Amazon Elastic Transcoder
Developer Guide (API Version 2012-09-25)

Using the AWS SDKs

If you are using a language for which an AWS SDK exists, use the SDK rather than trying to work your way through the APIs. The SDKs make authentication simpler, integrate easily with your development environment, and provide easy access to Elastic Transcoder commands. For more information about the AWS SDKs, including how to set up your environment, links to the SDK documentation, and sample code, see AWS SDK Sample Code
