How does this work?

Read this if you want to add closed captioning to live video and plan to hire a human captioner for one or many broadcasts. 

Min

  • Open a Videolinq Basic or higher subscription plan.

  • Create a channel, and enable captions option # 3 (manual operator).

  • Copy the server, stream key, and password details.

  • Share the credentials and audio link with your caption’s operator. Ask them to connect to Videolinq with a partner listed on this page. 

  • Start the RTMP encoder and send live video to Videolinq. Go Live.

  • Ask the operator to send captions.

  • Confirm you see closed captioning on the preview player.

  • Configure one or more destinations for the live broadcast.

to your destination

As long as your subscription plan is active, and you don't change the "Channel" and "Source" settings, the credentials and RTMP encoder configuration will not change. Don't need an active subscription but want to keep all configurations in place? Put your plan "on hold".
