Adding captions to videos

You can deliver captions along with your videos. As visitors watch a video, they also see the captions you provide.

To add captions to a video:

  1. Acquire the caption file if available.

  2. Create a new video as described in Submitting a video to AWS Elemental.

  3. Under Main, under Main, under Caption, click add_circle_outline. A form appears.

  4. If the video contains an embedded caption file, select Embedded Caption. Skip to step 7.

  5. If you have an external caption file, select Sidecar Caption. A form appears.
