SRGSSR Archives 1.0.5

What is it?

This API provides the archive metadata (audio and image) from all SRGSSR business entities - SRF, RTS, RSI, RTR and SWI.

The SRG-SSR's request to open its archives serves as the basis for this API.

Easy access

Lots of metadata going way back (especially radio up to the 1930s)

Wide range of usage

Use the received data on websites, in apps or other platforms.

Why use it?

Do you want to play video and audio files by using the built-in SRG Player on your site or in your app?  SRG-SSR Archive API can help:

  • Quick search in the video and audio database

  • Access to Tv channels and episodes of radio shows

  • Get streams and play it on your website or in your app

How it works?

Archive metadata is being supplemented with enough Play metadata where correlations exist so that complete Play metadata can be requested.

The end point to get collections of shows by business units. Possible values are “SRF”, “RTS”, “RSI”, “RTR”, “SWI”.
