Bulk Select or Delete From Object List

Redactor API Customers New User Permissions

Redactor API developers can now specify one or more Redactor users who should be given access to imported videos via a new “acl” property in the request body. This will allow the assigned users to see the video in their Redactor UI and offers new opportunities for integrating with 3rd party applications.

As an example, the following request body could be used to import a video into Redactor and assign it to the Redactor username “chip”. 


   "acl": ["chip"],

   "inputUri": "https://path/to/video.mp4",

   "outputUri": "file:///storage/path/",

   "features": ["MEDIA_PREPARE"]
