Adding subtitles to the dash.js player

Learn about Dash, TTML and EBU-TT-D

In this presentation, Solène Buet will detail how W3C TTML subtitles can be used with MPEG DASH streaming, and how it was tested with the EBU-TT-D standard (TTML-based).

Solène implemented EBU-TT-D subtitling with the dash.js reference player.

Solène will explain what TTML-based subtitles are, and how they can be retrieved from a MPEG DASH stream for rendering in the player.

The presentation will cover the process followed by a TTML-based subtitle: from its recovering, to its parsing and its displaying.

You will get an insight in the very hot topic of subtitling through streaming technologies.
