Setting Up Captions in AWS Elemental MediaConvert Jobs

To include captions in your job, follow these steps in the order listed:

Specifying the Timecode Source

For your captions to correctly synchronize with your video, you must set both the input and job-wide timecode source to Start at 0, or you must set both to Embedded.

Note

If you set both to Embedded, the timecodes in your captions files must begin at the same time as the timecodes that are embedded in your input video.

To specify values for the timecode source settings

  1. On the Create job page, in the Job pane on the left, under Job settings, choose Settings.

  2. In the Timecode configuration pane, for Source, choose Start at 0 or Embedded.

  3. On the Create job page, in the Job pane on the left, under Inputs, choose an input.

  4. In the Video selector pane, for Timecode source, choose the same value that you set for Job settings, Timecode configuration.
