CMS API

In this sample, you will learn how to update metadata for multiple videos using the CMS Ingest API.

Introduction

The CMS API does not support updating multiple videos with a single request. However, you can iterate over a set of data to this, and this sample demonstrates this, using a sample Brightcove account. To get access tokens and make the API calls, it uses a proxy built by Brightcove Learning services.

Since the aim is just to show the logic, we will just update one bit of metadata for the videos: the description.
