Configure the CaptionHub Live plugin for the Brightcove player

Add the CaptionHub Live plugin to a Brightcove player to add live captions

Player support

CaptionHub Live is supported in the latest versions of Brightcove Live Player versions 6 and 7. At the time of writing, player versions 6.67.5, 6.67.7 and 7.11.2, 7.13.4 are supported and recommended for best performance for captioning from CaptionHub Live. Earlier versions of 6 and 7 may work but are not supported by technical support or resolution for issues, nor are retrospectively tested. We recommend that earlier players are tested prior to production use for issues, and that in any case the latest player is used.
