Using the API, developers can build applications that let other users upload to their own account. For example, building a website where creators upload their videos to a single film festival account, or building a mobile app where field workers upload to a single business account.
Understand that the destination of the upload depends on the token used to authenticate API requests. To upload to your account, the first API request that initiates the upload workflow must be made with a token authenticated to your account. That token can be created in a number of ways, such as generating a Personal Access Token on the Developer Site, or by way of the OAuth workflow.
As always, users should compress their videos according to our Compression Guidelines. All uploads are subject to our Content Guidelines and Terms of Service.
