Online video platform VMIX is rolling out an open-source Mobile Video SDK for Android-based devices. The tools will help developers more easily create apps for Android devices, as well as Apple's iPad and iPhone, using an open-source library that extends media-framework APIs in the native device SDKs.
Initial Android support in the VMIX SDK includes the ability to pull and display video thumbnails, titles and descriptions, as well as stream video over Wi-Fi and wireless networks. Developers can present videos individually or organized by category in a video-gallery style application.
The San Diego-based company also said it has added of video-upload functionality for its iPhone development kit, and will extend this new feature to the Android platform by August.
"We continue to add components to our mobile SDK that make it very easy for app developers to harness the power of video quickly," said Greg Kostello, Co-founder and CTO at VMIX.
VMIX now has SDK tools and templates for Android, iPhone and iPad, he said, with plans to continue rolling out features for each of these device types, based on development community feedback.
