Nimble Streamer routes control API

WMSPanel provides rich API for obtaining various data from our products. This includes status API for Nimble Streamer which allows getting real-time information about each Nimble instance and make decisions like load balancing etc.

Now we introduce API for controlling Nimble Streamer behavior.
This includes the following scenarios:

  • VOD streaming via HLS, MPEG-DASH and progressive download;
  • re-streaming content via HLS, HDS, SmoothStreaming and progressive download.

So API allows performing actions which you can find via "Nimble Streamer / Edit Nimble routes" menu. All work is done by manipulating routes. Each route tells Nimble Streamer what to do with incoming connections.



To use this feature set, run the designated methods from listed below. Full list can be found in WMSPanel products API reference.


Each method is illustrated by running respective "curl" command but you may use any technique or programming language to do the same. If you run it from command line, check this FAQ question as well.

These methods give basic capabilities for controlling Nimble behavior. Later on we plan introducing new control features, follow us to learn more and contact us in case of any questions.
