Dynamic Ingest API

In this sample, you will learn how to retranscode multiple videos using the Dynamic Ingest API.

Overview

The Dynamic Ingest API call is exactly the same as it would be for ingesting new videos - the only difference is that you do not need to make a prior call to the CMS API to create the video object in the Video Cloud system and get an id for it, and the request body is slightly different. All videos will remain playable with existing renditions until retranscoding is complete.

Getting Credentials

To get a client_id and client_secret , you will need to go to the OAuth UI and register this app:

These are the permissions you will need:

You can also get your credentials via CURL or Postman - see:

If you are getting credentials directly from the API, these are the permissions you need:

[
"video-cloud/video/all",
"video-cloud/ingest-profiles/profile/read",
"video-cloud/ingest-profiles/account/read",
"video-cloud/upload-urls/read"
]
