Flix Cloud API Sample Python Library

Version: 0.2
Date: May 7, 2009

A sample Python client library for interacting with the On2 Flix Cloud API.

See http://flixcloud.com/api for more details about the API.

REGISTERING JOB REQUESTS

Create FlixCloud.Job object, set parameters and send the request using "send" method. If registartion is successful "send" method will return True (and set "success" attribute to True). If failure occurs, "success" will be set to False and in the "error" list you will find error messages.

API key is required and can be found in your Dashboard at https://flixcloud.com/settings
Recipe ID or Recipe NAME is required and can be found in your Dashboard at http://flixcloud.com/overviews/recipes
**For files (input, output, watermark) url is required. You can also set user & password if needed.

EXAMPLE 1

import FlixCloud

job_req = FlixCloud.Job('api_key') # API key required
job_req.recipe_id = 3   # Set recipe id or recipe name
job_req.set_input('http://example.com/file_in.mpg') # input file location
job_req.set_output('ftp://example.com/file_out.avi', 'user', 'password') # output file location (and user & password)
job_req.set_watermark('http://example.com/watermark.png') #watermark file location
job_req.send() # send request
if job_req.success: # registration successful
    print job_req.id # registered job id
    print job_req.initialized_job_at # registered job initialization time
else:   # registration failure
    for error in job_req.errors: # see errors
        print error

EXAMPLE 2 (params in python dictionary)

import FlixCloud

params =  {
    'recipe_name' : 'mpg2avi', # recipe name can be used instead of recipe id
    'input_url' : 'http://example.com/file_in.mpg',
    'output_url' : 'ftp://example.com/output.avi',
    'output_user' : 'ftp_user',
    'output_password' : 'ftp_pass',
    'watermark_url' : 'http:///watermark.png',
    'send' : True # if send param is set to True there is no need to run send method
}

job_req = FlixCloud.Job('api_key', params) # API key and params are given

if job_req.success: # registration successful
    print job_req.id # registered job id
    print job_req.initialized_job_at # registered job initialization time
else:   # registration failure
    for error in job_req.errors: # see errors
        print error

NOTIFICATIONS

The JobNotification class parses XML message sent from FlixCloud when a job is completed (or something went wrong).

Notification URL must be set in https://flixcloud.com/settings

EXAMPLE

import FlixCloud

notification = FlixCloud.JobNotification(xml_msg)

if notification.state == 'successful_job':
    print notification.id
    print notification.output_media_file.url
    print notification.output_media_file.cost

    print notification.input_media_file.url
    print notification.input_media_file.cost
    # etc.
elif notification.state == 'cancelled_job'
      # Action if job is cancelled
elif notification.state ==  'failed_job'
      print notification.error_message

Notes

Creating jobs sends HTTP requests to Flix Cloud, which may take some time. It's best to do this asynchronously in your application.
