Vid.ly is a cloud-based video hosting service that, in addition to basic hosting services, is designed to optimize video playback for different devices and systems. Once a user provides source video, Vid.ly will host the content on their server, and convert the source video into 22 output renditions. When an end-user requests the video, Vid.ly detects the device and operating system they are using, and delivers the video best optimized for the playback environment.
The Vid.ly API operates over HTTP POST using XML, and offers methods for uploading, updating, and deleting videos. This web service also exposes functionality for gathering video playback statistics. Furthermore, users can manipulate the format parameters when uploading or updating videos to create custom video renditions based on their anticipated user needs.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
