iOS Video How-to

Mobile Development, Software development, Video Streaming / 14.03.20171 comments

Hi! My name is Sergii Simakhin and I’m an iOS software engineer at Cayugasoft since end of 2013.

I love to create great native iOS apps of any level of complexity because it’s a challenge for me every time I start a new project 😀. Working at Cayugasoft, some of my projects contained media features like streaming / converting / trimming videos, music, data from camera / microphone, mixing all of them, etc. So I decided to tell you the basics of merging videos using AVFoundation.

To be honest, this is not as easy as it looks. But it’s not quite hell.

The example I’ll show you will be written with Objective-C, the language that I’ve really loved working with since 2013.

When we’re in discussions with a client about developing a new mobile app, it’s usually not long before the question comes up: “What technologies do you want to use for this app?” Some clients may have already selected the technology they prefer, and normally that settles the question—we use what they want to use. But when the client doesn’t have a strong point of view on this, they normally ask for our recommendations.
