JSON REST API – version 2 – Videos

Videos are a blanket term for solid media files and stream sources. Connect’s version 2 API provides a single endpoint to Client callers to retrieve information on playable media and streams published to the Client Application.

Note: The version 2 API does not authenticate using a Connect user’s username and password using HTTP BASIC AUTH. Instead you create a client application using Connect’s web user interface. The client application is issued an ACCESS KEY and SECRET PASSPHRASE. These values must be passed in custom header values on every request.

URLs

Examples

Using your favorite HTTP tool or library, make a GET request to https://connect.telvue.com/api/v2/videos and include Access Key and Secret Passphrase for the Client Application from which you are making the request.

cURL

The popular cURL tool comes bundled with any Linux, Mac, or UNIX operating system, and there are Windows equivalents.
