Editions: Professional v3, Enterprise v3, Ultimate, Enterprise, Campus
Versions: 3.5.0+

Player: HTML5

The VIMP HTML5 player supports subtitles in WebVTT format

According .vtt files must be created externally and can be uploaded within the edit medium form.

You can add multiple .vtt files with different languages to each medium.

Within the player the visitor can select the required language by clicking the CC button.

A .vtt file should look as follows (support of HTML tags depends on the browser used):


00:00:03.500 --> 00:00:05.000 
This is a demonstration

00:00:06.000 --> 00:00:09.000 
of the <b>subtitle capabilities</b>

00:00:11.000 --> 00:00:14.000 
of the <u><b>VIMP</b> HTML5 Player</u>.

00:00:14.500 --> 00:00:18.000 
Subtitles can be imported

00:00:19.000 --> 00:00:24.000 
via a text file in <b>WebVTT</b> format.

00:00:24.500 --> 00:00:26.000 
You can add subtitles in

00:00:26.500 --> 00:00:29.500 
an unlimited number of languages.

00:00:30.000 --> 00:00:34.000 
It's so easy!

Important: in order to display umlauts correctly the .vtt file has to be saved in UTF-8 format.
