Getting Started - How to upload files using web links

Uploading files straight from the web is easy with Rev. We accept all major video file formats and can output caption files in the format you need for your system.

Step 1: Navigating to Captions screen

If you’re on the front page of, click on the services tab and then click captions. Or from any page on the site, click on the top menu bar and select ‘captions’.

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 file from a public web address, you’ll choose the center option, ‘Share a link to a public web address.’  Click the red button that says ‘paste a URL.’

Step 3: Paste URLs

A screen will pop up for you to paste the URLs to your public videos. Simply copy the entire URL directly from the address bar on your browser. Then paste the URL into the window.

Multiple videos? No problem! Make sure you hit the enter button and paste each URL on a separate line. You may upload up to five gigabytes worth of files at a time.

You may also upload files directly from your computer, by FTP, or from cloud services such as Dropbox,  Box, Google Drive, or OneDrive. Click the links to find out more about how to do this.
