ruby example using oauth gem:

gem 'oauth'
  require 'oauth/consumer'
  def delete_video(id)
	@consumer = '', '', { :site => '' } # Empty strings for Consumer Key and Consumer Secret
	    token = 'some_vzaar_login' # Replace with your vzaar login
	    secret = 'Gg6VLOZbJCARECba3TuBQSoQiMYBt8QgjslCLPUYiJg' # Paste the generated Valet Key 
	    @access_token =, token, secret)
	    @res = @access_token.delete("/videos/#{id}.xml") # Send the request, in this case using 'delete' method
