Thread: Captions for Android

  1. #1

    Default Captions for Android

    Is there a Wowza guide for setting up captions for streaming to Android devices? I've looked, but apparently my search fu is off today.

    I'm successfully streaming captions for HLS and RTMP, but I can't figure out the right combination of Wowza config, files on my server, and chicken entrails that will produce captions for Android. Any help is much appreciated!

    Closed captioning support for streaming via Android is still not there.
    Your best option will be to use HLS as that matures. Longtail Video's JW player 6.5 and above is rolling in
    more of their own HLS support and with it better closed captioning support for more devices.
