The First LABS Project: Capacity API

Share this page:​

We are very excited to announce that the first LABS project has been officially committed to the Streaming Video Alliance repo: the Capacity API. As explained on its project page,

The Capacity API is intended to allow participants in the federated video delivery service to communicate availability and capacity information as needed. The design is meant to encompass multiple use cases, including one content provider to many CDNs/ISPs as well as more complex multiparty interactions, all while preserving the flexibility and business models of the underlying providers.

The current version of the python API code is provided below. You can access the Github project here.

If you are interested in contributing to this, and other LABS projects, you should consider joining the Streaming Video Alliance.
