NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today Dailymotion announced the opening of its Application Programming Interface (API) to the public. Developers will be able to eventually access all of Dailymotion’s core functions (upload, playlists, channels etc) through the API and will be able to integrate Dailymotion modules into any site or application (iPhone, iPad, Android, Bada, Windows Phone 7 etc). The Dailymotion API has been specially designed to be as easy to use as possible; in particular, thanks to the development kits (SDK) provided, a developer can create apps that range from video uploading apps to channel specific apps or interactive apps that make use of Dailymotion video content and sharing capabilities. The full range of Dailymotion functions will be integrated into this API as they go along.
The Dailymotion API uses the OAuth 2.0 standard protocol as an authentication and permission system to give the site/third party application the option to interact with Dailymotion on behalf of its common users.
All the literature on the Dailymotion API is available at the following address: http://www.dailymotion.com/doc/api
Dailymotion also offers developers the chance to promote the best ways of using the API. To submit an application, just send an email to email@example.com.
