A Video API, or Video Application Program Interface, is a set of video instructions, including commands, protocols and functions, that developers can use to build web, mobile and desktop video apps. Instead of writing new lines of code from scratch, programmers can use predefined functions so that they can save time and focus more on their core project.
In addition, API easily allows compatibility between programs thanks to common protocols.
