Today we added a mechanism to add closed captions to video streams. This update allows attaching the "VTT" transcript file to a video to show closed captions. OpenWater captures the video recording and the captions file from Zoom.
- Today's update allows for the merging of these 2 items with a little bit of manual work
- We are continuing to do our R&D to automate this process
(Zoom sends the VTT files several hours after the video file in a way that does not clearly identify it to the recording)
I decided it made sense to roll this out now ASAP as it still saves everyone a lot of time. Prior to this update to attach captions to videos the entire video would have to be downloaded, merged with the captions and re-uploaded. This would mean 30-60 minutes of editing per video.
