Below are the steps you need to take in order to connect your Rev and JW Player accounts. 

If you need help, please email support@rev.com.


1. Ensure your Rev account has a payment source

Please note: you will not be able to place orders using the JW Player integration if you do not have a payment source. 

There are two ways to add payment: 
- Add a credit card on the Account Billing Settings page 
- Fill out this form to become a corporate customer - you'll be billed monthly at the end of the month. 

2. Add a New Linked Account on Rev.com

In your Rev Account Settings page, scroll down to “Integration Settings” and click on “Link New Account”.


Select “JWPlatform” as the account type.


3. Input JW Player credentials

Log in to your JW Player account and navigate to the “API Keys” page via the menu at the top of the screen.JW_-_api_keys.png

Click “Show Credentials”.


Copy the “Key” and “Secret” from your JW account to your Rev account as “API Key” and “API Secret”.



3. Input remaining settings

Decide whether you want to turn “Auto Pull Mode” on - you can change this at any time.

  • “Pull all videos” - If you select this option, all videos updated in your JW account will be submitted to Rev for English captions. If you would also like global subtitles for your videos, you will need to select default languages in the “Subtitles” field.
  • “Pull only videos tagged with ‘rev’” - If you select this option, you will need to manually tag videos in your JW account to submit them to Rev for English captions or global subtitles. See the selection below for instructions on tagging your videos.


Click “Link” to finish setting up your JW Player integration. Your Rev account is now connected to your JW Player account and you are ready to submit JW Player videos to Rev.

If you selected "Pull only videos tagged with ‘rev’”, read this article to get started.
