Quick Start

Good to know: A quick start guide can be good to help folks get up and running with your API in a few steps. Some people prefer diving in with the basics rather than meticulously reading every page of documentation!

Get your API keys

Your API requests are authenticated using API keys. Any request that doesn't include an API key will return an error.

You can generate an API key from your Dashboard at any time.

The option to generate API keys is provided under "Videos" => "Global Settings" => API Keys.

API Authentication

The best way to authenticate using our API is to use Bearer authentication. You will need to send a Authorization header in all of your API requests. The value of the Authorization header should be in this format Bearer[space-character]API_Key

Please note that the API key does not expire. The key should be used on the server-end and not on the client-end. If the API key gets compromised, you can delete it from the dashboard and generate a new one.

//Following header should be sent in each HTTP request to our API.

Authorization: Bearer APIKEY_HERE

Make your first request

To make your first request, send an authenticated request to the videos endpoint. This will list your videos.

GET https://api.dyntube.com/v1/videos

This request will send you a video list in JSON format.

Postman Collection

If you use the Postman tool to test the APIs, you can get started quickly by downloading our collection that you can import into Postman.
