Hi Roman,

Have you already tried using the Server Side or Hybrid web application client type to get an access token for the Upload API?

If not, could you let me know a little bit more about what you're trying to accomplish, and how your users log into Panopto?

Hello Kevin

Yes I tried to use Server Server-side Web Application (Authorization Code Grant) type. I had error. It does not matter now. I will ask about it in other topic.

In my application I need flow without web browser for user authentication. According to your documentation User Based Server Application (Resource Owner Grant) is needed type for me. So I need to know Is it possible to use User Based Server Application (Resource Owner Grant) type for uploading api ?
