Check if a session has captions (2019-11-21)

I'm wondering if there is a way of checking given a session guide if it's already has captions.

Right now I'm doing it this way, but this is far from optimal:

def sessionHasCaptions(guid):

sessionAuthInfo = processvideos.getSessionauthinfo()

sessionclient = processvideos.getSessionclient()


sessionclient.service.UploadTranscript(sessionAuthInfo, guid, "wrong format should be uploaded ok but not processed")

return False


return True

Hi Cristiano,

Thank you for asking it. Unfortunately, we do not provide the information you asked from our public API (either SOAP or REST). When we provide our caption related feature as REST API in the future, we'll make sure that may be retrieved from there.
