Drupal 7 - 7.x-6.x

  1. Download the module and its dependencies
  2. Download the PHP-API-Wrapper
    Download (latest release is recommended instead of the master branch) to sites/all/libraries.
  3. Install and enable modules
    Install and enable the Brightcove Video Connect module and its dependencies (Ctools, Entity, Libraries, Date (date_api, date_popup)).
  4. Generate credentials
    Go to and generate a new set of credentials. Make sure you enable all permissions, because currently the API does not expose the user permissions, so the module can’t adapt to that.
  5. Add credentials
    Under admin/config/brightcove/client add these credentials.
