About

This project provides a starting point for integrating the Brightcove Media API into your application. It provides simple ways to interact with the API.

Compatibility Notice

Please note that the JavaScript MAPI Wrapper v1.0+ is not compatible with any previous versions (when it was known as "Kudos"). The class name has been changed, numerous functions have been re-named, and methods have been updated to take advantage of Brightcove API changes.

If you need assistance in determining what changes have been made, please send an e-mail to opensource@brightcove.com with your request.

Basic Usage

A basic example containing a query for all videos in an account.

<script src="bc-mapi.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
	// Make a call to the API requesting content
	// Note that a callback function is needed to handle the returned data
	BCMAPI.find("find_all_videos", { "callback" : "handle" });
	
	// Our callback loops through the returned videos, alerting their names
	function handle (pResponse) {
		for (var pVideo in pResponse.items) {
			alert(pVideo.name);
		}
	}
</script>

Advanced Usage

An advanced example containing a query for all videos in an account as well as instantiation options.

<script src="bc-mapi.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
	// Set the default token and handler for calls
	BCMAPI.token = "TOKEN.GOES.HERE";
	BCMAPI.callback = "MyClass.myMethod";
	
	// Our call response will now be sent to MyClass.method
	BCMAPI.find("find_all_videos");
	
	// With a token and callback function set, we can use find()'s params as a selector
	BCMAPI.find("find_video_by_id", 1234567890);
	
	// You can also omit "find" from all API commands for efficiency
	BCMAPI.find("video_by_id", 1234567890);
</script>

Search Videos Usage

An example containing a search_videos call with multiple search terms.

<script src="bc-mapi.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
	// Set the default token and handler for calls
	BCMAPI.token = "TOKEN.GOES.HERE";
	BCMAPI.callback = "MyClass.myMethod";
	// Set params
	var params = {};
	params.any = ["tag:sea","tag:fish"];
	
	// Our call response will now be sent to MyClass.method
	BCMAPI.search(params);
</script>
