Captions on iOS


I want to display captions on iOS devices, which is possible according to and works fine with this code:

<video width="640" height="360" id="video" x-webkit-airplay="allow" controls src="XXXXX">
<source src="XXXXX" type="video/mp4" />
<track kind="subtitles" label="English" src="/test.vtt" srclang="eng" default />

But when I want the JW Player to display captions on iOS, it works only on iPad in Non-Fullscreen. On iPhone it doesn't show anything:

tracks: [{
file: "/test.vtt",
label: "English",
kind: "captions",
"default": true

When will you add support for captions on iOS devices?


PS: mentions "JW Player does not yet support captions on mobile devices (Android/iOS), since it's not yet possible to render them. This limitation will be removed when these devices support Text Tracks natively."
