Rev now supports sending captioned or subtitled videos directly to Vimeo. You can take advantage of this feature through your My Files page or from the Captions or Subtitle editors. 

 

Uploading from My Files

1. From My Files, locate the desired file. Click on the (...) dropdown menu and select 'Send to Vimeo'.

 

2. Link your Rev and Vimeo accounts if they are not already connected. If you don't have a Vimeo account yet, you can create one during the process.

3. Click "Upload to Vimeo" to complete the process. Remember that your Vimeo video privacy settings will apply. You can check the status of your upload on your Vimeo account. 

 

4. Choose the Vimeo folder where you want your files to be directed. If you haven't set a default upload folder on Vimeo you'll be prompted to do so. If you belong to multiple teams, you will be able to choose which team you want to upload your videos to. 

 

 

5. Visit your Vimeo account to observe the status of your upload.

FAQ

Are there any requirements for this process to work?

Yes, there are a few requirements. Your video must have been uploaded to Rev directly or sent in via an external URL. Videos submitted to Rev through the Vimeo integration or any other integration will not cooperate with this process. In addition, this process will only work for videos submitted to Rev for captioning or subtitles that are in a delivered, completed state. 

 

Can Rev upload a copy of my video with the captions burned in using this process?

At this time, that is not possible. Rev will upload the video and the sidecar captions as separate files to the same destination. 

 

What kind of quality will my uploaded video be in? 

The video that you see in the captions editor is the same copy that Rev will upload on your behalf. The copy could potentially be a lower-resolution copy than the original video provided when the order was placed, however, these copies are sufficient for most online use. 

 

Can Rev send these videos automatically? 

Not yet. We aren't sure if this will be automated in the future, but for now, they must be manually triggered by visiting the Rev website and following the steps listed in the section above.
