What is it?
The SRG-SSR Video REST API allows you to get video metadata (including subtitles) from various business units (RSI, RTS, RTS, SRF, SWI).
The API delivers a list of video objects filtered by search parameters that you provided. The API response contains a JSON definition of a playable asset, for example a list of video by tag, all the episodes of a show, or videos that expire soon.
To play videos, you can use our player. It needs only the ID of the video you get by using the APIs. For more details on how to integrate and use the player in your HTML page, please visit
