Description

Brightcove is one of the original VOD (video-on-demand) platform providers. They operate at enterprise scale and partner with broadcasters and other big brands to deliver on-demand and live video. It is a reliable and powerful video hosting platform that provides the following features:

  • Live streaming of events and a catalog of videos to present to users
  • Creating your own TV channel with a player optimized for HTML5
  • Deliver detailed, high-level data and analytics to drive your video marketing efforts
  • Brand the video content you create on OTT apps, websites, social media, and any other channel you need with an API tool for even more customization
  • Integrate with other tools to monetize your content
  • Digital rights management (DRM) and other similar controls
  • Cloud-based transcoding to get your content to the right devices without extra processes at your end

Authentication

The Auth Node can be used to authenticate with most of the Brightcove nodes. It generates a Bearer token which can be used in the API requests.

The OAuth and Playback Node work differently. OAuth can also be used to retrieve a Bearer token. Playback requires a policy key generated with the Policy Node. An example using both special cases is provided in Brightcove Playback Flow Example.

Some Nodes might require additional permissions. Those can be added to the clients you want to use. More information is available at the OAuth2 Documentation.

You can use the `limit` and `offset` parameters to control how many (up to 1000) and which videos are returned for a request**

Get Videos

Gets a page of video objects. The Playback API allows you to programmatically search for videos in your Video Cloud library. For more information on the search syntax, see [CMS/Playback API: Videos Search](/cms/searching/cmsplayback-api-videos-search.html). Notes: When performing a search, you need to use a search-enabled Policy Key. For information on getting policy keys, see the Policy API Overview or the Policy Keys documents. In general, search-enabled Policy Keys should only be stored on a server and not in a browser player or mobile app, since they can be used to list all playable videos. For some accounts this may not be applicable if you do not care if all of your playable videos can be discovered. The maximum number of videos (highest count value) returned is 1000, even if there are more matching videos in the account. The count value is an estimate and should not be relied on as the exact number to be returned. If all results are desired then keep paging until it no longer returns a full page, or use the CMS api. Only currently playable videos are included in the results list. It is recommended to do a similar query with the CMS api to see why some videos are excluded. Any geo-restricted videos that are denied for the particular requestor are omitted from the results. As long as some videos are allowed the request is considered successful. An errors field is added to the result with a summary explaining why videos were omitted.

Using the name and short description of the specified video, the Playback API searches for videos with any partial matches in the following fields: `name`, `short` `description`, `long_description`, `tags`. Notes: When performing a search (using the `q` parameter), you must use a search-enabled Policy Key. For information on getting policy keys, see the [Policy API Overview](/policy/getting-started/overview-policy-api.html). You can also use this [sample app](/policy/getting-started/quick-start-policy-api.html) to create a search-enabled key In general, search-enabled Policy Keys should only be stored on a server and not in a browser player or mobile app, since they can be used to list all playable videos. For some accounts this may not be applicable if you do not care if all of your playable videos can be discovered. The response results for this endpoint are subject to change as we improve the algorithm for finding related videos. If you do not want your results to change, or if you want precise control, then you should use the [Get Videos endpoint](#operation/Get_Videos) with a search parameter. Any geo-restricted videos that are denied for the particular requestor are omitted from the results. As long as some videos are allowed the request is considered successful. An errors field is added to the result with a summary explaining why videos were omitted.

Retrieve the configuration for a parent/child combination of master and preview branches. If you are using the second query parameter (and hence using the ampersand [&]), you MUST use quotes around the endpoint or the curl statement will fail at the ampersand. For example: `"https://players.api.brightcove.com/v1/accounts/{account_id}/players/{player_id}/embeds/{embed_id}/configuration/merged?playerBranch=preview&embedBranch=master"`. Using this endpoint provides a way to view what the resulting configuration would be when combining different combinations of parent and child (also called embed) versions of players. Using this endpoint does not change any configurations, it is only useful for seeing results of merging changes to configurations.

Create a player

Create a player. The POST method creates a player by submitting a player configuration. The properties of Brightcove Player you can manipulate with player management are detailed in the **Request Body Fields** section below. To create a player, a publisher must decide what properties the final player will have. If no properties are given at creation, a blank player will be created with only the base player skin applied to the player. A user may then use an HTTP PATCH method to update properties after the player has been created.

Get a single player

Get a player by ID

Update a player by ID

Update a single player. The PATCH method can be used on a single player to do a VERY limited update. The only fields you can update in this manner are the `name` and `description` properties. All other player configuration must be done via the **PLAYER CONFIGURATIONS** APIs, detailed below.

Create an embed

Create an embed (child player) for a player. Note that the initial creation of the embed is automatically published. Any changes to the embed thereafter will need to be published. When creating the embed, the body must be an object representing configuration settings for the new embed. By default when you create an embed, data in the embed overrides like data that would otherwise be inherited from the common player. This situation is different for fields that contain arrays. When the data type of the field is an array, you can choose the inheritance behavior to be overwrite, prepend or append. The fields whose data type is an array, and for which you can control inheritance behavior are: scripts, stylesheets, plugins, sources. You can add special field names to the configuration object to control array inheritance, and change the default behavior of embeds overriding common player data. If a array field in an embed's configuration has a child item called array_prepend or array_append the data will be correspondingly prepended or appended to the common player's data for the like field. See the Array fields section of the Embeds Guide for a complete discussion.

Update embed configuration

Update the configuration for an embed. Note that you will need to publish the altered embed for optimization and production use. You can also use a `PUT` HTTP method instead of the `PATCH` shown here. When using `PUT` it replaces all embed configuration information, so you must supply all embed configuration information when using `PUT`. In contrast, `PATCH` appends or modifies existing configuration information. Using `PUT` is such rare use case it is not detailed in this reference.
