If you wish to create or edit your own closed captions file, you can do so using a text editor such as Notepad++ or VS Code. Note: word processing software such as MS Word is not suitable for creating caption files.
Viostream supports captions formatted in accordance with the WebVTT standard. A WebVTT file in general consists of a sequence of text segments associated with a time-interval, called a cue.
A sample WebVTT file is shown below. Each cue consists of a start time, a finish time and the text to display
WEBVTT 00:00.000 --> 00:03.000 This is the first caption 00:03.000 --> 00:08.000 Captions can be multi-line 00:08.000 --> 00:15.000 However, the player will automatically insert line-breaks where required, therefore manual line breaks are not recommended
Be sure to save your files with a .vtt extension so that you can upload them to Viostream.
