api.video upload a videoE

api.video is the video infrastructure for product builders. Lightning fast video APIs for integrating, scaling, and managing on-demand & low latency live streaming features in your app.

Creating a video uploader with JavaScript and api.video

Videos are very large files, and all servers have a limit on filesize upload. The last thing you want your users to see (after waiting for the file to upload) is a "413: request too large" error.

The fix is to use the HTML 5 File API to slice the video into smaller bits, and to upload each smaller chunk.

In this demo, videos are split into 1 MB chunks, but larger sizes are ok (at APi.video, we suggest staying under 100MB per chunk).

Getting started

All HTML5 and vanilla JS.

All you need is a delegated upload token from api.video. Replace the token parameter in the variable url, nad your own version will be running in no time.
