FTP Deliveries

FTP Deliveries are available in the Settings section of your 3Play Media project.
With ftp deliveries, 3Play will automatically deliver caption and transcript formats to your FTP server with a naming convention you specify to fit your workflow needs.

FTP Credentials

Input a FTP host, username, and password as the credentials to your FTP server.
Specify a path if you would like the 3Play FTP server to navigate to a specific directory. 
Note that the FTP host name should not contain the ftp:// protocol indicator. 
We recommend that you create a username and password specifically for the 3Play delivery process.

Output Formats

You can select any caption or transcript format you would like delivered, including any custom formats you have tied to your account.  Common delivery formats are SRT and DFXP captions, and TXT and HTML transcripts.

Naming Convention

Input a naming convention for deliveries, taking into account any information you may need to have in the output file names.  You can use variables by placing attributes in curly braces.  For example, if you have uploaded a file for transcription with the title “Lecture_1” with the video_id of “ABC123” into the folder “Math101”, and you would like to track these attributes in the delivery name, set up your naming convention as:

{folder}_{name}_{video_id} ...and you will receive your output files as:


...assuming you have selected the SRT, TXT and HTML formats as your delivery formats.
