API endpoints 

An API endpoint is a path that uniquely identifies a Cinema8 resource: anything from an interactive video to a user account. The exact path of the endpoint differs depending on the type of resource, but you always append it to

Interactive Video
* Items between braces such as {video_id} represent parameter values.

To access rest endpoint you need to obtain an api key and send this key within Request Headers.

Headers:     Authorization: Bearer <base_64_encoded(API_KEY)>
