The Ooyala Usage API tracks the data and statistics of Ooyala user accounts. Its integration allows users to retrieve video statistics – such as the volume of player bytes, streams and playbacks – of their Ooyala account activities. A user must use an API key to authenticate the API. Each API key offers a per-minute limit of a maximum of 100 requests. User seeking to exceed the request limit must manually throttle additional requests. The API sends HTTP-formatted requests and returns JSON-formatted responses.
