Kaltura MediaSpace: Add Captions and Subtitles

If you are a Kaltura admin with access to the KMC, you can easily add captions or multilingual subtitles to your MediaSpace videos using 3Play Media’s round trip integration. If you’re not an admin, but contributing video content, you can still add captions to your MediaSpace videos following the steps below.

See more information regarding 3Play Media's round trip integration with Kaltura.


Step 1- Download the SRT Captions or Subtitles File

After you’ve uploaded your video to 3Play Media and the processing has been completed, download the SRT captions file and save it to your computer.

Note: The DFXP captions file format is also compatible with MediaSpace

If you’ve translated your video into other languages, then you should also download the translated SRT subtitles.
