Does SMF player 2.5 support embedded closed captions in a wmv file?

Mar 2, 2012 at 1:38 PM

We are embedding the closed captions using Expression Encoder 4 SP 2, but we cannot make it work on the SMF player. Is this supported by the player?.
We know that we can have closed captions using external files such as SAMI or DFXP and closed captions are working fine using external files. We just would like to know if the embedded closed captions are supported and if there is any way to make it work.

Does anybody knows this?

I'm interested too.

It isn't supported to my knowledge. And the only way i can see it working is a MarkerProvider that listens for the Markers on the raw MediaElement and injects them as captions. Or the easy way of listening for the MarkerReached event directly on the MediaElement and just showing them then.

Thanks, I'll try that if the client provides me with a sample WMV file.
