We are using the Mux Player web component to build our virtual experience this year and it is SLICK 🔥
So, without further ado: Introducing Mux Player. It’s free, open source, and the best way to build an amazing player experience on top of the Mux API. https://mux.com/player 15/15
@brian_lovin @MuxHQ was an absolute lifesaver for videos on a previous project. Thumbnails, truly instant play via livestreaming, resizing, whole bit. I’m often skeptical of third-party services but I never could’ve competed with the UX they let me deliver
never thought i’d see someone talk about @MuxHQ let alone any other developer API on TikTok, but it’s 2022 and NASA’s Webb Telescope took hi-res photos of another galaxy. the sky is no longer the limit.
Player 2 has entered the game 🕹. See why @arcade_demo chose Mux to bring their demo building platform to the next level.
Super excited to announce that we'll be using @MuxHQ to power this year's #CascadiaJS livestream! 📺 As a conference by devs for devs, building this experience on an API feels great and we can't wait to push the limits of the platform's features ⚡️ https://2022.cascadiajs.com/sponsors/mux

We’re excited to announce that Mux Player is now released to Public Beta! Mux Player is already integrated with Mux Video and Mux Data, and supports a variety of features such as adaptive controls based on stream type, timeline hover previews, Chromecast & Airplay, Signed URLs, Custom Domains, and more.

For more details, check out our Blog Post and Player documentation.

This release of the Mux Data SDK for ExoPlayer adds support for ExoPlayer v2.18.1 and a couple of bug fixes related to uncommon use cases. The SDK should be more stable when used with custom builds of ExoPlayer. We also fixed a data integrity issue related to views with very long periods of user inactivity.

Mux Data is changing the way ids are generated for Video Views in the Mux Data API. The view id returned from the List Videos Views API will now be the same as the id and view_id returned from the Get Video View API for any views ending on or after July 28, 2022 UTC. Previously, these ids were different. The format will still be a string and users that are treating the view id from the Video Views API as an opaque string can continue using the id in the same way with no changes. This change allows you to reference the views with a consistent id from the List and Get Video View APIs.

This update for the Mux Data SDK for Exoplayer allows you to override metadata about the device that is playing your video. This feature is has not been implemented on Mux Data backend yet, but you can start using it in the Mux Data SDK with this latest release.

We’ve increased the maximum value of the live stream’s reconnect_window parameter from 5 minutes (300 seconds) to 30 minutes (1800 seconds). Reconnect Window is the time in seconds you want Mux to wait for the live stream to reconnect before considering it completed and generating a recorded asset. For many scenarios, Reconnect Window of 5 minutes just was not long enough, like an encoder machine reboot. You can set the reconnect_window parameter with live stream Create API and Update API endpoints.

We’ve released Reconnect Window support for all modes of live streams, including reduced & low latency, in Beta. Reconnect Window is the time in seconds you want Mux to wait for the live stream to reconnect before considering it completed and generating a recorded asset. You can also add a slate image as a video frame during live stream interruptions to let your viewers know the video isn’t over and you’re trying to reconnect. You can read more on docs and the blog post .

We’ve released Custom Domain for Mux Video to Beta. You can stream videos or serve images from your branded domain instead of from stream.mux.com and image.mux.com. You can learn more about Custom Domains, reasons to use, and information on requesting access from the announcement blog.

We have released the Streaming Exports for Mux Data Video Views to General Availability. This feature allows you to export Video Views, as they are completed by viewers, to your data infrastructure using a streaming data service, either Amazon Kinesis or Google Pub/Sub. Currently, Streaming Exports are available to customers on Media or custom plans. The docs have more detailed information on integrating and using the Streaming Exports data.

By providing technical terms and proper names to us before a live stream, we can increase the accuracy of auto-generated live closed captions.  Create a transcription library by making a POST request to the /transcription-vocabularies endpoint and define the input parameters.

Closed captions refer to the visual display of the audio in a program. Auto-generated live closed captions use Artificial Intelligence based speech-to-text technology to generate closed captions. You can enable live auto-generated captions by adding the generated_subtitles array at time of stream creation or to an existing live stream.

Capture view data with Amazon Kinesis Data Streams

In this post, you’ll learn how to configure your AWS account to process real-time view data from Mux viewing sessions, allowing you to take the next step toward providing and receiving insights for your application.

Capture view data with Google Pub/Sub

When you pair Mux with other powerful tools, like Google Analytics, it's easier to synthesize and visualize data related to our products, whether it be a blog, podcast, or video. However, occasionally you may crave a level of customization and granularity that even the above tools can’t provide out of the box. This level of customization requires a robust and scalable system to ingest and distribute data. One such system is Google Pub/Sub.
