This section of the documentation is for developers who want to add live or on demand video to their video application or workflow. There are many use cases for Livepeer and the community is excited to see what you build. If you get stuck introduce yourself in the #video-developers Discord channel and the community will be happy to assist.

Note: These docs are geared towards developers interested in building services and applications using the open and permissionless Livepeer Network directly. This requires self-hosting Catalyst and managing your own crypto wallet for payments.

If you prefer using a hosted gateway, check out Livepeer Studio, a video toolkit with API access to the Livepeer Network.
