Canvas - How do I add captions to an external video?
If you are the video owner for a video hosted on a supported third-party media site, or if you already have an online link to a supported video type, you can create caption files for external videos.
- You cannot add a closed-captioning file to an online video if you are not the owner.
- If you view a video in the Canvas by Instructure app, iOS devices can display captions created with WebVTT files. If you cannot view video captions on an iOS device, the caption type is not supported.
