Fluid Boxes AND closed captioning... can I have it all?

I have a project that must be in fluid boxes, and the project itself is basically a video player.

Am I understanding the following correctly?

An event video can be in a fluid box, but cannot have closed captioning. And a Multi-Slide Synchronized Video is able to have closed captioning but cannot be placed in a fluid box?

I'd like to have a video contained within a fluid box that has closed captioning.

Any workaround to this problem?

No, ,I even don't see why you use Fluid Boxes for a video player at all?


Closed captioning is only possible for a video which is synchronized with the timeline, same as for audio, is only possible with slide audio because that is synchronized with the timeline as well. That is logical (at least to me, but I am a timeline freak). Event video is totally independent of that timeline, cannot even be controlled by pauses on the timeline. For that reason it has its own control panel, and you can have multiple event videos on one slide, which can have different durations. Same for a multistate object with video: has to be event video since the duration of the videos can be different.

Fluid Boxes have several limitations. Are you sure that you cannot use a Rescalable, non-responsive project?

I really appreciate you taking the time to reply!

I'm trying to build a Lynda.com-style chaptered video for a course. This will be embedded into Canvas and be accessed on a wide range of devices which is why I'm trying to tackle it with fluid boxes (see screenshots). I'm not sure the rescalable, non-response project will get me there.. but not having closed captions is not an option so maybe I need to rethink this whole layout.

Again, thanks for your time!!

See the reason for the fluid boxes. Breakpoint views is an alternative, have never used CC for them and it is a lot more work than Fluid Boxes.

In either of the layouts you show it would appear that playing the content in Landscape mode would be best.  If that is the case, I don't really see the case for using any form of responsive design over just using normal scaling design.  You'll save yourself a lot of angst.
