What is API file access?

Through the API, it’s possible to retrieve direct URLs to your video files. You could use these URLs to download your videos, use a third-party player, or any number of use cases.

Why enable API file access?

By default, the direct links to your videos files are protected to prevent access without our video player. This protects your source files from unwanted downloads. If you need to access the direct video files for use outside of our player, you'll need to enable API file access.

Once enabled, anyone with access to the video URL will have unrestricted access to that source file.
