This month we are announcing four new features that will make your videos more accessible, better sounding and more secure.
On April 30th several important regulations go into effect that will improve the accessibility of Internet video. To help our customers make their video more accessible and comply with the new law, Zencoder is announcing support for closed captioning on Apple HLS video from an external SCC file or an embedded caption track. Contact us for more information.
