and mobile app marketplaces. Content and monetization settings for these apps can be configured within the Zype Platform and are easily accessible for app development using the Endpoint API Service.
The service also utilizes OAuth (open authentication service based off authorization tokens) to enable a universal consumer authentication method across all endpoint apps integrated with the Zype platform. This creates a “realm” around a content owner’s property (website, OTT endpoints, mobile apps, etc.) where consumers can use the same single authentication method everywhere and all endpoint apps pass player requests and engagement analytics data back into the Zype platform.
The Endpoint API Service provides a broad range of app development capabilities within supported app endpoints. With the Endpoint API Service, developers can access and configure video content arrangement, display video content and metadata, authenticate and manage consumers, integrate 3rd-party services, and more.
Using Zype’s Endpoint API Service, developers can create a rich video streaming application on the Roku app marketplace that includes the following features:

Step 3 – Organize videos into playlists using our Playlists menu.
Step 4 – Set up and configure monetization settings using the Make Money menu.
Step 5 – Select which endpoint apps you would like to activate using our Manage Apps menu . In this case, you would select the Roku app production tool to create a new Roku app profile.
