How do I view videos with captions?

Most of the videos available on the Gospel Media page can be streamed with closed-captioning. You can toggle captions on and off by clicking the CC button that appears at the bottom of the video player. Some videos also have closed-captioning in additional languages, which, if available, appear and can be selected by clicking the CC button.

If you wish to view captions in video downloads, you will need to download and install the video player VLC. (Sorry, neither Windows Media Player nor QuickTime support captions.) VLC is available for Windows, Mac OS, Linux, Android, and iOS.

Once VLC is installed, open your video download and navigate to Subtitles, then Subtitle Track, and then Track 1 (English). The captions will begin playing with the video.

If you would like to request captions for a video, let us know!
