How do I add captions to an external video as an instructor?

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.

Once you have uploaded your video and created captions, learn how to view video captions.

Notes:

  • 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 in an iOS device, the caption type is not supported.
