Chapter markers not working


I am using JW player wordpress plugin on my site and have been trying to add a VTT file to one of my videos.

The video is hosted on my Vimeo Pro account and plays fine through JW Player on my site's page, but in JWP dashboard when I add a .vtt file (under 'chapter' kind in 'tracks' tab, the chapters don't show up on the timeslider of the video?

I have got the Vimeo URL in my 'videos' in JWP dashboard, I have the cloud-based JW Player and the wordpress plugin all working fine, but I can't seem to get the VTT files I upload to the dashboard to work.

I followed the instructions on this page:
