Kaltura: Link Accounts to Enable Kaltura Integration


3Play Media has an end-to-end integration with Kaltura. This article provides step-by-step instructions on how to link a 3Play Media project to the Kaltura Management Console (KMC).

Linking accounts makes for an easier workflow for ordering and publishing captions, subtitles, and audio description for Kaltura assets. It will also allow for an easy media file transfer, sending assets directly from Kaltura to the associated 3Play Media project for processing.

The integration allows for captioning and audio description orders to be submitted directly from within 3Play Media as well as from within the KMC either by using tags or categories.

Once complete, captions and audio descriptions can automatically be sent back to the associated assets residing on the KMC when Postback Captions and Postback Audio Description are both enabled.

While translations can only be ordered directly from the 3Play Media interface the subtitles are still automatically are added back to the associated assets upon completion of the translation process when Postback Captions is enabled.

The status of a  request can be monitored from within the 3Play Media account system.

Postback Captions

Turn Postback Captions to On to have captions, upon completion of the transcription process, automatically sent to and associated with the Kaltura 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 Kaltura.

Postback AD Track

This is an optional setting that allows us to post audio description back to Kaltura. It will add a Kaltura flavor that contains an audio track which is a mix of the source audio and the audio description. Turn Postback AD Track to On to have audio description, upon completion of the audio description process, automatically posted back to the associated file within Kaltura.
