Step 4- Allow 3Play Access to Vimeo

After signing into Vimeo, you will be asked if 3Play Media can have access to your Vimeo account.  3Play Media will never post anything to your Vimeo account, we need these other permissions to allow the integration to fully function.  We need these permissions to get access to download urls and to add and edit captions.  Customers shouldn’t be afraid of  the messaging of “Uploading videos on my behalf.” We only need that permission to upload captions.
