    Default Live Closed Caption Client for Flash

    Hello,

    We are interested in trying out the new Live Closed Caption support using CEA-608 closed captions. I understand how to insert the captions into the RTMP stream, but I didn't see anything on how we then display these captions in Flash.

    Can you provide a list of players that are able to display these captions or an OSMF module that is able to extract the captions and render them?

    Thanks,

    -Bill

    Flowplayer, jwplayer, and OSMF require an external file (xml, srt) for closed captioning. This is fine in a VOD setup but what about viewing live? Can the captions persist for HDS/HLS players live?

    At the moment you are out on a limb with OSMF etc. Aparently there is a plugin for it which may do some of it, however JWPlayer, FlowPlayer and iOS support is the current state.

    You should still be able to use external file for live stream as you are doing for vod, if you knew what to say when.

    Or you can use onTextData events injected into the stream. Take a look at this package for more info and examples:
