1. Introduction

Under one of video tutorial I recorded about bunny.net uploading movies directly from DropBox or Google Drive, You have asked me how to do it between bunny.net accounts itself. It is same like with others, just getting URL is different and I explained it already in this video. So let me show you how to put it all together.

2. Analyse old library.

2.1. Note down your credential

Open up your old library. In case you were using trial version that expired, your UI will be slow and you may see errors.

Do not worry. The only thing you need to get from here is API key so you can connect with Postman or curl. Visit API key page to get that key.

Note down your video library id. It is available in stream API section

2.2. Connect to API and get details

Now you can connect via API and get information about video library like storage ID.

You have an access now to Edge Storage API with password from previous response. Use Pull Zone name as initial catalog to see whats there.

You will get multiple media files. If there is ObjectName equal to “original” then it means this is original uploaded file before transcoding. Good candidate to move it into new video library in new bunny.net account.

2.3. Prepare URL for fetching

You need direct link to download video file and that can be prepared by combination of API key, download param and path

				
					https://storage.bunnycdn.com/vz-1d91ed2b-7d3/45f25b31-df60-4177-ac59-2ec91853d98a/original?AccessKey=bc78aae2-5dd3-44cb-a88c2ef8d9f0-1ca8-48b3&download
				
			

3. Prepare new library

Visit API key page in your new bunny.net account and note down API key. Then use it to create video library.

				
					curl --location 'https://api.bunny.net/videolibrary' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--header 'AccessKey: 9e1f62a6-2d28-4646-b039-c3afbd0da3f5' \
--data '{
    "name":"migration_from_old"
}'
				
			

response

				
					{
    "Id": 262573,
    "Name": "migration_from_old",
    "VideoCount": 0,
    "TrafficUsage": 0,
    "StorageUsage": 0,
    "DateCreated": "2024-06-29T16:47:33.2714592Z",
    "ReplicationRegions": [
        ""
    ],
    "ApiKey": "4125e327-ce88-42c4-affd9b288fc6-eacc-432c",
				
			

ApiKey from response you will use for Stream API to fetch video.

3.1. Fetching video – migration

Use below API call to download directly original video from old bunny account into newly created library.

				
					curl --location 'https://video.bunnycdn.com/library/262573/videos/fetch' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--header 'AccessKey: 4125e327-ce88-42c4-affd9b288fc6-eacc-432c' \
--data '{
    "url": "https://storage.bunnycdn.com/vz-1d91ed2b-7d3/45f25b31-df60-4177-ac59-2ec91853d98a/original?AccessKey=bc78aae2-5dd3-44cb-a88c2ef8d9f0-1ca8-48b3&download"
