Viewing Source File Information

To see information about the orginal source file of an asset, use GET /v2/assets/asset_id/source_file_info.

To view the information about the source file for videos or audios:

Use the GET /v2/assets, the asset ID, and the /source_file_info qualifier. The following example displays ABR streams for the JxbzdkMjqB asset:
[GET]/v2/assets/JxbzdkMjqB/source_file_info

Backlot returns a response similar to the following.

      "is_source":false,
      "video_width":640,
      "file_size":17937644,
      "audio_codec":"aac",
