Ever since we powered real-time video sharing on Facebook for Sky Sports Transfer Deadline Day, we’ve been convinced that it would become a major force in video distribution. We saw our platform traffic explode as native video clips were shared, and watched in awe as they clocked up tens of thousands of Likes and millions of views.
Today, we’re delighted to reveal that Grabyo has been selected as a launch Facebook Video API partner for Facebook’s newly updated Video API. Having successfully integrated with the API, we are ready to help media companies, brands and other organisations publish native video. By working with Grabyo, publishers can share video clips from any live broadcast TV or IP video feed in real-time. They can also take advantage of all the new features now available via Facebook’s Video API – from content scheduling to geo-gating.
The combined power of social discovery, auto-play and viral distribution on Facebook is truly immense. So we’re delighted to be a Facebook Video API partner and we look forward to helping more media companies and other content publishers capitalise on the rapidly-evolving opportunity in social video.
Exciting times at Grabyo HQ!
