Frequently Asked Questions on Video APIs

Telnyx Video API is a platform on which you can build your own customized video experiences. Unlike off-the-shelf video apps, we offer in-depth, API-level control over every step of your video experience- including custom layouts, chat functions, participant management and more.

Check them out for yourself! We have updated our developer docs and added tutorials in our community hub to get you up and running quickly.

Throughout the beta, we worked closely with customers to develop features added value over out-of-the-box solutions. We also have a community of passionate Telnyx developers who are building the future of integrated omnichannel communications with Telnyx Video and our APIs.

We offer 24/7 phone and chat support as standard to all of our customers. Just head to for an in-depth knowledge base and contact information.

We're smaller, grittier, and way more nimble than big CPaaS orgs like Twilio. That lets us build sensible products and APIs with developers in mind, not corporate interests. What's more, we own our network unlike Twilio - that means fewer middlemen for faster troubleshooting and lower costs.

When it comes to real-time comms, the network is the real game-changer. However good or bad your API is, if your "super network" is just a list of old-school vendors, your customers are going to experience lag, dropped calls and texts, and big outages. With our network, you're guaranteed super-low latency and high-quality calling.
