    I'm using the Microsoft Expression Encoder and it working except for getting my captioning text to appear in the center its currently appearing flush left. Do you know how I can adjust this?

    When you get to step 6., you'll need to choose a Silverlight template from the Templates panel. The default Windows Media Player template shows left-justified captions with a Serif font.

    Is there any way to embed closed captions (not create burnt in Subtitles or a separate Sidecar file) into a WMV from a Mac-based OS, and not Windows? The guidance here only applies to Windows OS.

    I am not aware of Mac-based tools for encoding captions on .wmv files. If you can transcode your file into an MP4 format, you can take advantage of our Video Encoding offer, or any of the multiple encoding programs available for the Mac. You can then use desktop players like VLC or QuickTime to watch the captions on a Windows or Mac environment.
    If you need more information, please open a ticket and I'll provide you with detailed steps.
