Dailymotion is one of the biggest video platforms in the world, and as such, we offer video storage and viewing capability to our users. We would like to make it easy for you developers to integrate video creation and delivery across many platforms (desktop, mobile, consoles, set-top boxes and more).
The Dailymotion API allows developers to access and integrate Dailymotion's functionality and content. Some example API methods include uploading, sharing, and playing content, view, create, and edit data about video content, and embedding the Dailymotion player into other sites.
In our series on video APIs we have focused on the YouTube API, but YouTube is not the only video service in town. Dailymotion is a French social video site that is especially popular in countries where YouTube has been censored. In this post we provide a step-by-step guide to using the video subset of the service's API.
When Facebook announced its timeline partners yesterday, there were many familiar names on the list. Some were especially familiar to us because, in addition to now adding their "actions" to Facebook, they also provide APIs to access data created by their users.
