    Hey everyone, I've recently picked up a government client and all the video content they post online is required to have subtitles/closed captioning. I've never used any captioning software so I have no idea what to look for. Is there one prevailing program/method I should into?

    I'm using Premiere CS5.5 for editing.

    Do you need subtitles, closed captioning or both? Subtitles is text over picture where as closed captioning is actually a signal embedded in the video stream.

    I don't know if it will work in your situation but check out MacCaption.

    Well for now, whatever agencies have produced their videos have embedded the captions into YouTube using transcripts so you can turn them on and off. For some videos, though, I can foresee the need for hardcoded subtitles. So it'd be nice to have software to do both.

    Bah, this is so annoying.
