Closed Captioning online videos is easy with the CaptionSync Smart Player. The Smart Player is available for any existing Captioning or Audio Description submission. For requests submitted other than via our List of URLs feature or via integration that's URL based, you'll need to supply us with a URL to the media file, in a format we accept, and then manually generate the Smart Player instance.
Generating the Smart Player link:
- Once you have placed your media file online and the captioning request is complete, open the submission Details page, and click on Generate Smart Player Link, next to Smart Player Link:
- Add the URL to the media file and give it a title. Finally, click Generate Smart Player:
- The page will refresh with a URL to the Smart Player:

Once you've made all the changes, click Update Smart Player:
