There are many apps but we will figure out some good about creating video streaming apps
Here are some steps to create live video streaming app
At first, you need to choose a platform. It can be iOS, Android, Windows phone, etc. the video streaming application can be native or hybrid. Native one is an application designed for a specific platform. It can be applied for which it is designed. And a hybrid one is an application that is supported on multiple platforms simultaneously. Let’s talk about MVP features.
1. Registration –Registration of an account is an important task in any application. Without getting registered, no one can approach your app. It is done with the use of a mobile number or e-mail address and password. It’s quite possible that sometimes you forget your password, for this,a forgotten password recovery function by e-mail or a mobile message will be required. User can log in through various social media platforms like Facebook, twitter, etc.
2. Personal/user Profile –This is something about user’s personal/individual information, so we have to see what information should be added like –
- User name,
- Date of Birth,
- E-mail address,
- Contact details,
3. Video streaming –Initially video can be made in single version means it cannot be stored on the server, it will be for a short period. we can’t watch it again.
To store it for a longer, we need to implement the function of watching broadcasts, for this, it will need a larger storage.
We will discuss it in detail. Broadcasting stream passes through the server, gets converted, and then it can be run on the subscriber’s device. And then, the video can be uploaded to the server and is stored for a little time. Duration of the time depends on the size of the storage and after that it will be deleted automatically.
4. Comments –Comments is must, as it is another important feature to make your video streaming app popular. Comments can be implemented in different way. It may be taking feedback, putting a like counter.
It is an attractive way to know interests of people, what they like. They can express their opinion, we can have feedback about how they liked it, so that we can improve the quality of broadcasts for the further development of the application. We will get to know possibilities and interests of the targeted audience, like if they are having low internet connection then what can be done so that it can run in low quality or speed also.
5. Search – Search is a necessary tool to improve the quality of our app. For this, we can implement different search filters –
- By age,
- By location,
- By topics,
- By interests,
- By popularity, etc.
Using above filters, user will easily find what he wants to watch staying connected to your application for longer.
6. Design –Another important feature isdesign of the app. How beautifully it is designed, how does it look, how convenient it is, how clear it is? This feature can be reformed taking feedback of users. There is no readymade idea to design an app but the most popular trends must be included in your app. Put some innovative ideas that can make your app standout from the rest.
7. Privacy –This feature already sounds how important privacy is? As we all know everyone has its own feelings, emotions. Maybe, sometimes user doesn’t want to reveal its broadcasts to everyone. Sometimes, he wants to show it to his family only, sometimes, it may be his friends only. So, to avoid that disclosing for everyone, we need to add a feature, privacy settings. Like to whom they are willing to share their video:
- One single person,
- A list of people, etc.
8. Notifications and schedule –By getting push-notifications, when some interesting broadcast begins, user’s life becomes much comfortable. It does not matter if he is on the app at the moment, broadcast starts, for this we can add schedule feature. So, the user is at his convenience to watch. He can schedule broadcasts.
It was a short guidance on how to create live video streaming app. Some aspects of making video streaming app maybe untouched but discussed above are strong enough to develop your app.Keep your user in mind, as he or she is more important, because, your app is being developed for the user so, it must be user friendly, so that the app is easily accessible.
