Getting the content from the 247 Platform onto your website is very simple. On the Video page, under the Live tab and the VOD tab, you'll see a link that looks something like this:
This embed page is all you need to send your viewers to get your content. You can embed it using an I-frame, using code like:
<iframe width="853" height="480" src="http://console.247platform.com/embed/?v=2c-b22db-vod" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true" mozallowfullscreen="true" webkitallowfullscreen="true" ></iframe>
There are several parameters you can pass to the embed link in the form of the querystring.
|v||the stream name of the video||Yes|
|autoplay||If the video should start playing once the page has loaded||0 or 1||No|
|authHash||The authorization hash used for secure videos||A string passed back via the API||No|
|hidethumb||Set to not show the thumbnail in the embed page||0 or 1||No|
|defimage||Set an alternative image instead of the Thumbnail to be displayed||URL to image||No|

The embed url always requires the v option, so it's advised to start with that. Other values you can add to the URL by appending them with a &, so to not autoplay the above video, and to use a different thumbnail image you would have a URL like:
Securing your Video
Securing your video so only users you choose can view it is quite simple, but does require some interaction with the 247 Platform API. When you perform a Video - Authenticate call, it returns a value authHash, which is what you embed in your video embed querystring.
Remember - you will need to change the Security dropdown ( under Settings on your videos' Live or Video on Demand tab) to Only authorised can watch for this to take effect.
