Overview 

DailyMotion is a content sharing service. Its users post videos, watch videos, and post and receive comments. If you’re looking to access social data related to online videos, Dailymotion is a great source of information. Connect to Dailymotion through our Data Collector and we will give you the ability to get data related to keywords or tags you specify in a normalized stream along with all the other social data you collect from Gnip. Data returned includes categories and other data for your analysis.

Gnip provides managed access to Dailymotion’s public API via the Data Collector. See below for details on the specific type of access supported, and sample payloads.
