Audio and Video APIs for the Complete Media Lifecycle
uStudio’s audio and video APIs were designed to maximize integration potential and give developers an easy way to put media inside of any application. Media capabilities are exposed via simple REST APIs, so you can automate or customize any or all of the media lifecycle from upload to transcoding, management, distribution, interactive playback, and measurement. Every audio and video file within uStudio makes use of our APIs – every single day.
Application Management APIs
uStudio’s APIs for studios, accounts, set-up and configurations provide everything you need to manage your total media ecosystem. Get started quickly, make changes easily, and configure precisely to your organization’s desired workflow.
User Management APIs
uStudio’s flexible access controls support internal, external, and mixed-audience viewership. uStudio is compatible with a variety of privacy and authentication protocols for your named users including SAML, OpenID, and OAuth, and can adapt to the access controls in your native enterprise systems, so you can decide who can access what, where.
Media Management APIs
Our media management APIs provide the maximum in flexibility and options for audio and video uploading, organization, transcoding, metadata management, searching, sorting and packaging. Additional frameworks, such as our custom metadata framework, are available for even deeper customization.
Because we separate the management of the audio or video file from the player and the destination, our APIs let you put media literally anywhere. Use our destination APIs for pushing interactive video to third party websites like Facebook or Twitter, OTT channels like Roku, or business applications like Salesforce. Wherever your video belongs, our Destination APIs can get it there.
Data Management APIs
We don’t give you a subset of your data, we give you the superset. Basic and named user viewing data, stats by destination and device, interactive and social data, as well as technical performance and ROI numbers. Analytics APIs let you pull raw audio and video data into the reporting tool of your choice.
Expose and manipulate your entire media library directly inside any business system including popular CRM, CMS, LMS or Analytics applications or systems. Choose from 40+ common integrations or simply build your own.

uStudio definitely meets our standards as far as high quality goes with its video APIs. It delivers great technology and response times. But beyond that, I feel like they are also an innovator in the space.
