Brightcove Live Auto Captioning: Scheduling a Live Event

Follow the steps below to schedule a live event within Brightcove and 3Play Media once the Live API Key has been added to the Brightcove integration settings within your 3Play Media project. Live event scheduling defaults to US-Eastern time unless a new timezone has been configured at the user level and configured for users outside of the US-Eastern time zone.


Step 1 - Create the Event in Brightcove

Navigate to the Brightcove Live module.

Click Create Event.


Step 2 - Configure the Event in Brightcove

Enter an Event Name for the live event (required). The name of the event will display within 3Play Media later when scheduling the captioning at step 5.

Under Stream Options, select
Virginia as the Region. This is the closest location to where 3play is processing the stream, optimizing the stream connectivity.

Click Create Event

Step 3 - Log into 3Play Media

Log into the 3Play Media account system

Open a new browser window and log into your 3Play Media account.

Step 4 - Navigate to Live Auto Captioning Module

Navigate to the Live Auto Captioning module within your 3Play Media project.


Step 5 - Schedule Brightcove Live Event in 3Play Media

Click Schedule Live Captions.

On the Scheduling page, select the Brightcove logo, along with the Brightcove account that you're scheduling captions for.

Check the box next to the live event that was scheduled within Brightcove in steps 1-2.
Enter the Date and Start Time for the live auto captioning event, add an optional
Wordlist, or edit the Advanced Settings.



In the Advanced Settings, it's important to specify your preference for caption delivery, either natively, in the Brightcove player or outside the player on a separate hosted page via iFrame/Javascript embed.



After selecting the caption delivery method in the Advanced Settings, click Schedule Events.


Once the live auto captions are scheduled, the page will redirect to a Confirmation page.


If you selected "3Play Captions via iFrame or JS Embed" as your preferred caption delivery method, then the 3Play embed code with the captions will populate on the confirmation page. From there, you can setup an event page for captions delivered to the 3Play iFrame/Javascript embed.
