Step 2: Place Orders

免费成人在线视频 Now that you’ve successfully used your keys to retreive your order history, we’re ready to start placing orders.

The process of placing orders is the same across all Rev service lines - it does not matter whether you’re placing an order for Transcription, Captions or Foreign Subtitles.

You specify the service line by using either caption_options or transcription_options in the body of the request. In the examples below, we are placing caption orders.

Below we cover different ways to place orders:

  1. Submitting an order using a public URL or URI
  2. Submitting an order using a local file

1. Submitting an order using a public URL or URI

Media that’s embedded on a webpage (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.) can be submitted directly to POST /orders using external_link

In the example below, we use a YouTube URL to create a caption order. We also specify that we would like the order optimized for the SubRip file format by using output_file_formats. Please note: specifying the output_file_formats is not the same as requesting those formats for download - we’ll cover that later in the Retrieve Completed Files step.

curl -i -X POST \
  http://my-louisvuittonhandbags.com/api/v1/orders \
  -H 'Authorization: Rev [ClientApiKey]:[UserAPIKey]' \
  -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  -d '{
         "sandbox_mode": true,
         "caption_options": {
          "inputs": [
             {
                "external_link": "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E0arJC0CJ7k"
             }
          ],
          "output_file_formats": [
             "SubRip"
          ]
       }
    }'

2. Submitting a local file to POST /inputs

Submitting local media file is a two step process. First you use POST /inputs to send the file to Rev.

免费成人在线视频 In the example below, replace [INSERT FILE PATH HERE], keeping the '@' sign. If you need a small sample video, you can download one .

curl -i -X POST \
  http://my-louisvuittonhandbags.com/api/v1/inputs \
  -H 'Authorization: Rev [ClientApiKey]:[UserAPIKey]' \
  -H 'Content-Type: video/mp4' \
  -H 'content-disposition: attachment; filename="filename.mp4"' \
  --data-binary '@[INSERT FILE PATH HERE]'

免费成人在线视频 After submitting to POST /inputs, you should receive a response similar to the one below.

HTTP/1.1 201 Created
Cache-Control: no-cache
Content-Length: 0
Date: Fri, 18 May 2018 17:23:45 GMT
Expires: -1
Location: urn:rev:inputmedia:RXVwbG9hZHMvMjAxOC0wNS0xNi8yY2UxYWFmNS04ZasdfQ4NzMtOGRmMC05Y2I2ZDkwN2ViNzIvbGVnb3ZpZGVvLm1wNA

X-MiniProfiler-Ids: ["00109bf4-bcf5-41af-92e5-0150703b8a4f"]

The relevant parts of the response are in bold above.

  • 201 Created tells us we posted the file to Rev successfully.
  • Location gives the URI for the file we just posted to Rev.

Now we’re ready for the second step — taking the URI and using it with POST /orders.

The command below places a Caption order with .srt as the file output type. Rev is usually (but not always) able to auto-detect length of the file. In this example, we added video_length_seconds免费成人在线视频 to the body of the request.

curl -i -X POST \
  http://my-louisvuittonhandbags.com/api/v1/orders \
  -H 'Authorization: Rev [ClientApiKey]:[UserAPIKey]' \
  -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  -d '{
       "sandbox_mode": true,
       "caption_options": {
          "inputs": [
             {
                "video_length_seconds": 6,
                "uri": "urn:rev:inputmedia:RXVwbG9hZHMvMjAxOC0wNS0xNi8yY2UxYWFmNS04ZasdfQ4NzMtOGRmMC05Y2I2ZDkwN2ViNzIvbGVnb3ZpZGVvLm1wNA"
             }
          ],
          "output_file_formats": [
             "SubRip"
          ]
       }
    }'

Receiving a response from Rev

免费成人在线视频 Regardless of what type of media you submit to Rev, all orders will receive a HTTP response similar to the one below:

Cache-Control: no-cache
Content-Length: 0
Date: Wed, 16 May 2018 19:09:05 GMT
Expires: -1
Location: http://my-louisvuittonhandbags.com/api/v1/orders/CP0938707965 
Pragma: no-cache
Server: Microsoft-IIS/10.0
X-MiniProfiler-Ids: ["f38e8e42-e513-4c96-9bd7-a17f412593ad"]
X-Powered-By: ASP.NET

The Location response contains a URL to the order that was created in Rev. The last part of the URL CP0948053481 is the Order Number.

Congrats! You’ve placed your first order using the Rev API.
