Input parameters

Required parameters:

  • String apikey (Project API-key)
  • String title (Media title)

Sample query:

https://boomstream.com/api/media/upload?apikey=[API_KEY]&title=temp

Sample response:

<Response>
  <UploadUrl>
    https://node.org/upload/hash:8d7cd/f1a05782f77aca5cc78647178110ac8a
  </UploadUrl>
  <ProgressBarUrl>
    https://boomstream.com/api/media/progressbar
  </ProgressBarUrl>
  <Status>
    Success
  </Status>
</Response>

2. Create a page of upload, for example "upload.php". Add tag “iframe” to the body and insert parameter “UploadUrl”.

Sample code:

  <body>
    <iframe src="https://localhost/iframe.php?link=<UploadUrl>">
  </body>

3. Create a page for the “Browse” button, which will be displayed in the frame - iframe.php.

Sample page code:

  <script type="text/javascript">
    function submitForm() {
        parent.runUpload();
        $('#form1').submit();
    }
  </script>

  <form action="<UploadUrl>" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data" id="form1">
    <input type="file" name="file" onchange="submitForm()">
  </form>

4. You must create the proxy script to get upload status - progressbar.php.

Sample page code:

  <?php
    $progressBarUrl = (isset($_GET['progressBarUrl'])) ? $_GET['progressBarUrl'] : '';
    echo @file_get_contents($progressBarUrl . '&format=json');
  ?>

5. Add code javascript on the page "upload.php". It will send every second requests to progressbar.php.

Sample page code:

  <script type="text/javascript">
    var refreshIntervalId;
    var refresh = 1000;
    function runUpload() {
      $('#form1').submit();
        refreshIntervalId = setTimeout('getPercent()', refresh);
      }
            
      function getPercent(){
        $.get('https://localhost/progressbar.php', {progressBarUrl:"<progressBarUrl>"}, function(data){
          if(data.Action=='done') {
            console.log("DONE");
          } else {
             refreshIntervalId = setTimeout('getPercent()', refresh);
          }
        },'json');
      }
   </script>

Required parameters:

  • String progressBarUrl (from first request)

Sample response:

<Response>
  <Percent>10</Percent>
  <Action>work</Action>
  ...
</Response>

When the percent reaches 100%, you will get the following response: Sample response:
