The Media API is a RESTful API that allows you to interact with your Video Cloud media library, using any programming language you choose, and working from the server or client side. There are both Read methods, which allow you to perform complex searches for videos or playlists, and Write methods, which allow you to add, update, and delete video and playlist assets, among other things.
If you are new to this API, you will probably want to start with the Getting Started guide. Next, you should look at the guide to using
search_videos, the most powerful and flexible of the video Read methods.
Once you master the basics, find more details on the methods and data objects in the API Reference. There are also basic working samples of all of the Media API methods, and a solution for creating a custom related videos display using
search_videos and the Smart Player API.
