Captions Plugin

Captions Plugin


This video explains how to configure
and install the captions plugin. The captions plugin displays closed captions and
multilingual subtitles for the most popular video players. It also makes your video searchable
and SEO friendly. The easiest way to install the captions plugin
is to insert the embed code from your 3Play Media account into the HTML of your web page. The captions files and search will
be hosted by 3Play Media. To begin, go to My Files and
select the Publish tab. Then click the Video Plugins link beside
the file that you want to publish. Then select the Captions Plugin tab. This opens an interface where you can set
up and preview the captions plugin. Click the checkbox to enable the plugin. Then choose the type of video player
you are using and the settings. For example, you can change the
skin to be light or dark. Or if you select overlay mode, the text will
be displayed on top of the video instead of underneath. You can try out different settings using the
preview window on the left side of the screen. To add the SEO component, select the SEO
Transcript tab and check the box to enable it. This allows search engines to index
the spoken content in your video. The embed code in the bottom right corner
automatically updates when you make changes to the settings. Once you’ve decided on the settings, click
the embed code to select it, and copy it to your clipboard. Then paste it in your web page, right
after the code for the video player. The captions plugin should now
appear on your web page. You can further customize the plugin
by tweaking the embed code. For example, you can control the width and
position, add multiple subtitle language tracks, or disable certain features. For complete details, refer
to support documentation. Although not covered in this video, it’s also
possible to do a self hosted installation, so that the plugin and captions files are
stored internally on your server. Also, note that the captions plugin can be used
in combination with other video plugins, like the interactive transcript. Thank you for watching this video
