Panopto: Folder Level Caption Request Settings

Once you have set up the integration between 3Play Media and Panopto, follow the steps below to configure a Panopto folder so that all new content, when added to this folder, is then automatically submitted to 3Play Media for closed captioning. Upon completion of the transcription process, the closed captions will be sent back and added to the associated sessions automatically.


Step 1- Browse

Click "Browse" in the left-hand side of page after signing into Panopto.

Step 3- Click Settings tab

Click the Settings tab from the available options for this folder.
