    Default Stutter HDS Playback with Captions Enabled


    I have enabled close caption for HDS, HLS, RTMP for VOD playback. Also, placed a or sample.ttml in the content directory. To test the functionality I have tried Flowplayer, Strobe Media Player and Wowza Test player. The flowplayer and Strobe Media Player does display the captions.

    While performing my tests I have found that with HDS I see the Stuttered playback. The captions gets displayed, then video pauses for couple of seconds, then it resumes. The Wowza Test player also doesn't play the video correctly (the same stutter playback can be noticed).

    Next, I tried the HLS and RTMP playback and found both work smoothly. The wowza version I am using is 4.0.5.

    Also, once I disable caption from wowza server, it plays HDS smootly.

    So in summary HDS with Captions Enabled is not playing smoothly.

    Please let me know, how to address it ?

    Hi Puneet,

    Can you please send your findings to and include a zipped up copy of the following,
    [install-dir]/content/(closed caption files you've created)

    This will generate a ticket for you and we will investigate from there.
