Hacking Cinegy ‒ Cinegy Convert

This post provides insights on the new features available in Cinegy Convert v11 (pending for release). With powerful pre- and post-scripting events it is possible to extend your workflow way further the out-of-the-box functionality, for example, automatically publish videos on Facebook on user's behalf. Source codes are also available for the reference.

This post provides details on the new Cinegy Playout WEB API available starting from the v11 release. The post explains basic features available and demonstrates the possible results visualization with simple HTML/CSS/Java script. Source codes are also available for the reference.

Cinegy Air - Using Engine REST APIs

With the release of Cinegy Air 11, there are now some enhanced REST API calls accessible via the playout engine, which allows us to make some interesting interfaces to extend Cinegy Air. While this does not allow complete control of the playlist (for this you will need to wait for Cinegy Air 12, or access the engine via the traditional COM API), it does allow some common activities to be controlled - which can be used to make some useful remote panels.

Below, we will take a look at these APIs, and then direct you to a simple HTML5 browser-based panel which uses these APIs to control a group of Cinegy Air engines.

Hacking Cinegy

The idea behind the original presentation at TechCon 2016 was to show how you can extend your workflow using the open architecture of Cinegy products and open Cinegy APIs.

So in this post we will revisit some of these demonstrations and show that such kind of 'scripting' is not as difficult as most of you may think and can open new horizons for your everyday tasks.

During this session we will explain why it may be worth to make some efforts to extend your traditional workflow, as you can achieve very exciting results; and our demos will show you some practical Cinegy API applications in the real environment.

You will also be able to find all source code files used in these demos from our GitHub repos.
