Limelight: Add Closed Captions or Subtitles to Your Limelight Content

Once the file associated with your Limelight content has been processed by 3Play Media, you can download the DFXP captions file and add that to your Limelight content. Note that this is different than publishing a Limelight player on a separate webpage with the 3Play Media captions plugin. This article is a guide to adding closed captions to content directly to your Limelight Video Platform.
