Achtung: Auf Grund rechtlicher Limitierungen müssen wir Videos mit einem bestehenden 3rd Party Claim auf YouTube in dieser API verstecken. Ansonsten können wir nicht dafür garantieren, dass die Videos für alle deine Webseiten-Besucher sichtbar sind.

Willkommen

Hier bekommen Sie stets die neuesten Videos in bester Qualität. Wir verarbeiten ausschließlich Material mit realer FullHD-Auflösung. Dabei verwenden wir keine bereits genutzen und runterskalierten Quellmedien, sondern die Original-File des jeweiligen Verleihers (vorzugsweise in ProRes, Stereo). Im Verarbeitungsprozess optimieren wir durch langjährige Erfahrungen in Bild- und Videobearbeitung sowie SEO die Videos so, dass sie sich perfekt in professionelle Umgebungen integrieren lassen.

Wir arbeiten weltweit mit über 100 Verleihern sowie vielen Presseagenturen zusammen und liefern aktuell über 900 exklusive Videos an unsere Abonnenten aus. Falls Sie also eine Quelle für EPK Material auf Ihrer Webseite oder App suchen, ist diese API die perfekte und kostenfreie Lösung für Sie. Folgen Sie den Instruktionen und Beispielen und erhalten Sie so die Video-ID unserer YouTube Uploads zum einfachen und automatisierten Einbetten.
