Step One in implementing IVA videos is to get the data you need by locating the Published ID's for each title that you want. Getting the data you need is easy. We recommend using IVA's OData API which is available to all subscribers. If you already have a data service, you should start by reading about Data Matching. Rovi subscribers should click here.
OData API 1.0
This is our cloud based web service API which offers robust queries that are intuitive and easy to use. (You may want to review what's included for each level of subscription by visiting the services page. ) The IVA OData API 1.0 documentation includes instructions on how to access our database for Published IDs. You will also learn how to make queries for information such as content description, director, performers, video assets, related video's and more. We've included some example queries and a data dictionary to provide a good idea of what information is available. The IVA OData API 1.0 has rapidly become popular because it provides data not available in our legacy Data API 2.0.
Data API 2.0 (Legacy)
This is our older data API for which updates are no longer being made. Existing customers who are still using this API and need access to documentation please contact us through our support email.
Once you have the data you are looking for, the next steps are getting the video and embedding it in your player. Paid subscribers have the option of making a player inside Media Manager and then passing our Published ID's to that player; or for those using their own player,using our Video API to generate links directly to the content. If you are using IVA's Free Trailer API you use the Published ID's to play videos in our free ad supported player.
