Managing Captions with Cielo24

Note: This process is available only to Institutional Administrators!

This guide will walk you through the process of setting up a Cielo24 caption profile and managing caption requests from the Warpwire admin panel.

Note that to follow this guide you'll need to have an account with Cielo24.

Retrieve your API key from Cielo24.

  1. Login to your account at cielo24.com
  2. Click "Account Settings" in the upper-right of the screen
  3. Click on the "Credentials" tab
  4. The API Key should be at the bottom of the page. It's a long string of letters and numbers
  5. You can generate a key if one does not already exist for your accounts
  6. Use this API Key, along with your Cielo24 username, to create a caption profile following the instructions below.

Create a Caption Profile for your Cielo24 account in the Warpwire Administration Panel

Now that you've got the API Key and Secret, let's go to the Warpwire Admin Tool and get started!

To navigate to the Warpwire Admin Tool, first click your username in the upper-right corner of the screen, then click "Warpwire Admin."

Select "Closed Caption Requests" from the drop down menu in the upper-left of the page.

Now, because you haven't set up a closed caption profile, you won't see any caption requests on this page, because no one has been able to make a request yet!

Click "Manage Profiles" in the upper-right of the screen. Then, click "Add Profile" to create your first profile.

When you click "Add Profile," you'll be able to give your new profile a name, and optionally designate it as the default profile for requests.

You'll then select "Cielo24" as your caption provider, and input the corresponding key and secret.

Select the quality of caption from options as well as the desired turnaround time.

Click "Save" — now you've created a closed caption profile!
