Streaming with 608 embedded captions
A few questions regarding captions.
First, I notice that JW6 only plays CC1 (with crosstalk from CC2) but will not give the user a choice for CC3 or CC4. Is this going to be supported in future versions (JW7 on)?
Second, can we force JW to play a certain CC channel if we can only play one CC channel? Or does it have to be only CC1?
Finally, can we use a streaming webVTT sidecar file for live captions? I realize they may have problems syncing because there wont be timecode but live CCs are generally out of sync anyway, as long as its not off too much, this is acceptable. We do this for Youtube for CC and it works OKish and thought we may want to try the same with JW as it will allow us to use live captions on more than just 3 languages (we stream our events in 26 languages).
