Once you have logged onto the IBM Video Streaming Dashboard, a channel is needed to stream or to upload and view content. To get started click the + sign under the Channel section to Create a New Channel.
Next, give your channel a title which will appear on the Channel page and in the Dashboard.
Choosing the primary language for your videos supported by the channel will auto generate captions from the IBM Watson Speech to Text to be on display after your broadcasted video has fully been processed. You may choose to automatically publish captions, but it is best practice to edit and spell check the webVTT captions for accuracy before publishing.

Once finished, Click Create on the bottom right hand side of the menu.
