A great media library starts with great content, which is why we've always focused on making it as simple as possible to add media to your MediaCore library. Today we’re making this even easier with the release of a completely re-designed Media Uploader, which also adds support for closed captioning.

The new Media Uploader replaces the old upload interface on the admin 'Add Media' page, on your site's 'Upload' page (if enabled), and on the MediaCore Chooser's media uploader seen across all of our plugins and LMS integrations.

Alongside a streamlined, unified interface, the new Media Uploader adds the ability to upload a caption file to any video, displays correctly and consistently on smaller screens and brings drag and drop support for adding media via your browser. 

Closed captioning

Being able to offer video captions and subtitles is important for accessibility and has been one of the most common feature requests we’ve received from customers. With the new Media Uploader it’s easy to upload SRT and WebVTT caption files alongside your videos. Once a video is captioned, viewers can toggle closed captions on and off using the video player’s ‘CC’ button. For more information on creating and uploading caption files click here
