close caption on RPI

Mon Aug 22, 2016 11:10 am

Hi,

Good Evening friends!!

Well, Is closed caption rendering supported for RPI platform using wpe browser or any other browser?? Or it can be rendered by creating a separate layer and displaying the caption using that layer over ongoing video streaming??

Any updates are welcomed.

You can have a look at /opt/vc/src/hello_pi/hello_font. It renders text, transparent squares and text in a separate layer that is on top of both the console and omxplayer by default.
