ViCC: Order Video Clip Captions

The following is required before working with 3Play Media's Video Clip Captioning (ViCC) tool...

  • To create the shorter caption files for video clips excerpted from a longer master source media file sequence, the master sequence from which the smaller video clips have come from must first be listed as an available file in your 3Play Media account. If the parent media file is not yet in the 3Play Media account system there are three methods that can be used to create the required "parent" file; the default transcription and captioning service, the transcript alignment service, or the captions import module.
  • The parent 3Play Media file must also contain the source media file.
    For parent files created using the captions import module the source media will need to be added. 
    If the 3Play parent file was created using either the default transcription/captioning service or the transcript alignment service the source media file may need to be added back to the file depending on how recently the parent file was created.
  • PROOFREAD the parent 3Play Media file and, if necessary, make any basic corrections using the Edit Transcript tool before using ViCC to create child caption files for your video clips.

Turnaround times for creating child caption files...

PLEASE NOTE: if you will be creating multiple child caption files from a parent file that the first child clip may take about 1/10 realtime of the parent file to generate the first child caption file but all subsequent requests for child caption files from this previously analyzed parent file will be created almost immediately.
