MediaSite 7: Captioning Integration Overview

MediaSite logo


3Play Media has a complete integration with MediaSite 7. Submit captioning requests from within MediaSite for individual presentations or an entire folder. 3Play Media automatically receives and processes presentations, and then posts the captions back to MediaSite. Requests can be monitored from within MediaSite or the 3Play Media account system.

Important Note for MediaSite v7.2.2 and SFTP

Users on MediaSite version 7.2.2 will see that the server protocol defaults to SFTP when adding a new audio transcription profile within MediaSite. Please note that the credentials displayed within the 3Play Media account system for setting up the integration are for the FTP option not SFTP however SSH keys are available for the SFTP option.

Please contact 3Play Media Support with the username obtained in step 4 to have an SFTP account created in order to obtain an SSH key created for an SFTP workflow.

Before setting up this integration it is best practice to create a project within your 3Play Media account dedicated to your MediaSite requests. Please contact your account manager as a new project should be created within your account by a 3Play Media team member
