Captioning deliver to the 3Play Embed and External Webpage URL is available for all 3Play Live captioned events regardless of Live caption integration, production or delivery method. By default 3Play creates a unique embed code and External Webpage URL to which captions are delivered for each live captioning event scheduled in 3Play.
For customers that would like captions delivered to a fixed location, 3Play provides customers with the ability to use a Reserved (static) embed code and External Webpage URL per project, such that if used, captions can be delivered to the same embed / external webpage for every event scheduled within that project. Please contact your 3Play account manager or 3Play support to have this feature enabled in your account.
Further information on customizing your Embed or External Webpage URL is available here.
To use a reserved Embed / External Webpage URL, select the "Use Reserved Embed / External Webpage URL for caption delivery" check box within the Advanced Settings modal when ordering a live event.
To set the use of a reserved Embed / External Webpage URL as a project-level default, navigate to project settings, select "Live Caption Settings" from the left-hand menu, and select the check box "Use Reserved Embed / External Webpage URL for caption delivery" and click "Save Changes" to apply the new default.
Once the project level default is updated, it will apply to any events scheduled after that update. Any live events that were previously scheduled will retain their original settings.
- Only one reserved Embed / External Webpage URL is available per 3Play project. Please contact your account manager if you require multiple reserved Embed / External Webpage URLs within a 3Play project.
- 3Play does not prevent scheduling overlapping events on your Reserved Embed Code / External Webpage URL. If overlapping events are scheduled using the same Reserved Embed Code / External Webpage URL, captions from the second event will take over from the first event at the start time of the second event. For example, if Event #1 runs long and overlaps with the start time for Event #2, captions produced for Event #2 will be delivered to the Reserved Embed/External Webpage URL at the caption start time for Event #2.
- Only captions from the current event will be accessible within the Reserved Embed / External Webpage URL. Captions from previous events delivered to a Reserved Embed / External Webpage URL will no longer be visible once a new event delivering to that Reserved Embed has started.
