Wait for your video to successfully upload. You will know if it's uploaded if you see the Preview button.
Depending on the size of your file, allow additional time for Accelevents to process the video file before it is available for preview. This can take as long as the duration of your video.
A recorded video can only be uploaded to a Main Stage or Breakout session type.
Adding Caption Files to Your Uploaded Video
Once your direct upload completes, a field to upload a caption file will appear. If you want to add caption files to your video like .srt or .vtt to your direct upload you can do so.
On Stream Provider, scroll to Caption file upload.
Click Browse and select the file from your computer.
You can only see the caption file field if there is a video already in place, without a video that field will not appear.
If you want to create a your own .vtt file you can check out this link.
For MP4 video format, .srt and .vtt works. For other video formats .srt works.
