There are two parts to integrating Dotsub and your Ooyala account. 

Video Ingest: Setting up Dotsub to pull in videos from your Ooyala account for captioning.
Video Push: Setting up Dotsub to upload captions back into your Ooyala account. 
 

Setting up Ooyala Video Ingest

Dotsub uses mRSS to ingest videos from your Ooyala account. To set up a mRSS feed in Ooyala: 

1. Login to your backlot account 
‚Äč2. Select the ‘publish’ tab
3. Select ‘External Publishing’ 
4. Select ‘MP4 mRSS’ and hit ‘Add’

5. Name this new feed and select the label you are using to denote content that should be set to dotsub. 

You can configure a mRSS video ingest from the project settings tab in your project dashboard. Hitting the 'plus' on the Media Ingestors pane allows you to add a new ingestor. From the type menu select 'mRSS'.

Feed Url: The URL to the MP4 MRSS video feed you created on Ooyala. This is the only configuration property for this type of ingestor. 



Now all you have to do is add a video to that mRSS feed. then hit the ingest button on Dotsub. If you'd like more information on mRSS feeds in Ooyala please refer to their documentation: http://support.ooyala.com/documentation/tasks/ingestion_mrss_use.html

You can check your configuration is correct on the 'Project Information' tab. Here you will see the ingest logs.
