permalink Do I need an integration library?

No. At the minimum, integrating with Zencoder is just sending a HTTP request with a JSON or XML body. You can do this from the command line with curl. Get a 201 Created back, and you've just integrated with Zencoder.

Beyond that, you might want to receive output_notification via HTTP. Give us a URL, and we'll POST job status back to you. You just need a URL on your site set up to receive a HTTP POST with a JSON or XML body.

Finally, you might want to use our API to do other things with encoding jobs, like working_with_jobs, working_with_jobs, or working_with_jobs. That's just HTTP requests too.
