Subtitles and closed captions are supported in the DASH player, which means that it is currently supported in Chrome, Firefox and Opera. We will soon be releasing an update that will provide support for Internet Explorer 11 and Edge browsers.
Adding subtitles and closed captions to a film or TV episode is straightforward. We’ve added a new menu item in the admin system as shown below.
