Using Amazon IVS to Create Interactive Live Streaming Experiences with Timed Metadata
Too Long; Didn't ReadAmazon Interactive Video Service (Amazon IVS) gives us a few amazing features that enable interactivity. Timed metadata is a way to embed information in your live stream at a specific point in time. The metadata that you publish becomes a part of the video stream itself since it uses ID3 tags embedded directly into the video segments. We'll plug this into our Amazon IVS player example that we've been working with and build upon it. The next few posts will look at adding some interactivity to our playback experience.
