VOD Rules API

Release date: July 5th, 2017 (Revision 1), print this page

We have just extended our APIs to let systems integrated with Movida interact with VOD rules. This note describes this change in full, and as usual you can contact support or your Technical Account Manager for further clarification.

If you’re a broadcaster, you probably ❤️ VOD rules in Movida! VOD rules are what makes catch-up scheduling so efficient. With just a few clicks, a scheduler using the catch-up scheduling add-on in Movida can set VOD rules such as: “Show all episodes of Mad Men, Season 5, on my iOS service, immediately after the first transmission on my linear channel, and for 30-day catch-up.

At BeBanjo, we love machines almost as much as humans. If a scheduler can manage VOD rules in the Movida user interface, we thought there is no reason why an external system couldn’t do the same via our APIs. So we have extended our APIs, so that a system integrated with Movida can now Create, Read, Update or Delete VOD rules. The technical documentation describing how to do so is available online at http://docs.bebanjo.com/sections/movida-metadata-api/rule The usual REST conventions of our APIs apply, and you’ll notice that you can even assign an external-id to a VOD rule, to make it easy to track it across multiple systems.

Here is a new way to extend and customise Movida via the BeBanjo APIs. Don’t do anything too crazy with it!
