Retrieve video info

To retrieve information about any of your videos, use this code sample:

curl --request GET \
     --url \
     --header 'Accept: application/json' \
     --header 'Authorization: Bearer eyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGciOiJSUzI1NiJ9.eyJpYXQiOjE2NDI1NDk1NjAuMDE5ODA0LCJuYmYiOjE2NDI1NDk1NjAuMDE5ODA0LCJleHAiOjE2NDI1NTMxNjAuMDE5ODA0LCJwcm9qZWN0SWQiOiJwclJ6SUpKQTdCTHNxSGpTNDVLVnBCMSJ9.jjr4YADGbe62RmBBxJXLy1D61Mtfry_dq9nbriBXgkPrdlBJ8ZRP50CyW3AsGD7wSuKp2mXxEYSzj64zelT1IGOwg6KG4Gz9BZ9YWs0GAHKUIdgqn1gzITX5aQljIXx1fquXbawd-axBTi4icmaUjgXjfnyIcWOgHd2D8A3kpKiqiMmluh58JdnwPnH0OyVk0Rk824P0PI6SxfiTHfkCglPL6ixf9OgokMLPoVrsxH5C0xt3Z7lf5TJ0F78-JY-yTKvyaTTIfI6CFOMNaZUlMtgQwq8X93_2FA65Ntw3hdDML8gFKkLUxnBAtZMo9WAjUd30G4OcYasmlkc4Q_JSNw'

    res, err := client.Videos.Get(videoId)

    if err != nil {
        fmt.Fprintf(os.Stderr, "Error when calling `Videos.Get``: %v\n", err)
    // response from `Get`: Video

from apivideo.exceptions import ApiAuthException

video_id = "video ID for video you want info about here"

client = apivideo.AuthenticatedApiClient(api_key)

## If you'd rather use the sandbox environment:
## client = apivideo.AuthenticatedApiClient(api_key, production=False)


videos_api = VideosApi(client)

## Get details about a single video by video ID
response = videos_api.get(video_id)

Retrieve video info from your dashboard

If you don't want to retrieve video details programmatically, you can also view videos in your dashboard. To do that, do the following:

  1. Log in to your dashboard.

  2. From the menu on the left, choose Videos.

  3. Locate the video for which you want to view details. You can use the filtering options to help you find the one you want.

  4. Click Video Details to review all the information about the video.

It can be useful to retrieve a single video's details to determine if anything needs updating, or to collect key information like the video ID or mp4 link.
