Transcribing videos

Flowplayer offers AI-driven speech to text transcriptions that automatically add the transcript as a vtt subtitle to the video and displays it in the player.

This feature is only available for Enterprise subscriptions

There are three ways to start transcribing videos.

  • Configure the Workspace settings to automatically start transcribing on video asset uploads.
  • Manually start transcription by clicking "View files" and then select transcription language for the video asset.
  • Using the API to start the transcription per video.
