Wistia Integration


*Wistia API integration is currently under new development - Integration with Webdam is unavailable at the moment*

Customers with a Wistia subscription can publish their Webdam videos to Wistia, which will cause the Webdam video player to default to Wistia’s player.

This means that Webdam can remain the central repository and distribution site for all assets while still leveraging Wistia’s advanced video playback features and usage analytics.

NOTE: As the Webdam custom field 16 is used for the Wistia Hashed IDs and should not be edited, we recommend leaving this metadata field as Inactive. (Read more about configuring the metadata schema.)

Enable Wistia (admins):

An admin will first need to enable the Wistia integration.

  • Log into Webdam.

  • Click and select System Preferences.

  • In the Cloud Sharing Settings section, click the box next to Cloud sharing channels and select Wistia.
  • Enter the Wistia client ID and client secret. If you don’t know your Wistia client ID and secret, please contact your Wistia admin.
  • Click Save


Publish videos:

Users with download permission in Webdam (admins, contributors and regular users) can publish their videos to Wistia.

  • Log into Webdam.

  • Navigate to and select a video asset.

  • Click Screen_Shot_2017-07-13_at_8.56.30_AM.png and select Wistia.


  • In the pop-up, click Add Integration and log in with your Wistia credentials.
  • Authorize Webdam application.
  • Highlight the target location in Wistia or create a new project, if desired.
  • Click Send.

    The Wistia video player will replace the standard Webdam video player once video is uploaded and processed in Wistia (processing time may vary depending on the file size).
