3Play Media: Docs


Configure your transcript, audio description, and other settings at 3Play Media

Configurations can be applied at the project, batch, or media file

Object Representation

Configurations are returned as an array of objects with the following attributes:

Name Type Description
name String Configuration name
category String Configuration category
value * Configuration value
resource String Which resource is assigned to this configuration. Configurations are inherited from their parent resources (e.g. Project) unless set at a more specific level. "Default" means no value is set and your project is using the default value for this configuration.

Supported Configurations

You may view or set confiurations by issuing a GET or POST request, respectively, to the path /config nested under the desired resource. For example, to set the speaker label setting a batch with id 1234 to the value "Entertainment and Media", you would issue:

POST https://api.3playmedia.com/v3/batches/1234/config?speaker_identification=Entertainment+and+Media

The following additional configurations are supported, and multiple configurations can be set in a single call. Note that values must be URI-encoded (e.g. Clean%20Read or Clean+Read) and are case sensitive.
