With Pinata Video Streaming and your Dedicated Gateway, you get access to streaming video. Rather than wait for a video to download entirely, people who want to view your content can stream it in the same way they stream YouTube and Netflix. ‌

All you have to do is append the following to the end of your gateway URL for any particular video: ‌

yourGatewayURL?stream=true

Here is an example of a video without streaming:

https://kyletut.com/ipfs/QmahdJBPpwwheQMvKHnJEgs1NvnsFccxfPvcRUt9uKBsnk

And here's an example of a video with streaming:

https://kyletut.com/ipfs/QmahdJBPpwwheQMvKHnJEgs1NvnsFccxfPvcRUt9uKBsnk?stream=true

This will apply to videos you have uploaded since getting access to the Video Streaming functionality. Any previously uploaded videos will need to be re-uploaded to get access to streaming. ‌

If you don't have a Dedicated Gateway yet, try it out for yourself today!
