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 your 3Play Media account to enable the Kaltura integration.

Linking accounts makes for an easier workflow for creating and publishing captions or subtitles for Kaltura. It will also allow you to transfer media files directly from Kaltura to your 3Play Media account for processing.

Upon completion of the transcription process captions can automatically be sent back to your Kaltura Management Console (KMC). While translations can only be ordered directly from the 3Play Media interface but with auto postback enabled, the subtitles automatically are added back to the associated assets upon completion of the translation process.

You can monitor the status of your files from your 3Play Media account.
