Brightcove OAuth Getting Started Guide

Last Updated: May 16, 2016 08:55AM EDT
Please note: These instructions are only for users using the new HTML5 video player and the new Brightcove CMS. If you are using 'Video Cloud' please use the 'Brightcove Getting Started Guide'

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


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

What you need

In order to successfully set up your Brightcove OAuth integration to ingest videos and push subtitles, you will ned to obtain the API credentials from your Brightcove account administrative panel. This document guides you through the process of registering a new client application and generating the client secret keys:

http://docs.brightcove.com/en/video-cloud/oauth-api/guides/managing-api-credentials.html

Please make sure that the selected authorization account exposes the appropriate API permissions. The CMS permission should be "Video Read" (for ingest) and "Video Read/Write" for subtitle pushes, as shown in this example. 

 

Setting up Brightcove OAuth Video Ingest


You can configure a Brightcove 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 'Brightcove'.



There are four required configuration options: 

Client ID: The client ID for your for your Brightcove account.

Account ID: The account ID for your for your Brightcove account.

Client Secret: The client secret for your for your Brightcove account.

You can find documentation on how to get these value from Brightcove here: http://support.brightcove.com/en/perform/docs/managing-api-credentials
 
Tags: Tags are used to denote what Brightcove videos are ingested into Dotsub. We suggest using a tag of 'dotsub' or 'captions'. If no tag is entered all videos in your Brightcove account will be ingested. 



Now all you have to do it tag a video in your Brightcove account with the configured tag, then hit the ingest button on Dotsub. If you'd like a tutorial on tagging Brightcove videos, you can find one here: http://support.brightcove.com/en/video-cloud/training-videos/tagging-videos 

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

Setting up Brightcove OAuth Video Push


You can configure a Brightcove video push from the project settings tab in your project dashboard. Hitting the 'gear' on the Media Push pane allows you to add a new ingestor. From the type menu select 'Brightcove'.



Media Push has three configuration options: 

Client ID: The client ID for your for your Brightcove account.

Account ID: The account ID for your for your Brightcove account.

Client Secret: The client secret for your for your Brightcove account.

You can find documentation on how to get these value from Brightcove here: http://support.brightcove.com/en/perform/docs/managing-api-credentials



Once configured, each published caption or translation will be uploaded back into your Brightcove account. 

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