  • Fill out video details and select 'File Upload' as the video source.
  • Add the video file.
  • In Accessibility Options, upload the WebVTT file in the Video Caption file drop area.

  • Closed captioning is available only for video file uploads. Video links should already have their own CC from their original source.
