List of Online Video Platform APIs

As most of you know, an online video platform provides companies with video hosting and delivery services among various other features and functionality that can vary (analytics, ad networks, HD support, etc…).  Many of these online video platforms (and there are just too many right now in my opinion but that is another post entirely) offer an API (Application Programming Interface.) An API exposes the features and functions of a platform thus enabling others to seamlessly integrate core video functionality within their own applications.

Below is a list of Online video platform APIs along with some information as to pricing. If you have any questions or updates, please leave them in the comments field below.
