Building a Live Feed of FIFA World Cup Moments

Capturing a Live Stream of FIFA World Cup Moments

Widely acclaimed as the world’s biggest sporting event, the World Cup has established itself as the most captivating tournament to look forward to across the globe. Dating back to 1930, when the first World Cup was hosted in Uruguay, it has always engendered numerous moments of excitement, not only for the participating teams but also for the countries they ably represented. Little could anyone have anticipated that a game of 22 able-bodied men running to take possession of a leather ball could become so famous.

This year’s World Cup is, as before, living up to expectations with countless surprising and enthralling moments. In fact, it’s been a rollercoaster of intense emotions as we’ve seen some of the football giant nations kicked out of the tournament.

If you are like me and love to savor some of the memorable moments from the 2018 FIFA World Cup, let me show you a few impressive Cloudinary features for capturing them. As a rule, professionally resizing and merging multiple videos, also adding songs as an overlay, would require access to sophisticated tools and a reasonable level of expertise on how to use them effectively. Not so with Cloudinary, which provisions for end-to-end video-management services geared toward compilation of videos in just a few simple steps without coding. I’ll walk you through them below.

Delivering Compelling Video Experiences at Scale

Upload Videos

For easy access to your videos, upload them to Cloudinary and store the public ID of each of the videos.To access a video, type in the browser: https://res.cloudinary.com/YOURCLOUDNAME/video/upload/ID.mp4

Replace YOURCLOUDNAME and ID with the your cloud name and the video’s public ID on Cloudinary, respectively, as in this example:

Manipulate Videos

In Cloudinary, you can manipulate and thus transform videos directly from the URL by adding the required properties, for example:

Ruby:
Copy to clipboard
cl_video_tag("bade", :width=>600, :height=>300, :crop=>"fill")
PHP:
Copy to clipboard
cl_video_tag("bade", array("width"=>600, "height"=>300, "crop"=>"fill"))
Python:
Copy to clipboard
CloudinaryVideo("bade").video(width=600, height=300, crop="fill")
Node.js:
Copy to clipboard
cloudinary.video("bade", {width: 600, height: 300, crop: "fill"})
Java:
Copy to clipboard
cloudinary.url().transformation(new Transformation().width(600).height(300).crop("fill")).videoTag("bade");
JS:
Copy to clipboard
cloudinary.videoTag('bade', {width: 600, height: 300, crop: "fill"}).toHtml();
jQuery:
Copy to clipboard
$.cloudinary.video("bade", {width: 600, height: 300, crop: "fill"})
React:
Copy to clipboard
<Video publicId="bade" >
  <Transformation width="600" height="300" crop="fill" />
</Video>
Vue.js:
Copy to clipboard
<cld-video publicId="bade" >
  <cld-transformation width="600" height="300" crop="fill" />
</cld-video>
Angular:
Copy to clipboard
<cl-video public-id="bade" >
  <cl-transformation width="600" height="300" crop="fill">
  </cl-transformation>
</cl-video>
.Net:
Copy to clipboard
cloudinary.Api.UrlVideoUp.Transform(new Transformation().Width(600).Height(300).Crop("fill")).BuildVideoTag("bade")
Android:
Copy to clipboard
MediaManager.get().url().transformation(new Transformation().width(600).height(300).crop("fill")).resourceType("video").generate("bade.mp4");
iOS:
Copy to clipboard
cloudinary.createUrl().setResourceType("video").setTransformation(CLDTransformation().setWidth(600).setHeight(300).setCrop("fill")).generate("bade.mp4")

The link above shows that you’ve dynamically resized a video on the fly by configuring its width (w) and height (h) parameters. Did you notice the size of the video, too? Now compare it with that of the original. Cool, right? You’ve changed the video’s default dimension directly from the browser, hassle free.

Concatenate Videos

With Cloudinary, you can easily concatenate two videos by configuring the overlay video parameter l_video: in the URL to show the name of another uploaded video. You can add many videos in the same way but that might be problematic because all of them will be played simultaneously.

To overlay videos and play them sequentially, add the splice flag fl_splice to the URL for concatenation.. Do the following:

Update your link to look like this:

Copy to clipboard
https://res.cloudinary.com/*YOUR_CLOUD_NAME*/video/upload/*OVERLAY_TRANSFORMATION_HERE*/*ID*.mp4 …

Replace the OVERLAY-TRANSFORMATIONHERE variable with the appropriate parameters, for example:

l_video:*ID*,fl_splice,w_1.0,h_1.0,fl_relative,c_fill

Replace ID with the ID of the video with which you are overlaying. For example, if that video ID is suarez, your URL would look like this:

Ruby:
Copy to clipboard
cl_video_tag("bade", :transformation=>[
  {:width=>600, :height=>300, :crop=>"scale"},
  {:overlay=>"video:suarez", :flags=>["splice", "relative"], :width=>1.0, :height=>1.0, :crop=>"fill"}
  ])
PHP:
Copy to clipboard
cl_video_tag("bade", array("transformation"=>array(
  array("width"=>600, "height"=>300, "crop"=>"scale"),
  array("overlay"=>"video:suarez", "flags"=>array("splice", "relative"), "width"=>1.0, "height"=>1.0, "crop"=>"fill")
  )))
Python:
Copy to clipboard
CloudinaryVideo("bade").video(transformation=[
  {'width': 600, 'height': 300, 'crop': "scale"},
  {'overlay': "video:suarez", 'flags': ["splice", "relative"], 'width': 1.0, 'height': 1.0, 'crop': "fill"}
  ])
Node.js:
Copy to clipboard
cloudinary.video("bade", {transformation: [
  {width: 600, height: 300, crop: "scale"},
  {overlay: "video:suarez", flags: ["splice", "relative"], width: "1.0", height: "1.0", crop: "fill"}
  ]})
Java:
Copy to clipboard
cloudinary.url().transformation(new Transformation()
  .width(600).height(300).crop("scale").chain()
  .overlay(new Layer().publicId("video:suarez")).flags("splice", "relative").width(1.0).height(1.0).crop("fill")).videoTag("bade");
JS:
Copy to clipboard
cloudinary.videoTag('bade', {transformation: [
  {width: 600, height: 300, crop: "scale"},
  {overlay: new cloudinary.Layer().publicId("video:suarez"), flags: ["splice", "relative"], width: "1.0", height: "1.0", crop: "fill"}
  ]}).toHtml();
jQuery:
Copy to clipboard
$.cloudinary.video("bade", {transformation: [
  {width: 600, height: 300, crop: "scale"},
  {overlay: new cloudinary.Layer().publicId("video:suarez"), flags: ["splice", "relative"], width: "1.0", height: "1.0", crop: "fill"}
  ]})
React:
Copy to clipboard
<Video publicId="bade" >
  <Transformation width="600" height="300" crop="scale" />
  <Transformation overlay="video:suarez" flags={["splice", "relative"]} width="1.0" height="1.0" crop="fill" />
</Video>
Vue.js:
Copy to clipboard
<cld-video publicId="bade" >
  <cld-transformation width="600" height="300" crop="scale" />
  <cld-transformation overlay="video:suarez" flags={["splice", "relative"]} width="1.0" height="1.0" crop="fill" />
</cld-video>
Angular:
Copy to clipboard
<cl-video public-id="bade" >
  <cl-transformation width="600" height="300" crop="scale">
  </cl-transformation>
  <cl-transformation overlay="video:suarez" flags={{["splice", "relative"]}} width="1.0" height="1.0" crop="fill">
  </cl-transformation>
</cl-video>
.Net:
Copy to clipboard
cloudinary.Api.UrlVideoUp.Transform(new Transformation()
  .Width(600).Height(300).Crop("scale").Chain()
  .Overlay(new Layer().PublicId("video:suarez")).Flags("splice", "relative").Width(1.0).Height(1.0).Crop("fill")).BuildVideoTag("bade")
Android:
Copy to clipboard
MediaManager.get().url().transformation(new Transformation()
  .width(600).height(300).crop("scale").chain()
  .overlay(new Layer().publicId("video:suarez")).flags("splice", "relative").width(1.0).height(1.0).crop("fill")).resourceType("video").generate("bade.mp4");
iOS:
Copy to clipboard
cloudinary.createUrl().setResourceType("video").setTransformation(CLDTransformation()
  .setWidth(600).setHeight(300).setCrop("scale").chain()
  .setOverlay("video:suarez").setFlags("splice", "relative").setWidth(1.0).setHeight(1.0).setCrop("fill")).generate("bade.mp4")

You’ve now concatenated video suarez with video bade into a single video.

Note
..*l_video is the video with which you want to overlay.

..* fl_splice tells Cloudinary to concatenate the video, not overlay it. This parameter is crucial for the videos to play successively.

..* w_1.0,h_1.0,fl_relative,c_fill tells Cloudinary to scale the video’s width and height to fit its original dimension. 1.0 stands for 100 percent.

Add Videos

Let’s add one more video with a public ID of messi-100. Your URL would look like this:

Ruby:
Copy to clipboard
cl_video_tag("bade", :transformation=>[
  {:width=>600, :height=>300, :crop=>"scale"},
  {:overlay=>"video:suarez", :flags=>["splice", "relative"], :width=>1.0, :height=>1.0, :crop=>"fill"},
  {:overlay=>"video:messi-100", :flags=>["splice", "relative"], :width=>1.0, :height=>1.0, :crop=>"fill"}
  ])
PHP:
Copy to clipboard
cl_video_tag("bade", array("transformation"=>array(
  array("width"=>600, "height"=>300, "crop"=>"scale"),
  array("overlay"=>"video:suarez", "flags"=>array("splice", "relative"), "width"=>1.0, "height"=>1.0, "crop"=>"fill"),
  array("overlay"=>"video:messi-100", "flags"=>array("splice", "relative"), "width"=>1.0, "height"=>1.0, "crop"=>"fill")
  )))
Python:
Copy to clipboard
CloudinaryVideo("bade").video(transformation=[

  ])
Node.js:

  ]})

Mute Videos

Also in Cloudinary, you can control a video’s audio volume by configuring the volume effect parameter e_volume in the URL. In this tutorial, let’s mute the video completely with e_volume:-100 since we intend to replace the video with ours. Your URL would then look like this::

Ruby:
Copy to clipboard
cl_video_tag("bade", :transformation=>[
  {:width=>600, :height=>300, :crop=>"scale"},
  {:overlay=>"video:suarez", :flags=>["splice", "relative"], :width=>1.0, :height=>1.0, :crop=>"fill"},
  {:overlay=>"video:messi-100", :flags=>["splice", "relative"], :width=>1.0, :height=>1.0, :crop=>"fill"},
  {:effect=>"volume:-100"}
  ])
PHP:
Copy to clipboard
cl_video_tag("bade", array("transformation"=>array(
  array("width"=>600, "height"=>300, "crop"=>"scale"),
  array("overlay"=>"video:suarez", "flags"=>array("splice", "relative"), "width"=>1.0, "height"=>1.0, "crop"=>"fill"),
  array("overlay"=>"video:messi-100", "flags"=>array("splice", "relative"), "width"=>1.0, "height"=>1.0, "crop"=>"fill"),
  array("effect"=>"volume:-100")
  )))
Python:
Copy to clipboard
CloudinaryVideo("bade").video(transformation=[

  .setEffect("volume:-100")).generate("bade.mp4")

Customize Themes

Wrapping up, you can overlay your own sound to be played simultaneously with that in the concatenated videos. Simply upload an MP3 file and then configure the l_video: parameter to overlay it, like this:

Ruby:
Copy to clipboard
cl_video_tag("bade", :transformation=>[
  {:width=>600, :height=>300, :crop=>"scale"},
  {:overlay=>"video:suarez", :flags=>["splice", "relative"], :width=>1.0, :height=>1.0, :crop=>"fill"},
  {:overlay=>"video:messi-100", :flags=>["splice", "relative"], :width=>1.0, :height=>1.0, :crop=>"fill"},
  {:effect=>"volume:-100"},
  {:overlay=>"video:sound.mp3"}
  ])
PHP:
Copy to clipboard
cl_video_tag("bade", array("transformation"=>array(
  array("width"=>600, "height"=>300, "crop"=>"scale"),
  array("overlay"=>"video:suarez", "flags"=>array("splice", "relative"), "width"=>1.0, "height"=>1.0, "crop"=>"fill"),
  array("overlay"=>"video:messi-100", "flags"=>array("splice", "relative"), "width"=>1.0, "height"=>1.0, "crop"=>"fill"),
  array("effect"=>"volume:-100"),
  array("overlay"=>"video:sound.mp3")

Transitioning JPEG-Based to JPEG XL-Based Images for Web Platforms

When the JPEG codec was being developed in the late 1980s, no standardized, lossy image-compression formats existed. JPEG became ready at exactly the right time in 1992, when the World Wide Web and digital cameras were about to become a thing. The introduction of HTML’s <img> tag in 1995 ensured the recognition of JPEG as the web format—at least for photographs. During the 1990s, digital cameras replaced analog ones and, given the limited memory capacities of that era, JPEG became the standard format for photography, especially for consumer-grade cameras.

Amplify Your Jamstack With Video

By Alex Patterson
Amplify Your Jamstack With Cloudinary Video

As defined by Amazon Web Services (AWS), Amplify is a set of products and tools with which mobile and front-end web developers can build and deploy AWS-powered, secure, and scalable full-stack apps. Also, you can efficiently configure their back ends, connect them to your app with just a few lines of code, and deploy static web apps in only three steps. Historically, because of their performance issues, managing images and videos is a daunting challenge for developers. Even though you can easily load media to an S3 bucket with AWS Amplify, transforming, compressing, and responsively delivering them is labor intensive and time consuming.

These are materials that its buyers ideally want to see up close, in detail. When customers have questions, they expect personal service.
