How to add subtitles?

Editions: Professional, Enterprise, Ultimate, Corporate
Versions: 3.5.0+
Player: HTML5

The VIMP HTML5 player supports subtitles in WebVTT format. According .vtt files must be created externally and can be uploaded within the edit medium form.

You can add multiple .vtt files with different languages to each medium.

Within the player the visitor can select the required language by clicking the CC button.

A .vtt file should look as follows (support of HTML tags depends on the browser used):


00:00:03.500 --> 00:00:05.000
This is a demonstration

00:00:06.000 --> 00:00:09.000
of the <b>subtitle capabilities</b>

00:00:11.000 --> 00:00:14.000
of the <u><b>VIMP</b> HTML5 Player</u>.

00:00:14.500 --> 00:00:18.000
Subtitles can be imported

00:00:19.000 --> 00:00:24.000
via a text file in <b>WebVTT</b> format.

00:00:24.500 --> 00:00:26.000
You can add subtitles in

00:00:26.500 --> 00:00:29.500
an unlimited number of languages.

00:00:30.000 --> 00:00:34.000
It's so easy!
