A New Cloud Storage Option: Google Drive
Updated: January 4, 2018
We are excited to announce you can now upload videos for captioning and description through Google Drive!
Our new cloud storage option lets you sync your Google Drive and 3Play account so that you can easily access all your videos, without having to get stuck in a downloading thunderstorm.
How do I link my accounts?
Linking your accounts is easy (trust me, you won’t need to Google it).
Start by logging into your Google Drive account. Next, log into your 3Play Media Account, and under Upload Media, you’ll see the option for Cloud Storage.
In the drop-down menu, you’ll see the option +New Linked Cloud Storage Account. When you click it, a menu will show up with all our cloud storage options. Choose Google Drive.
You’ll be asked to allow 3Play to access your drive, but don’t worry, we won’t ever post or download anything without your permission.
All your captioning deliverables will post back to 3play_deliverables in your favorire output format! Please note that you can not post back description files to the deliverables folder!
