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 > Captions, do one of the following:

    • If the video contains an embedded caption file, select Embedded Caption. Skip to step 5.
    • If you have an external caption file, select Sidecar Caption. A form appears.

  5. Complete your site’s workflow and publish the video.
