Telnyx Video API

A video API is an application programming interface that enables the delivery of video-based content over the internet, enabling organizations to build high-quality, personalized video experiences into their applications. APIs allow businesses to take complete control of their customer experience–with video embedded directly into websites and applications with custom layouts and branding.
