Building a Client for OS X

The Amazon AppStream SDK provides client libraries that you build into your client to receive and decode video and audio from the application and send device inputs and raw inputs to the application.

The following object classes are provided by the client libraries in the Amazon AppStream SDK.

Class Description
XStxClientLibrary The top level object of the client libraries. Your client uses this object to ensure that it is calling into the version of the libraries it was compiled against and to create the XStxClient object.
XStxClient This object manages client sessions and sends events to your application when Amazon AppStream assigns your application a client session or terminates a client session.

Your client implements and populates the following structures in order to receive session and application events.

Interface Description
XStxIClientListener Receives callbacks from a client.
XStxIVideoDecoder Receives and decodes the video frame.
XStxIVideoRenderer Renders the video frame.
