ReelSurfer is a service that lets users clip and share any video from any website. In order to clip a video, users can use a bookmarklet or go to the ReelSurfer site and enter the URL of the video. Clips can be combined and organized into reels that can then be shared with friends. The ReelSurfer API provides programmatic access to the service's functionality. Currently users can use the API to create new clips. The API uses XML-RPC calls and responses are formatted in XML.
Of the many APIs we published this week, ten were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those ten, which included the Science.gov API. The Science.gov API allows mobile search and connection to 12 federal agencies, including NASA, the FDA and the Environmental Protection Agency, with data going back to 1990. In a nutshell, government data is publicly available in accessible data sets. To learn more about the Science.gov API visit the Science.gov API site as well as the Science.gov blog post.
ReelSurfer has been capitalizing on our short attention spans when it comes to watching online videos. ReelSurfer is an application that lets anyone clip and share any video from any website. Users can then compile and organize clips into a larger "Reel." Earlier this week, ReelSurfer announced the beta ReelSurfer API that allows users to embed video clips into any website or app. Developers can now add applicable video clips to their apps and websites without the hassle of editing out video irrelevant to their content.
