OVP migration flow - an agnostic blueprint

To initiate the transition from any given Source On-line Video Platform to a Destination OVP, the first step involves retrieving video information from the OVP Source. You should be able to achieve this by making a GET request to the OVP Source's API authenticating against it, typically using an access token and video ID. This request should typically be directed to a generic API endpoint.

Upon receiving a response, you should have the opportunity to extract valuable video metadata, including details like the title, description, and tags. Additionally, you can identify the download link for the highest quality version available.

This process should result in acquiring a video asset along with its associated metadata, often structured in XML format. Once these initial steps are executed, you may offer the user the choice to remove the video entry from OVP Source.

Following this, the natural progression leads into the OVP Destination ingest process, aligning with their API documentation and specifications.

OVP migration flow UML

Purpose: The purpose of the document is to outline a generic blueprint for the migration of video content from any Source On-line Video Platform (OVP) to a Destination OVP. This blueprint provides a high-level overview of the key steps and considerations involved in such a migration process.

Context: In the context of digital content migration, this blueprint serves as a guide for initiating the transition from one OVP to another. It emphasizes the importance of retrieving video information from the source platform, including metadata extraction and potential deletion of content. The document sets the stage for a seamless migration process, aligning with the API documentation and specifications of the destination OVP.
