Click the big red button that says ‘get started.’

Step 2: Create Your Caption Order

The site prompts you to select the source of your video. Since we’re uploading a video from your computer, you’ll choose the far left option, ‘upload files from your computer.’  Click the red button that says ‘upload files.’

Step 3: Choose Files Screen

On the choose file screen, you’ll have several options for uploading a video, listed to the left. Since we’re uploading the file from your computer, your option is preselected for you. At this point, you can either click the red ‘choose files’ button and select the files from your computer, or simply drag and drop the files from your computer into the window.

You’ll notice that once you’ve selected one file, the window changes to show a list of the files you’ve selected. You may click the red button marked ‘add more files’ to continue selecting files through file explorer, or continue dragging and dropping files into the box at the top of the window.  You may upload up to five gigabytes worth of files at a time.

You may also upload files directly from the web, or from Dropbox, FTP, Box, Google Drive, or OneDrive. Click the links to find out more about how to do this. You may click on the options you wish in the ‘Choose files’ page and upload files from several different sources in the same upload, if you’d like. Once you’re done selecting your videos, just click the upload button on the lower right to securely upload your files to our system and place your order.

We also offer simple order placement with our integrations. You can find out more information for KalturaEnsemble, and YouTube by clicking on the links.
