API Docs

Using the API, developers can build any functionality of the JW Platform into their own website or service. The API features a straightforward authentication mechanism and multiple output formats (PHP, JSON, XML, Python). The available methods are grouped into classes (videos, channels, players, accounts) and the available content can be requested through a standard URL scheme. This reference describes in detail how our API works and which classes and assets are available.
