I used the Media/Video/YouTube option to insert the URL for a video, then exported as html5, SCORM 1.2

On my LMS, YouTube CC does not show, although it is enabled and works fine on YouTube.

Question 1: Is YouTube CC not available as part of SCORM? If not, is there a way to enable it?

Question 2: In a past forum, someone mentioned embedding YouTube. This may solve the problem above, but I don't see a way to do it. Any tips on how to solve the CC problem?

Adding YouTube videos in the method you mentioned is great for creating interactive videos but not so great for closed captioning as you can't add your own and users can't access what is available from YouTube. If you want users to be able to access the closed captions you might want to use the YouTube learning interaction instead. It has some limitations but your learners can access the YouTube controls. Here's a video about that feature that might be helpful.

You will probably find that YouTube is preventing content from their site being displayed on someone else's domain and that's why the content is blocked.

Vimeo or some other video hosting solution may be a better option as they are more willing to allow content displayed elsewhere as long as you are paying for their subscription.

We are paying for YouTube Premium so as to not have advertising. And yet they block CC - interesting.

Thanks

Sorry.  Just noticed you said it was only the CC not displaying.

That might be a different issue connected with the fact that the YouTube CC is not embedded inside the actual MP4 but is generated via a different method. 

Talk to the YouTube support people about that.  Maybe their Help files will give you a clue.

Got YouTube CC to work by choosing the Interactive video option in Captivate.

Now another question - If I embed a video in Captivate, is there a way of uploading the subtitles file I generated in YouTube to Captivate? The Youtube format is .sbv, but I can convert that to .srt, .vtt, etc.

Doing so would save me a lot of work.

Thanks. N

As far as I know you will have to type them in yourself. You could fill out a feature request to a way to import those files. I asked for this a year or so ago but not so far. The more people ask for new abilities the more likely they are to provide.

Thanks - and you vids are great!

What you suggested seems to work - the CC now shows, but strangely when I publish the SCORM package the video shows for a few seconds, then disappears from the screen.

Question - Can you do 1-1 tutorials (Skype or Adobe Connect) where you can walk me through? I have a specific project for which the client has requested a SCORM package. Happy to pay whatever your hourly rate is.

Cheers, Neil

Hi Paul,

 

Was there a final answer about whether the lastest Captivate (11.5.1.449) can access YouTube's closed captions? As a test, I tried adding a YT video that has closed captions, via the Video > Media > YouTube option (as the YT Learning Interaction is no longer available), but when I preview it in HTML and press the CC button in the nav bar, no captions show.

 

Is there something else I should be doing or is accessing YT's CC's through Captivate no longer available?

 

BTW, my final video is a recording of a Zoom webinar that provided both the video file as well as the .vtt file. Does YouTube have a way of importing that .vtt file for CC's?

 

Thanks!

 

Brett
