Channels are essentially playlists of videos. These playlist can be published inside a player or published as RSS feeds. Use these calls to create new channels, search for channels, manage the channel properties (title, description etc.) and delete channels.
Manual and dynamic¶
There are two types of channels: manual and dynamic ones. The type is selected upon creation. It cannot be changed afterwards.
- Manual channels are updated by hand. Using the /channels/videos API calls, videos should be added to, positioned in and removed from a channel.
- Dynamic channels are automatically kept up to date by the system. They are compiled based upon certain rules (e.g. all videos that are tagged with soccer, ordered by date). These rules are part of the properties of dynamic channels.
