Note. It works with HTTP protocol only.
Broadcast Feed (In-Arena or TV feed)
Data (mostly used in live game broadcasting) is streamed directly from FIBA Live Stats application (live match information) accessible from arena.
In addition, we would kindly advise you to follow the instructions and make the developments accordingly:
- For REST API:
- you need to create Middleware and store all data on your server
- you need to call API from your backend and cache data on your side for a certain period of time. If you don't cache, you will quickly run out of your quota
- For Livestream API:
- you need to make a single connection from your backend, store data there and then distribute it to end users.
