Re: Subtitles roVideoScreen

I'm also having this same problem as destruk. I can't override the global caption settings. I'm also serving .mp4 files.

I'm going off this blog post, which says it is possible to override the caption settings locally on the video screen.

Anyone else had any luck with this or have any insight in the last year?

Re: Subtitles roVideoScreen

Just tried with a .mkv file as well, still unable to override the global capitons settings by using showSubtitle(true) on the roVideoScreen object.

Re: Subtitles roVideoScreen

Well, I think I found my problem...

Was trying to call showSubtitle on a roVideoScreen.

Unfortunately for me, showSubtitle is not available on roVideoScreen. It is a method on the roCaptionScreen component which is used with roVideoPlayer.

Back the drawing board...
