The client is a leading sports and action camera manufacturer. The company wanted its desktop app to upload media files from the customers’ devices to social networks.
So the client turned to the Softeq C++ team to develop a cross-platform library. With this library’s help, the software could enable users to easily upload videos to YouTube and Facebook.
The solution, implemented as a C++ library compatible with the customer’s API, performs a background upload of media files to a user account on Facebook or YouTube, while displaying the upload progress with the possibility to cancel or pause data transfer.
To perform social media integration, the team had to deal with HTTPS REST API. The Softeq team had to swiftly dip into the technology, identify limitations (YouTube’s library doesn’t officially support Windows OS), and find workarounds by creating wrappers and helpers — all within a week’s time.
The team completed the development on budget, right within the tight timeline, thus ensuring non-interrupted workflow for the customer’s production units.
