DASH packaging currently supports WebVTT for subtitles, which is supported by Shaka and Exoplayer, but some of the other DASH enabled players (smart TVs etc) only support TTML in mp4 envelopes. Is this form of subtitling in the roadmap for VoS?

Hi Wil, thank you for inquiry. As of today, this form of subtitling is not supported in VOS, however we can support it in future releases. 2 questions for you:

  • Can you provide a time-frame in which you would need this?
  • How would you want us to carry the 2 subtitles? In 2 packages, or package with both, and let the client filter?
