video API?

Is there an API for doing video calls? I searched but didn't find anything. I see API calls for scheduling RingCentral Meetings but not for doing the actual video feed or GLIP video chat.

Hi Steve,

You are very close for looking at the meeting APIs. You can use the schedule or create meeting API with these query params:
"allowJoinBeforeHost": true,  "startHostVideo": true,   "startParticipantsVideo": true,
Please see the API reference for more details.  https://developer.ringcentral.com/api-docs/latest/index.html#!#RefMeetingCreation

I'm looking for the video feed itself, along with the audio feed that would go with it.   This would be for a kiosk that would have the ability to start an on demand video session with customer service staff.
The kiosk would be located at a customer site and the our staff would be at our offices.
