Caption Files Downloadable as SRT and VTT, not just txt

Anyone hoping to use Panopto videos in another system--and needing captions--need to be able download the caption files. Currently, caption files only download as txt, which then requires users to convert to another format in another tool. Panopto can add that functionality easily, especially since "Panopto supports INGESTION of *.srt, *.ashx, *.vtt, and *.dxfp files as captions for a video."

So, I'd love to see Panopto allow for exporting or downloading captions in those formats, too. (vtt and srt are highest priority).

Thanks!

  • @Dann Hurlbert I agree that having the captions download as .srt or .vtt would be super helpful.

    Currently, when I tell people how to edit their captions offline, I tell them to change the file extension from .txt to .srt prior to uploading the edited file. This workflow is solid, but it always results in a "are you sure you want to do this?" prompt and it's just an odd thing to tell people, especially if they aren't very tech savvy.

  • OMG yes! Seems like a simple and logical request.
