How do I embed the captions into my video?
NEW! We now offer burned-in captions (open captions) for an additional $0.30 per minute. Learn more here. If you plan to burn the captions in yourself, read on.
The end product for captions is what is known as a sidecar file. It's a versatile, text-based file that you then add to your video by uploading the caption file to the online platform where your video is hosted. Viewers can toggle these captions on or off.
You can find instructions for adding the sidecar file to major social media platforms in this article.
