Get Started with the JW Platform APIs

If you have a JW Player account, you have JW Platform, which comes with programmatic access through our APIs.

The Delivery API provides bundled responses optimized to quickly serve content to your site or application. This highly available and scalable API includes single-line player embeds, feeds, and access to specific media assets.

The Management API offers a secure, RESTful interface for publishers to programmatically manage their library, upload videos, update metadata, and configure players, feeds, and ad schedules.
