Project description's Swift video uploader for iOS, macOS and tvOS uploads videos to using delegated upload token or API Key.

It allows you to upload videos in two ways:

  • standard upload: to send a whole video file in one go
  • progressive upload: to send a video file by chunks, without needing to know the final size of the video file

Getting started



Specify it in your Cartfile:

github "apivideo/" ~> 1.2.3

Run carthage update


Add pod 'ApiVideoUploader', '1.2.3' in your Podfile

Run pod install

Code sample

Please follow the installation instruction and execute the following Swift code:

import ApiVideoUploader

// If you rather like to use the sandbox environment:
// ApiVideoUploader.basePath = Environment.sandbox.rawValue

try VideosAPI.uploadWithUploadToken(token: "MY_UPLOAD_TOKEN", file: url) { video, error in
    if let video = video {
        // Manage upload with upload token success here
    if let error = error {
        // Manage upload with upload token error here


API Endpoints

All URIs are relative to


Retrieve an instance of VideosAPI:
Method HTTP request Description
upload POST /videos/{videoId}/source Upload a video
uploadWithUploadToken POST /upload Upload with an delegated upload token


Rate limiting implements rate limiting to ensure fair usage and stability of the service. The API provides the rate limit values in the response headers for any API requests you make. The /auth endpoint is the only route without rate limitation.

In this client, you can access these headers by using the methods with the completion: @escaping (_ result: Swift.Result<Response<T>, ErrorResponse>) -> Void) parameters. These methods return both the response body and the headers, allowing you to check the X-RateLimit-Limit, X-RateLimit-Remaining, and X-RateLimit-Retry-After headers to understand your current rate limit status. Read more about these response headers in the API reference.

try VideosAPI.uploadWithUploadToken(token: "MY_UPLOAD_TOKEN", file: url) { result in
    switch result {
    case .success(let response):
        print("X-RateLimit-Limit:  \(String(describing: response.header["X-RateLimit-Limit"]))")
        print("X-RateLimit-Remaining:  \(String(describing: response.header["X-RateLimit-Remaining"]))")
        print("X-RateLimit-Retry-After:  \(String(describing: response.header["X-RateLimit-Retry-After"]))")
    case .failure(_):


API key

Most endpoints required to be authenticated using the API key mechanism described in our documentation.

You must NOT store your API key in your application code to prevent your API key from being exposed in your source code. Only the Public endpoints can be called without authentication. In the case, you want to call an endpoint that requires authentication, you will have to use a backend server. See Security best practices for more details.

Public endpoints

Some endpoints don't require authentication. These one can be called without setting ApiVideoUploader.apiKey.
