Helping people discover content in Disney’s enormous on-demand catalog is a good thing, right? After all, it gets more people watching Disney+ while making your app or website more useful to your customers. But developers need a Disney+ API to make that happen.
Although Disney does a lot for the Open Source community, helping developers create recommendation engines and other Disney+ aware features hasn’t been a priority. We’ll take a look at Disney’s developer relationships and show you how you can enhance your projects with Disney+ metadata.
Is there a Disney+ API?
The Walt Disney Company’s developers use, and contribute to, many Open Source projects. Executives at the company’s game division are even showing more interest in working with indie developers. But that’s as far as they go.
You won’t find a Disney-supported public API that lets you pull metadata about Disney+ content. That’s a major obstacle if you want to include universal search and other streaming-aware features. You could roll your own solution, but scraping Disney+ metadata once is not enough. The information goes stale as content appears and disappears from the Disney+ catalog. Keeping everything up-to-date requires pulling a dedicated team from your core development work.
To give developers an affordable alternative, we created the Flixed APIs for on-demand content.
