Using VideoKit

VideoKit iOS SDK requires Xcode 10 or higher.

As part of the VideoKit iOS SDK we are using the following underlying frameworks:

  • AVFoundation.framework
  • AVKit.framework
  • CoreData.framework
  • CoreGraphics.framework
  • CoreLocation.framework
  • CoreText.framework
  • Foundation.framework
  • UIKit.framework
  • AssetsLibrary.framework (Recorder)
  • ReplayKit.framework (Live)
  • zlib

Prerequisites#

In order to access the camera and microphone, iOS 10 requires you to set values for the NSCameraUsageDescription and NSMicrophoneUsageDescription keys in the Info.plist file.

These define strings to inform the user why your app uses the camera and microphone. For more information see the Apple documentation on Cocoa keys.

Ensure that camera and microphone permission keys in your app's Info.plist are set up:

<key>NSCameraUsageDescription</key>
<string>Allowing access to the camera lets you take photos and videos.</string>
<key>NSMicrophoneUsageDescription</key>
<string>Allowing access to the microphone lets you record audio.</string>
