This topic explains how to delete videos. The examples below show you how to delete all of the available videos or how to delete only a specific video by its ID.
NOTE: The code examples below work with the ID of the master version of the video. Deleting the master version also deletes the other versions of the item. For more information about doing this using the ID of the live version, see For developers: Delete content.
When deleting a specific video by the ID of its master version, you must perform the following:
Get the video.
First, get an instance of the master version with the corresponding ID.
Delete the video.
Mark the master version to be deleted and save the changes.
The following code deletes a video by the ID of its master version.
LibrariesManager manager = LibrariesManager.GetManager();
//Get the master version of the item.
Video master = manager.GetVideos().Where(i => i.Id == masterVideoId).SingleOrDefault();
//Mark the item to be deleted.
//Save the changes.
First, you get an instance of the LibrariesManager class. Then, you get the master version with the corresponding ID. To mark the master version to be deleted, you call the DeleteVideo method of the manager with the master version as an argument. Finally, you save the changes.
First, you get the singular video facade of the master version with the specified ID. Then, to mark the video to be deleted, you call theDeleteVideo method. Finally, you call SaveChanges.
When deleting all videos, you must perform the following:
Get the available videos.
Get the master versions of the available videos.
Delete each video in the collection.
Iterate through the collection and delete each video.
The following code deletes all videos.
var videos = manager.GetVideos().Where(i => i.Status == ContentLifecycleStatus.Master).ToList();
First, you get an instance of the LibrariesManager class. Then, you get the master versions of the available videos. You iterate through the collection and mark each video to be deleted. Finally, you save the changes.
First, you get the plural videos facade. Then you call the Delete method to mark each video to be deleted. Finally, you save the changes.
