WebKit's HTML5 <video> player is a nice one. Let's get caption/subtitle-track support in there.
Comment 1 Eric Carlson 2010-08-09 10:13:45 PDT
Caption and subtitle support will be in the HTML5 spec fairly soon, see http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/video.html#timed-tracks a proposal.
Comment 2 Eric Carlson 2010-08-09 10:16:19 PDT
Note also that we already have WebKit specific caption properties on HTMLMediaElement: webkitHasClosedCaptions and webkitClosedCaptionsVisible. These are implemented in Safari 5 on OS X and Windows.
Comment 3 Anna Cavender 2011-02-01 17:02:02 PST
I'll be using this as a master bug to keep track of the upcoming implementation of <track>.
