I have a note out to the support@ email to check and see if there’s any way for new people to get access to the cloud to use it as a WebRTC signaling server.


#4

Confirmation email from RICOH on ending RICOH Cloud API access. It does mention a “future cloud API offering,” so maybe there’s something in the works. I have no other info than this email.

Has there been any response from Ricoh?

Audrey,

What response are you looking for from RICOH? Are you asking about a cloud API offering from RICOH?

I think the question might be if the Cloud API is back online. The person might want to use this example, which requires the Ricoh Cloud server for BOSH/AUTH

That was over a year and a half ago.

There’s also this interesting example up now. Do you have time to sign up for their service and try it?

@jcasman can you contact the people you spoke to from the api.ricoh group and ask them if the

Peer-to-Peer Communication example explained in this document works with the Ricoh THETA V and Ricoh THETA S?
From the web site, it appears that it does.


#8

I asked a guy I know at Ricoh. He mentioned that the Live Streaming API and the Peer-to-Peer Communication API were both tested with the THETA S. He indicated that both APIs should work with the THETA V.

I think it would be worthwhile to sign up for the service and download the sample code.

Hi everyone! Sorry for the late response, but I was talking about the Ricoh Cloud API. I originally thought that they do not provide this service anymore, but I was mistaken. Sorry again for the late reply.


#10

I think that you’re right. I believe they recently announced this for the US market.

It was in beta earlier. It’s now open for public use.

If you have a moment, let us know what type of project you’re building with the Ricoh Cloud API. I haven’t used it in a while, but was planning to take another look at it to use with the THETA V Plug-in API.

Yeah sure! So I was originally going to use it to build a video-chat application similar to the one on git-hub, because I needed wireless live streaming. But I later realized that what I needed to build was something using a bridge. So I’m currently looking into .getLivePreview and seeing where that leads me.
