A channel represents a video stream into which adverts are automatically placed by the serverside.ai system. The adverts can come from various sources (e.g. spotx, Freeweel, Google), and this source must be defined as part of the channel. The default is `spotx `. Before using the channels API, you should make sure to know which ad source will be used, and enter it correctly via the ‘systems’ service.
Channels can be created either via the serverside.ai front end application, or via the API. The application uses the API in any case to persist the channel. Channels can be listed (with a search possibility), created, read (by id or by profile hash), updated and deleted, using this API.
