  • NPM >=6.x.x

In our minimum support we're following official Node.js releases timelines.

Supported Strapi versions:

This plugin is designed for Strapi v4 and is not working with v3.x.

We recommend always using the latest version of Strapi to start your new projects.

🔧 Configuration

In order for this plugin to communicate with api.video, a configuration needs to be set for the plugin before it can be used.

With your Api Key, navigate to the Settings view within Strapi and click the "General" section under API.VIDEO UPLOADER.

On this view, enter your Api Key and click the Save button.

Plugin configuration

To resolve Content Security Policy directive issue and to visualize the thumbnail and the video, we need to configure external ressource like embed.api.videoand cdn.api.video/vod/. Modify the middlewares.js file like below:

// config/middlewares.js
module.exports = ({ env }) => [
        name: 'strapi::security',
        config: {
            contentSecurityPolicy: {
                useDefaults: true,
                directives: {
                    'connect-src': ["'self'", 'https:'],
                    'img-src': ["'self'", 'data:', 'blob:', 'embed.api.video', 'cdn.api.video/vod/'],
                    'frame-src': ["'self'", 'data:', 'blob:', 'embed.api.video'],
                    upgradeInsecureRequests: null,

👤 Permissions
