We’re building an integrations using web technologies. To display the thumbnail or the primary representation, we had to create a proxy which simplifies the download of the images by standard tags image or video.
<img src="..." />
<video> <source src="..." type="video/mp4"> </video>
It would be great if the urls of the media files (images, videos, …) would uses a url parameter for authentication instead of the headers authentication and x-api-key. Other solutions are using token which are valid for a certain time, afterwards the url to files invalid.
In our case, we could avoid the traffic on our servers and we could speed up the loading of files.
