  • Click the 'Upload caption file' button to bring up the caption uploader.
  • Click 'Browse' to find the caption file on your computer's file system. This will need to be a caption file in SRT or DXFP format.
  • Select the 'Language' from the drop down, this should be actual language the captions are in
  • Give the caption a label. This will be the displayed name for the captions, so for example it is best to label Spanish captions "Español".
