MEDIA SERVER - WORKING WITH CAPTIONED VIDEO
This section will provide an overview about how to edit caption files you received through Sacramento State’s Captioning Service and how to create and test hyperlinks that point to your captioned video on the media server.
Editing Caption Files
Captioned video that is posted to the media server, must be in real media/real video format (see Video Guidelines for Captioning).
When you submit your video/audio for captioning through our campus Captioning Service you will receive caption files that are specific for real media/real video. These caption files should be uploaded, along with your video, to your folder on the media server. Caption files must be edited so that the resulting video displays the correct captions and for the correct duration.
Learn how to edit your caption files by following instructions in the Produce a Captioned Real Media Video quick guide.
Create Links to Captioned Video
Once you have edited and uploaded your caption files and video to your folder on the media server, the last step is to create links that point to the captioned video. You may use these links in your SacCT course, faculty website or other appropriate location for captioned video to be played back. Captioned video will open and play back in Real Player.
Follow the instructions in the Produce a Captioned Real Media Video quick guide to get started.
Please Note: If you fast forward a captioned video when playing it back, captions on the video may go out of sync or disappear. This is because the video is streamed. Try fast forwarding a few seconds at a time to avoid captions going out of sync, disappearing or freezing on screen.
