Closed Captioning in RISE for videos
Jun 13, 2017
Hi there Heroes,
In RISE, I want to embed a video. Simple enough. Select the embed option and paste in the video embed code. Done!
The issue arises with closed captioning (CC) for certain video players. For Vimeo, it seems if the video has CC as an option, it shows up with the embed code. No problem here.
For YouTube, even when you own the YT video and have your CC settings to "always on" by default, copying a YT embed code into the embed option in RISE does not result in a YT player embedded with CC options.
There are a lot of articles on the web that suggest to have CC enabled by default on a YT embedded video, you add the HTML code cc_load_policy=1 in the appropriate location within the embed code and it will work. It does not in RISE.
Is this feature not available for RISE?
We want to be able to show CC in our videos, and since the other option of adding videos to RISE (from computer as a file) doesn't include a CC option, is there anything else we can try? Thanks.
