Where Do I Start?

General Knowledge

An API (or Application Programming Interface) allows one application to communicate with another. Sharing information about the data it holds and offering functionality for receiving new information.

Dacast's API allows users to create new videos, live streams, and playlists; uploading new content and retrieving details about what's already in their accounts.

Using it you can allow your end-users to add content directly to your Dacast account.
Alternatively, every video you upload could be automatically integrated into your existing web pages. These are just two examples. Basically, if you can imagine an integration, our API can help you build it.

Let's navigate through the following sections to make your first API call and explore the main use-cases you should find useful.
