Turn Postback Captions to On to have captions, upon completion of the transcription process, automatically sent to and associated with the Brightcove assets. While translation requests can only be made directly from the user's 3Play Media account, upon completion of the translation process, the subtitles also will automatically postback to Brightcove.
Tag Based Auto Upload
Turn Auto Upload to On to enable the ability to submit caption requests directly from Brightcove.
Once you have entered the required information, click Create Account.
Deliver Captions as Default
Turn on Deliver Captions as Default to set the caption file returned by the automatic postback as the default caption file for the media asset. This setting is useful if you plan on having multiple subtitle translations on the media asset, but may interact with some Brightcove players such that the track selected as 'default' will play automatically upon player load. To disable this, either turn off the Deliver Captions as Default setting, or consult the Brightcove documentation here.
