PHP 7.1 or higher. Dependencies are managed using composer.


We publish Mux PHP to Packagist. You should depend on Mux PHP by adding us to your composer.json:

        "require": {
            "muxinc/mux-php": ">=0.0.1"

Then install your dependencies:

    composer install

And then autoload in your code:

    require_once 'vendor/autoload.php';

Getting Started


Mux PHP is a code generated lightweight wrapper around the Mux REST API and reflects them accurately. This has a few consequences you should watch out for:

  1. For almost all API responses, the object you're looking for will be in the data field on the API response object, as in the example below. This is because we designed our APIs with similar concepts to the JSON:API standard. This means we'll be able to return more metadata from our API calls (such as related entities) without the need to make breaking changes to our APIs. We've decided not to hide that in this library.

  2. We don't use a lot of object orientation. For example API calls that happen on a single asset don't exist in the asset class, but are API calls in the AssetsApi which require an asset ID.


To use the Mux API, you'll need an access token and a secret. Details on obtaining these can be found here in the Mux documentation.

Its up to you to manage your token and secret. In our examples, we read them from MUX_TOKEN_ID and MUX_TOKEN_SECRET in your environment.

Example Usage

Below is a quick example of using mux-php to ingest a new Video in your Mux account.

    // Authentication Setup
    $config = MuxPhp\Configuration::getDefaultConfiguration()

    // API Client Initialization
    $assetsApi = new MuxPhp\Api\AssetsApi(
        new GuzzleHttp\Client(),

    // Create Asset Request
    $input = new MuxPhp\Models\InputSettings(["url" => ""]);
    $createAssetRequest = new MuxPhp\Models\CreateAssetRequest(["input" => $input, "playback_policy" => [MuxPhp\Models\PlaybackPolicy::PUBLIC_PLAYBACK_POLICY] ]);

    // Ingest
    $result = $assetsApi->createAsset($createAssetRequest);

    // Print URL
    print "Playback URL:" . $result->getData()->getPlaybackIds()[0]->getId() . ".m3u8\n"

There's also example usage of every API call (also used for testing):
