Either via its own api or via the twitter api?
Practice As Follows
Well, not for the moment according to some requests inside the twitter support: https://dev.twitter.com/discussions/14721
The only things I can find right now is the card used inside a tweet. For example: http://vine.co/v/bwBYItOUKrw/card
My own search
I took some times so see what kind of request does Vine on iOS, using Charles.
First, I checked Tweetbot to see how it retrieve the Vine preview image for its feed. A simple
GET on the Vine video to retrieve header metas and get the preview:
In same meta, you can retrieve the video stream:
Then I opened Vine app. And it makes a request to
https://api.vineapp.com/. Since everything is send though
https, I can only see the request / response encrypted.
Something more interesting
With the api url, I searched on Google and find interesting stuff ! One guy dig better inside Vine request by acting as a man in a middle to see the real request url. There are 3 articles. At the end, the guy successfully posted a video on Vine using its own client.
After that, I checked on Github and found one non-official Vine API using Python. People seems to use the work from the previous guy to determine API full url.
And here is a built-in interface in PHP of this non-official API.
I think you have enough stuff to start your own VineRoulette 🙂
