Mindbowser is a Live streaming app development company that is secure and scalable. The streaming apps help you to reach the audience with various live casting for your events conveniently. Streaming of videos is earning popularity in different industries namely; fashion, concerts, sports, corporate, etc. Live streaming apps make it easier for you to deliver the content to the target audience.
Video Streaming apps are meant for engagement. No surprises that the world’s top apps have a video component or are complete video apps. Here are some of the common features that we add to create a streaming service.
We redesigned a platform for modern work, enabling collocated, distributed, and remote teams to communicate and collaborate across formats, tools, channels, and time zones — without the constraints of physical location, meeting space, and whiteboard.
A US-based telemedicine startup wanted to develop a free, simple, and secure telemedicine solution that allows healthcare providers to offer care to their patients outside the clinical setting. With an accelerated development offering, Mindbowser delivered the required features within 21 days of engagement. This was a shot in the arm for the team’s release plans. Today the platform boasts of 100K+ Telehealth sessions weekly.
Mindbowser built a fascinating app in which people can connect with others and share interesting photos and videos. The best of the videos and photos move up the stream based on likes and engagements. On a daily and weekly basis, the most viral photos and video creators received cash rewards.
Mindworks app offers guided meditations to help users get started with the meditation techniques leading up to advanced sessions for those who are already familiar with it. The app has compiled numerous mind talks from meditation masters that can be accessed anytime, anywhere.
The Patient-Centric HIPAA Compliant telemedicine solution offers a web-based platform that requires no download or additional setup to get a Telehealth practice set up for a practitioner. The platform includes multiple-way group call features that allow the physicians to add interpreters and specialists to the virtual visit.
There are various strategies to employ to build a video streaming app at scale. These are some of the strategies used by the most successful streaming services like Netflix.
1. CDN (Content Distribution Network)
The idea behind a content distribution network is to put content as close as possible to the users. When the user requests a video, the app will find the nearest server with the video. The app then streams the video from there to the device. The most significant benefits of CDN are speed and reliability. By moving the video source as close as possible to the people watching it, the viewing experience will be much faster and more reliable.
Along with the optimization of page content and libraries, the use of CDN also ensures that the application has a faster load time. It loads content from the nearest location of the user. The use of AWS Cloudfront can make a significant difference in terms of loading speed along with supporting caching strategy.
2. Third-Party CDNs
Some streaming services even start their own CDNs, but this can only be done if their video catalog is small enough. If the videos are lesser, one location can store all content. As companies grow, building their CDN makes even less sense. Third-party CDNs allow them to have a global reach instantly using existing services. By outsourcing their distribution networks, services get more time to work on higher-priority projects. They can utilize this time to create algorithms to adapt to changing network conditions.
3. HLS Streaming
HLS stands for HTTP Live Streaming. It is a video streaming protocol for delivering audiovisual media to viewers over the internet. This live-streaming protocol was first launched by Apple when they launched the first iPhone. It is used to implement an adaptive bitrate streaming format.
The most crucial feature that HLS offers is that it can adapt the bitrate of the video to the actual speed of the connection. HLS streaming videos are delivered from a container format such as mp4. Container formats contain an encoded video and audio track in a single file. This file is then streamed using the streaming protocol.
HTTP Live Streaming is encoded in different resolutions and bitrates. As the connection gets slower, the protocol adjusts the requested bitrate to the available bandwidth. Therefore, it can work on different bandwidths such as 3G or 4G.
4. AWS For Video Streaming
AWS for Video Streaming can be implemented using a variety of protocols that are layered on top of HTTP. Many popular video streaming websites use AWS. Coursera is one of the companies that would not exist without AWS. To allow users to watch videos on-demand, we use Amazon S3 for storage and Amazon Elastic Transcoder for video processing, and Amazon CloudFront for delivery.
Amazon S3 is an infinitely scalable storage facility for your videos. AWS offers global, scalable delivery at a very affordable price point. It has built-in redundancy and allows users to pay only for what they use. The Elastic Transcoder takes videos from one S3 bucket and transcodes them as per the users’ request. Then, it stores it in a second S3 bucket.
Amazon CloudFront caches videos at the edges. Therefore, users experience uninterrupted video playback with minimal delays due to buffering. AWS offers global, scalable delivery at a very affordable price point.

A virtual video streaming app needs a secure end-to-end streaming workflow, from audio and video capture to encoding, transcoding, packaging, delivery, and playback. Wowza provides end-to-end mobile live-video-streaming technologies that you can directly and affordably get to the market.
With the power of WebRTC, you can easily add real-time communication abilities to your web app that can work on top of an open standard. This framework allows you to share video, audio, and generic data between peers, empowering developers to create powerful audio- and video communication solutions.
Depending on project requirements as well as compliance consideration we can choose the APIs, there are many streaming providers available including Wowza, AWS, Brightcove, Opentok, Agora, and so on. After the consultation, we can help you finalise the one.
It’s also called Adaptive bitrate switching. Basically, it refers to the ability of a video player to adjust the quality of a video dynamically according to the available bandwidth, network conditions, and user’s device performance. To sum up all these, adaptive bitrate streaming allows seamless content quality switching which is not supported by progressive video playback. Read more here.
VOD(Video On Demand) as the name suggests gives the viewer an ability to watch videos at any time as per his convenience, like youtube, Netflix, etc. Whereas Live streaming is watching content in real-time, e.g. sports matches, news, events, etc.
