Building a video streaming application might seem daunting at first, but this video will breakdown how this can be achieved. Specifically, we’ll demonstrate how to implement a streaming service with the following components:
– A server-side Node.js application that will handle fetching and streaming videos, generating thumbnails for your videos, and serving captions and subtitles for videos.
– A client application in React that will consume the videos on our server. This application will have two views: a listing of videos that are available, and a player view for each video.
