Quick Start

Get started with the vzaar REST API in under 60 seconds!

  1. Navigate to your API Settings
  2. Click Generate API Token
  3. Make a note of the Client ID and Auth Token credentials
  4. Open a terminal and run the following command, inserting the credentials into the placeholders:
curl -X GET \
     -H "X-Client-Id: <client_id>" \
     -H "X-Auth-Token: <auth_token>" \
     "https://vzaar.com/api/v2/videos"
{
    "data": [
        {
            "id": 123,
            "title": "My Video",
            "description": "Video Description",
            "state": "ready",
            ...

HTTPS Required

vzaar's API only supports HTTPS (HTTP over TLS) — plain HTTP is not allowed and will receive a 426 Upgrade Required response.

For example, https://vzaar.com/api/v2/videos will work as described above but http://vzaar.com/api/v2/videos will be met with a client error.
