How to download the auto-generated transcript on any video?
I know there are ways to download the transcipt from videos where the creator has enabled captions. However, clearly Panopto has auto-generated transcripts for all videos since we are able to search through the transcripts. It would be a huge convenience to users if these auto-generated transcripts could also be used for subtitles or could be downloadable, even when the creator does not explicitly enable this.
So this is a feature request, it would be great if we could have access to full transcripts of all videos in some form. But more importantly, I'm wondering if there is a way that this can be done now using some possibly secret API endpoint?
Thank you for your inquiry.
Panopto already provided a functionality to download captions data. Panopto is not planning to pursue providing a capability to download a raw search index data which is generated by automatic machine caption but not used as a viewer visible captions of the videos.
If you have any specific application in your mind with that data, please bring that to your Panopto administrator and discuss. Panotpo administrator may further discuss with Panopto customer satisfaction advocates about that topic as a formal feature request.
