Would it be something required in my video player?
My goal is to have my videos on my page/post, with captions turned on initially, with the option to turn them off. Currently they are uploaded to my hosting site but I intend to host them offsite once I figure out this step. Then I need to determine which video hosting site can accommodate the process.
I appreciate your time and help in responding to my questions, this is the closest I've come to working this out. :)
You need to set captions to show on top video; you need to specify both captions and closed captions in production wizard.
The closed captions options makes the caption able to be turned off [using a CC button in video controls].
Perhaps give it another try.
From an article on how to add subtitles (SRT, ASS, SSA, IDX, and SUB, etc included) to MP4, I learn that:
There are many kinds of subtitle formats: SRT, ASS, SSA, IDX, and
SUB, etc today. One of the most widely used formats for subtitles is
SRT (SubRip), which is supported by most video players, subtitle editing
tools and some hardware home media players. Even YouTube supports .srt
SSA (Sub Station Alpha), is a subtitle format used by the famous subtitle editor, SubStation Alpha. It has an enormous amount of options including Karaoke, audio effects, graphic drawing etc. ASS, similar to SSA, is another popular subtitle format.
SubViewer (.sub) files are the native subtitle format of the SubViewer utility. SUB file usually comes from DVD subtitle, which contains subtitle images. Where there is a SUB file, there must be an IDX file. IDX file is a text file which specify which image in SUB file should be showed at specific time. SubViewer became popular when support for it was included in the DivX media player. On August 28 2008, YouTube included support for SubViewer and SubRip, allowing existing videos to be retroactively subtitled.
It easily helps to:
Add subtitles to MP4 like add SRT to MP4, add SSA to MP4, add SUB and IDX to MP4 and more;
Add subtitles to MP4 as well as keep the original video format or change MP4 to MOV, AVI, WMV, MKV, FLV, ASF, WebM, 3GP, etc;
Also can attach subtitles to almost all kinds of video clips like MOV, AVI, WMV, MKV, FLV, ASF, AVHCD, MOD, MTS, MXF, WebM, SWF and more;
