Optional information

What caption file format do I need?

The Scenarist (.scc) format is used for submitting to VoD stores like iTunes and Hulu. It's also used commonly in Broadcast TV and for editing in software such as Adobe Premier Pro and Final Cut Pro. Rev supports the 29.97 fps frame rate.

The SubRip (.srt) format is a common choice for Youtube and Vimeo videos. It's also extremely easy to edit captions in this format - you can open a .srt file in Notepad or TextEdit.

The MacCaption (.mcc) format is used for high-definition Broadcast TV. MacCaption is the only file format that can encode both 608 and 708 closed captioning. Rev supports all MCC frame rates - 24, 25, 30, 30DF, 50, 60, and 60DF.

The TTML format (also known as XML or DFXP) is gaining in popularity. The FCC has declared TTML the official caption file format for broadcasters publishing video online: https://www.smpte.org/news-events/news-releases/fcc-declares-smpte-closed-captioning-standard-online-video-content-safe.

Don't stress about it. If you change your mind later, we're happy to provide your caption files in a different format, for no extra charge.

What caption and subtitle file formats can you provide?
Do your captions meet the FCC requirements?

Yes, we guarantee our caption files meet FCC requirements for open and closed captioning of web and tv video. Our caption files meet Section 508 requirements for video captioning.

What is the difference between closed captions and subtitles?

Closed captions are intended for deaf or hard-of-hearing viewers. They communicate the video's spoken content and "atmospherics", which are sound effects that are part of the story.

Subtitles are intended for viewers who can hear the audio, but can't understand the language spoken. They usually translate the video's spoken and written language into the viewer's language.

Both captions and subtitles use the same file formats, such as .srt and .scc. Read more about file formats.
