Closed Captioning in PlayOn Cloud

August 4, 2021 | Tracy's Blog

Closed Captioning now available on PlayOn Cloud recordings

PlayOn Cloud now has full support for CC (Closed Captioning).
If Closed Captioning is offered in the video you're recording, PlayOn Cloud captures it. When you watch your PlayOn Cloud recording you can choose to turn on (or off) Closed Captioning in the video player window.PlayOn Cloud starts at only $2.99/month AND—you can get 7 free recordings your first week for free. The PlayOn Cloud free trial will let you see first hand all of the great features PlayOn Cloud offers: Closed Captioning (when available), 1080p quality recordings (you can opt in from Settings> Video Quality), off-peak download (Settings > Download Options) and auto-download to PC/Mac with the PlayOn Cloud Downloader.

We've been working hard to make PlayOn Cloud the ideal way to stream and, it's $2 less per month than PlayOn Desktop. Unfortunately, our streaming video recorder for PCs—PlayOn Desktop—cannot handle recording with Closed Captioning, we tried—it was buggy, unreliable and creates a disappointing user experience. So if you're looking for closed captioning support for your offline viewing experience, give PlayOn Cloud a try.
