permalink API Version History

API versioning means we can roll out new features and options with less worry about breaking existing integrations. When an update to Zencoder is not backwards-compatible, it'll go in to the next API version, so you can upgrade when you're ready to use it.

You specify the API version you want to use through the URL your application uses to post to Zencoder - posts to https://app.zencoder.com/api/v2/ use V2. If no version is specified the request will use the edge API where things can change without warning, so only use this if you're experimenting with a new feature before it's officially available, never in production.

API versions will be closed down as new versions come online, and we will always give at least 6 months notice before a version is shuttered so that you have time to migrate your application.
