Setting up Automation templates

📢
Requirements: Enterprise subscription
 

To set up Automation inside of CaptionHub, first you need to create an Automation template.

 
  1. First, navigate to Automation, available from the drop-down at the top right of the screen
  1. Enter a name for your Automation template in the “Template name” box, and click the “Create template” button
  1. You’ll then see a two of tabs, which you’ll need to fill in, according to what you’d like to automate
 

Automation

Project source:

  • API or UI – select this if the source for your media will be via API or UI upload
  • Brightcove – select this if you’d like the template to apply to media coming from Brightcove. You’ll need to set up the Brightcove connector first. When Brightcove is selected, you have the option to automatically import “All new media” or “Tagged” media.
    • “All new media” will automatically import any new video you upload to Brightcove into CaptionHub. The timestamp for this is taken from the point at which the automation was made active.
    • “Tagged” media will import all videos which match the tag you define. You can set up powerful workflows with this option, triggering different workflows with different tags.
  • JWPlayer – select this if you’d like the template to apply to media coming from JWPlayer. You’ll need to set up the JWPlayer connector first.
  • Qumu – select this if you’d like the template to apply to media coming from Qumu. You’ll need to set up the Qumu connector first.
  • Vimeo - select this if you’d like the template to apply to media coming from Vimeo. You’ll need to set up the Vimeo connector first.

💡
Note that any videos imported via Automation will automatically have a captionhub tag added to them in your video platform, to show that they’ve been processed by CaptionHub. In other words, if you import a video via Automation template and you then delete that video in CaptionHub, it will not be automatically re-imported on account of the tag. You’ll need to remove the captionhub tag in your video platform before CaptionHub can re-import the video.
