Separate Caption Display options for each output

Maybe we'd like to display captions in the web viewer, but have them turned off in the embedded viewer and/or the video podcast version? Would love the ability to make this coice either at session level or folder level.

    As far as I know, the display of closed captions (CC) is a user choice that's enabled at the player level at the user's discretion. The only way to force the display of CC would be to bake them into a video edit - which are actually known as open captions. The only way to not allow a user to view any CC would be to not caption the video.

    You can set a site level default for this for the interactive viewer in addition to the embedded player:

    It should also be something that can be set at the folder level, but I'm not holding my breath on that seeing that the new "Transcript Download" is a single site level on/off toggle.
