We’re pleased to announce preliminary subtitle support in SproutVideo. This is part of a multi-phase release. The first phase includes subtitle support for our Adobe Flash based player. The next phase will add support for subtitles on iOS 6 devices and the last phase will add support for subtitles in our HTML5 player and hopefully Android devices.

We’ve chosen to go with the emerging WebVTT format which almost all web browsers have adopted for timed text support going forward. To read more about how to use Subtitles on SproutVideo, read our help article here: http://sproutvideo.com/help/playing_videos/subtitles
