Media API Sample: find_video_by_reference_id
This example uses the
find_video_by_reference_id() READ method, which allows you to retrieve data for a video, even if it is inactive, unscheduled, or deleted.
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.

Video fields to return:
