Is inactive content being returned by the API?

Inactive content won't be returned by the API, as the API only returns active media content. Its purpose is to allow clients to build a dynamic system for displaying their content, therefore inactive content won`t be included in the API. 

If you would like to activate content, you can do that via the Channel Managers (click on Control Center and then on the Channel) or by clicking on "Media Archives". In the Media Archives section you can deactivate/activate videos by mousing over the video and clicking the "Activate/Deactivate" button on the right.
