The /videos API class contains calls for creating (uploading) videos, searching for videos, editing video metadata (title, description, tags etc.) and deleting videos.
Videos and conversions¶
In Bits on the Run, a video object does not reference to the actual files that are located on our servers. It is the metadata container that actually contains multiple video files (conversions). To search for and manage these individual video files, use the /videos/conversions class.
Access to individual conversions is not needed to embed videos on websites or offer download links of videos. As our Content URL scheme demonstrates, only the overall key of a video is needed to generate embed codes or video download links.
Under water, our video players will use bitrate switching to serve the most suitable video conversions to each viewer.
