General usage

Generic video upload

Generic video uploads are granted through account-level token access. Unlike other video uploads, generic video uploads do not associate with a video experience and are not linked to ChipBot.

Generic video uploads grant customers access to ChipBot’s Video APIs for their own purposes outside ChipBot. For pricing on usage and storage, please email support@getchipbot.com.

Authorization type: Account

Request Flow

There are three steps to uploading a video.

  1. Requesting a video service token. This tells us you’re authorized to use the ChipBot video service.
  2. Requesting a video upload token. This creates a job based on your specifications and returns a token.
  3. Uploading the video. Using the upload token from step 2, you can send a multi-part file straight to your utility API servers.
