  • This CTP does not support captions directly. However, you can lay XAML text elements on playing video and do just that.

  • Do you have any info if subtitling will be supported on the release build? Is it possible to get the subtitles from the media player object, just as you would if you embedded the ActiveX-object in a HTML-page? Do maybe also know if the subtitles are displayed on a media extender (XBox360)?

  • Hello Barak...

     

    I think this will layering (zOrder?) will make captioning & subtitling very easy to incorporate into the development of RIAs.
