Getting Started: Wireframes & Prototyping
Our first task was to create a new set of wireframes with the designs of how the app was going to look like. Next, we had to make the app’s video streaming concurrency time much higher for creating a smooth and swift streaming experience for users.
- User registration and login
- Live video streaming
- Real-time group chat or live comments
- Subscriptions and push notifications
- Allow users to support the streamer by donating money.
- Personal consultations can be offered as a premium feature for an additional cost. This can be one-on-one chats or closed user groups.
- Analytics can be used to monitor users’ preferences, time spent on channels, clicks on ads, and various other data sets obtained from certain user actions.
- The magic of WebRTC allows it to transmit audio and video between browsers in real-time with no downloads or plugins.
So if you want to build another Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant Video, or YouTube, don’t focus on content, nor try to repeat the success of large online video companies. Instead, build a great online tech company that distributes video. Leverage the power of technology to make creativity shine with new colors, adding storytelling, emotional elements, and more. So don’t focus on content, provide tools for content creators.
