SWITCHcast API

The service provides video management for recorded lectures as part of courses at universities in Switzerland. Instructors can use the system to create videorecordings of lecturers and class presentations, which then are available to students of those classes. The service allows grouping of video content clips into channels for control of access by viewers.

API methods support separate producer and spectator functions. Spectators have read-only access to view video content made available to them. Producer functions give write access to add new content captured using a downloaded client and manage (update, delete) existing content. Producer methods allow designation of channels containing specified video clips, which allows spectator methods to list them for viewer access.
