Upload Kaltura Videos to 3Play Media- From Your Kaltura Account

Overview

There are two ways to upload Kaltura videos: (i) from your 3Play Media account or (ii) directly from your Kaltura account.  This section explains the second way.

After your Kaltura account has been linked with your 3Play Media account (a one time process), you can upload files to 3Play Media directly from your Kaltura account (without logging into your 3Play Media account). By creating a category called 3play in your Kaltura account and placing videos in that category, 3Play Media will know to automatically upload those videos for processing.

Rush, Expedited, Same Day, and Extended Turnaround times can also be requested by creating other 3play categories as detailed in steps 3 and 4.

Regarding turnaround time and cumulative duration of content...

If you know you are going to have uploads that  exceed the recommendations below, please contact your account manager.

NOTE: If you exceed these limits, we will still aim to complete your files on time, but we cannot guarantee the turnaround.

Standard Turnaround: Adding a video to the category 3play will submit this file for Standard Turnaround. This turnaround is four business days, provided that your file is uploaded by 8pm ET.

The cumulative duration of all files submitted for Standard service cannot exceed 40 hours in a single day and an individual file cannot exceed 4 hours. 

For example, if your file is uploaded by 8pm ET on Monday, it will be ready by 8pm ET on Friday.  If your file is uploaded after 8pm ET on Monday, it will count as being uploaded on Tuesday, and will be ready by 8pm ET the following Monday.

 

Same Day Turnaround: Adding a video to the category 3play_same_day will submit this file for Same Day Turnaround. This turnaround time is eight hours from upload time, provided that the file is uploaded by 8pm ET on a business day.

For example, if your file is uploaded at 9am ET on Tuesday, it will be completed by 5pm ET on Tuesday. If your file is uploaded after 8pm ET on Tuesday, it will count as being uploaded on Wednesday at 8am ET and will be completed by 4pm ET on Wednesday.

For one project, an individual file cannot exceed 10 minutes and the cumulative duration of all files submitted for Same Day service cannot exceed 2 hours in a single day.  If you exceed these limits, we will still aim to complete your files on time, but we cannot guarantee the turnaround.
