Are captions downloadable embedded in the MP4 container?
Hello, this is quite specific:
If I view a video on the Panopto site, captions are visible and indeed editable. If I download that video, captions do not appear to be there at all, is this correct?
- I know they can be downloaded separately and am able to do this;
- Moreover, separately downloaded captions do work fine if (a) I point the MP4 player where they are; or (b) I rename them to the same name as the video, and to .srt filetype, and place in the same folder.
However, that requires some specialist knowledge, and the captions don't seem to work out of the box for the uninitiated. However, my understanding was that .mp4 is a container filetype, and that the container was capable of containing the .srt captions.
Am I mistaken, or is this feature only available depending on level of subscription, or are they actually there and I am missing something basic when I say I can't get them to work?
Many thanks in anticipation.
