Script of the Day: Captionator
A script to super-impose subtitles over HTML5 video players
Under the hood, Captionator uses a grid system to show subtitles in the desired position. This means that captions can be placed anywhere on the video canvas, so vertically displayed alphabets (eg: Japanese) will work as well.
From the subtitle's size, color and weight, anything about the text itself can be modified, and even different styles can be applied to individual words.
The script is framework agnostic and will work anywhere, being limited only by the browsers that support (or not) HTML5 video.
Captionator development is handled via GitHub.
