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
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.
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.
