Log file delivery
If you need more reporting information than what upLynk provides in the CMS, you may get access to more granular data by enabling log file delivery. You can use these logs to extract very customized and fine-grained information about how you and your end-users interact with the upLynk system.
Receive immediate notification when the upLynk system detects errors such as missing assets or invalid playback URLs.
Documents APIs for backend integration (your application servers connecting to upLynk's application servers).
Generating playback URLs
Documents upLynk’s predictable convention for generating m3u8 playback URLs. This approach simplifies integration with other systems because in many cases an external system can generate the correct upLynk playback URL instead of having to call an upLynk integration API.
