Media API Sample: find_playlists_for_player_id

This example uses the find_playlists_for_player_id() READ method, which allows you to retrieve data for the playlists assigned to a particular player.

All READ method samples are made using the JavaScript MAPI wrapper.

Note: making this call from the client side exposes your read token, which could allow a developer to access all video data from your account. If you use the READ token with URL access, that developer could even download copies of all your video files. Brightcove recommends making all Media API calls from a server-side application if possible.
