Captions Not Appearing in Stream?

The transcript file / captions take a little while to generate on a Stream video. How long depends on a number of factors -- the length of the video, the complexity of the language, the number of videos lined up to get captioned at the moment. That said, if you've waited for what you think is a reasonable amount of time and still aren't seeing captions, it's possible that one of the default settings got unset.

If your captions aren't appearing, locate the video in your videos list. Go to Stream, choose My Content, and select Videos
