Captions in Video Downloads
There are thousands of videos in the Media Library available to stream and/or download. Most of these videos have captioning available while streaming, so you can see the text being spoken as you watch. You can also access those captions when you download and play the video on a personal computer.
To view captions in video downloads, you will need to download and install the video player VLC. (Sorry, neither Windows Media Player nor QuickTime support captions.) VLC is available for Windows, Mac OS, Linux, Android, and iOS.
Once VLC is installed, open your video download and navigate to Subtitles, then Subtitle Track, and then Track 1 (English). The captions will begin playing with the video.
See “How to Show Videos without an Internet Connection” for more information on downloading and playing videos from the Media Library.
