Subtitles in Cloudflare Stream Video

Hi Everyone,

I am looking to integrate multiple subtitles on the video which is hosted on Stream and option to select video subtitle as English, French, German Etc. But i can’t find any working example on the forum

Appreciate your help looking for a positive response from the community.

Thanks in advance!

Hi there, you can upload captions 2 ways:

Option 1. Uploading Captions using the Dashboard
Simply click on an uploaded video and goto the Captions tab:

Option 2. Uploading Captions using the API
You can find the docs here for uploading captions:

Once uploaded, the captions should appear in the player within a few minutes. If you are using a 3rd party player, as long as the player supports captions, they should be rendered (Stream includes the caption in the video manifest file.)


I think the question is if there’s a way to allow for multiple caption files so the viewer can pick a language.

Yes, you can upload multiple caption files for different languages. The player will let the user switch between languages with caption files.
