VOD DOWNLOADS

VOD Downloads are a feature within the VIS where download clips can be made against an Event, processed via a Vuflow, and sent to the given email address.

The actions here allow you to create downloads, fetch the details, and retry them.

Additionally supported is the option to specify an EmailLanguage, which will use a different email template (if available) to send an appropriate language email to the end user.

Supported Actions

POST /voddownload/

Create a new VOD Download.

Request Body:

{
  "EmailAddress": "email-address@domain.com",
  "ContentId": "your-content-id-here",
  "FrameAccurate": false,
  "EmailLanguage": null,
  "Mp4Filename": "my-mp4-name.mp4",
  "DownloadClips": {}
}

Notes: if you do not provide a content Id, one will be generated for you.

Download Clips:

The download system supports multiple clips which can be stitched together. It is recommended to using the filter property to ensure that each clip has the same number of tracks and the same bitrates, else the stitching is likely to fail.

Below is a single clip:

{
  "EventId": "98f70502-d120-4ee6-991e-7dd67eefe699",
  "Start": "2018-10-10T14:30:31.081Z",
  "End": "2018-10-10T16:30:20.361Z",
  "Filter": "",
  "IsMasterClip": false
}

You can set the Start and End to null to request the entire Event. You should use an elapsed time format (00:00:00 -> duration) if the content does not have timestamps.

You can use the Filter to insert USP filter options.

You will want to specify IsMasterClip as true only 1 clip, and for the one which the download should be associated with. If left as False, the download will be valid, but metadata will be harder to match up. In the case that you do specify a master clip, but not an Mp4Filename, then the filename will be based off of the master clip Event’s Title.
