Introducing Our API
It is true, we offer a video conferencing API key as well. This means that you can build our application into yours to use eyeson whenever you want with one simple click. Moreover, you can keep your user data on your own platform.
If you use our standard web UI with our API, we have summed up the most important features that will be available to you:
If you want to spontaneously invite a colleague or friend to your video conference just click on "Invite Guest" and a link as well as QR code is provided. Send it to the respective person and she/he can enter without any installation or sign-up. Easy, fast & effective.
You can share your screen or files with your video conferencing participants in the video stream. Just drag&drop or click on the respective button and decide which content you want to show. The sharing can be ended by you or your video conferencing participants.
Of course, you can also record the whole video call. Though, eyeson asks everybody automatically for their permission before the recording can be started.
This pretty funny feature can be used to show your delight, sadness, agreement, etc. It means that a gif from Giphy is shown for a few seconds instead of your own video. However, in case that it gets a little bit out of control, you can turn this feature off as well.
Stream your group video calls live on YouTube, Facebook, or other streaming providers. It's fast and easy: Simply copy and paste the streaming information from your streaming provider into the respective fields in your eyeson streaming pop-up and start the live stream!
Decide who should be seen. Choose between auto and different custom layouts with which you can assign positions to participants. For all layouts, you also have the option to "fill empty spots automatically" and to "arrange users by voice activity". For more information, click on the link above.
One-click. One snapshot of the group video call. Fast and intuitive!
During a meeting you can write messages to all your participants. Kindly note that the chat will not be saved after the meeting.
