The service provides lookup access to an extensive database of video and media content available in varying formats and from different suppliers. Video resource listings are categorized by genre and other content categories and provider along with more technical criteria like file format, image size and quality, and access location.
API methods support access to the record for a specific video by unique identifier or to listings by format, genre, decade, recently added or new, and other filtering criteria. Methods also allow search against the database for a character string specified in the request. Methods return descriptions of matching videos with still image, provider, and access URL.
The Open Spreety API sticks a TV and a TV guide in your program. According to the API webpage, you can have users search for shows by title, genre, and by the decade the show was produced, among other criteria. Despite all the pay walls and cable costs, Open Spreety says there is so much free content out there from the mainstream media that viewers can get lost in the forest of choices.
