Table of contents

Project description

api.video's PHP API client streamlines the coding process. Chunking files is handled for you, as is pagination and refreshing your tokens.

Getting started

Installation

composer require api-video/php-api-client

Initialization

Due to PHP PSR support, you must initialize the client with 3 to 5 arguments:

  1. Base URI, which can be either https://sandbox.api.video or https://ws.api.video
  2. Your API key, available on your account
  3. HTTP client
  4. (Request factory)
  5. (Stream factory)

Note : If the HTTP client also implements RequestFactoryInterface and StreamFactoryInterface, then it is not necessary to pass this object in 4th and 5th argument.

Symfony HTTP client example

The Symfony HTTP client has the triple advantage of playing the role of HTTP client, but also of request factory and stream factory. It is therefore sufficient to pass it as an argument 3 times.

If the HTTP client isn't yet in your project, you can add it with:

composer require symfony/http-client
composer require nyholm/psr7

Code sample

Client initialization

<?php
require __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php';

$httpClient = new \Symfony\Component\HttpClient\Psr18Client();
$client = new \ApiVideo\Client\Client(
    'https://sandbox.api.video',
    'YOUR_API_TOKEN',
    $httpClient
);
?>

Create a video

$payload = (new VideoCreationPayload())
    ->setTitle('Test video creation');

// the `$client` must already be initialized.
$video = $client->videos()->create($payload);

Upload a video

$payload = (new VideoCreationPayload())
    ->setTitle('Test video creation');

$video = $client->videos()->create($payload);

// the `$client` must already be initialized.
$client->videos()->upload(
    $video->getVideoId(),
    new SplFileObject(__DIR__.'/../earth.mp4')
);

Models

Authentication

Some endpoints don't require authentication. These one can be called with a Client instantiated with a null API token:

<?php
require __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php';

$httpClient = new \Symfony\Component\HttpClient\Psr18Client();
$client = new \ApiVideo\Client\Client(
    'https://sandbox.api.video',
    null,
    $httpClient
);
?>

Chunks

The video is automatically split into 50 Mb chunks.

To modify the size of the chunks, fill in the last argument $contentRange as follows:

  • bytes 0-{size}/0 where {size} is the size of the chunk.

For example : bytes 0-500000/0 for 500 Kb chunks.

The chunks size value must be between 5 Mb and 128mb.

Tests

In order to run the PhpUnit tests, it is necessary to enter two variables in the command line:

  • BASE_URI (for example : https://sandbox.api.video)
  • API_KEY

These identifiers must belong to a real Api.video account.

$ BASE_URI="" API_KEY="..." vendor/bin/phpunit
