Kaltura closed captioning is simple using the CaptionSync-Kaltura integration. Over 150,000 companies and organizations use Kaltura’s flexible platform to enhance their websites with advanced video functionality.
Watch the video above to see how CaptionSync works using the Kaltura player, streamed from Kaltura’s online video platform. Keep in mind that when videos are transcribed and captioned using the AST CaptionSync-Kaltura closed captioning integration they become fully searchable. See this demo for an example of how you can add video search to your website (try searching for the word “web”). The search demo above is maintained by Kaltura, and may not be available at all times.
Another way to make your captions searchable, and add other interactive features at the same time, is to use the CaptionSync Smart Player with your Kaltura videos. The Smart Player adds an interactive transcript pane to captioned videos, which allows users to search within videos and jump to a particular spot. You can use the CaptionSync Smart Player at no extra cost with any videos captioned through our Kaltura integration. Below is an example of the Smart Player, providing captions and interactive features for a video hosted on Kaltura:
