Easily add captions to your Kaltura videos through our latest integration. Link your Kaltura account with SyncWords and easily select videos for captioning and even have SyncWords post captions back to Kaltura once your project is done. Only videos with a privacy setting of "Anyone" will appear in your account.
From your dashboard, click + New Project
Under Media, click Link a 3rd Party Account to get started.
Now select the Kaltura option and click the “Link Account” button.
You’ll be redirected to a page where you will need to authorize SyncWords to access your Kaltura account. You will need your partner ID, your email and the Administrator Key. You can get these values by logging in to your Kaltura plaftorm and clicking the settings tab.
An important note: Make sure your pop-up blocker is disabled on the SyncWords site, otherwise you won't be able to authorize and link your Kaltura account.
In Safari, simply go to Preferences - Security - and Uncheck Block Pop-up Windows
Once the account is link you can select your linked Kaltura account form the dropdown and pick an available video to caption or transcribe.
You can sort or filter your videos a few different ways. Videos that already have captions have a CC image over the Kaltura thumbnail. Videos that have been captioned by SyncWords will show the SyncWords logo icon over the thumbnail.
Auto Postback Captions to Kaltura
You can automatically upload your synchronized captions to the selected Kaltura video when the project completes.
Simply check off Auto Postback Captions when selecting a video from your linked Kaltura account. That will post back a 32x2 .SRT file to your Kaltura clip.
You can also PostBack captions any time after the project is complete. Any text or timing edits made in the Caption Editor will be included in the file that is posted back. Posting back a file after the fact will add an additional caption file to the list of available captions for that video. To post back after the fact click the More Options button and select the Postback option.
