Platform API
Getting started


The Platform API enables you to access info about videos, users, playlists, etc., manage your Player and embed it on your own website or application. At a high level, the range of available API calls covers virtually all facets of Dailymotion.

Public info are available with no specific authentication while private info and account operations are available depending on the authenticated status and permissions granted.

API Keys & Endpoints

The Platform API is accessible with both public and private API keys.
If you don’t know which API key you should use, find more details in the FAQ.

The endpoint will be different depending on the type of API key used:

Public API key
Private API key

Objects and schema of the Platform API Reference are compatible with both endpoints.


Check the authentication guides to access the API.
