How to fetch ooyala image?

I've been looking around the web all day long but I'm not able to find a way to get the URL for a video image that's hosted on Ooyala. I read that the URL's vary from video to video, but I wonder if there isn't ANY way to get the image from the embed code.

In case you're wondering, I'm not uploading the vids to Ooyala myself, I'm simply running a site that embeds some Ooyala vids (as well as videos from other sites). Does anyone have a solution, or is there simply no way for me to get a preview image?

Hi Nawauzdinshah,

 

You can use the Backlot REST API to get the information on the videos. However, in order to do so, you need to have Ooyala API credentials. This is only available if you have the Backlot account, or this information has been shared to you by your team. 

 

Here is the syntax to retrieve thumbnail image information:

/v2/assets/{asset_id}/preview_image_files

 

Note: asset_id is the embed code of the video.

 

You can refer to the following documents for details:

1. Documentation on the use of Backlot REST API: https://help.ooyala.com/video-platform/concepts/chapter_api_setup.html

2. API reference: https://apidocs.ooyala.com/backlot_api/index.html#v2_assets

 

I hope this helps.

 

Regards,

Clara

Convenience method for finding details on all existing labels, as well as creating any labels that do not yet exist. Returns an array of label details. This method is recommended for use above the others, as it provides consistent results with minimal app logic. The caveat in this method is that it uses the getLabels method described above, if this proves to be a performance issue, then the logic here will be optimized.
