Part 2:
7. Fill in the credentials you received from "API/SDK access" in the txtplays IBM integration box, which you can find on the "Integrations" page in the txtplay app
8. Press "Create" and the integration is complete, now you can generate subtitles for your videos in IBM
9. Specific details on how to generate subtitles from txtplay in your IBM video platform are further explained below in "IBM integration workflow"

The solution can be set up in 10 minutes and is based on IBM API. We just need Client ID and Client-Secret.

Subtitles are per default uploaded as a draft. This means that you need to publish it to have it visible in the player. This can of course be changed if needed so subtitles are auto-published. You can also set up the integration, so everything is automatically transcribed without adding custom fields based on the default language. Subtitle labels in the video player can be set up custom i.e. Danish as “Dansk” in the player.
