Closed captions in Interactive Video
Submitted by jimbuell on Thu, 03/29/2018 - 04:29
I'm enjoying the capability to closed-caption Interactive Video sources using .vtt files. However, I'd rather not have those captions display by default. Is there any way to specify that the video should begin playing with captions off, rather than on, until the user specifically clicks on the "CC" icon and chooses to view the captions? The attached image shows the default behavior.

Hi Jim,This is not possible
This is not possible as of the moment. Although I think it is a valid request. Also I think a setting to turn it on/off at the start of the video would be a good route to take.
Note: I have move this post to the Feature Request forum.

Lack of captions is a show-stopper. It's a legal requirement for US P-16 public education. Kaltura, Panopto, Zoom, and others use AI caption engines.

Hi rgibson1!H5P supports
H5P supports captions. Videos hosted on YouTube use the captions that are added there, and for videos from other sources you can add them yourself by uploading a file containing the captions in WebVTT format.
Please note that H5P is not a video platform such as Kaltura, Panopto or Zoom. Anyway: Could you please provide us with a link to the relevant documents stating that captions need to be generated in an automated fashion?

Hi! I used a Youtube video with closed captions. But I didn't see captions after I embedded the video to H5P (I was using H5P.org for testing). Is there any settings I should change to enble the captions? Thanks!

Hi Elodev!Did the video
Did the video provide closed captions specified for a language or just the automatically generated captions? I am pretty sure that YouTube's API does not give you access to the latter, but you can use them to create language specific closed captions.

Hi ELODEV,YouTube does not
YouTube does not serve the automatically created captions to external players. You'll have to manually create the captions for the specific language on YouTube.
