Wowza Media Server includes support for closed captioning for live streams. It can ingest caption data and convert it to the appropriate caption format for streaming using the Apple HTTP Live Streaming (Apple HLS), Adobe HTTP Dynamic Streaming (Adobe HDS), and RTMP protocols. Many player technologies, including Apple iOS devices, VideoLAN VLC player, and many set-top boxes, can display CEA-608 closed captioning data embedded in live streams. Other player technologies, such as JW Player and Flowplayer, can only display AMF onTextData captioning data.
