In a recent discussion with Ben Langhinrichs on Facebook about closed captions on our YouTube videos I decided to look into it. Ben also produced a video on how to put custom closed captions in your videos, you can check that video out here, it is a pretty good technique.
What I found interesting, well actually funny, was what the auto closed caption did for one of my videos. I watched the Searchandizing with WebSphere Commerce video and turned on closed captioning – I know see why Ben provides his own script!
We continue our video series for the CoreMedia integration with WebSphere Commerce. In this video I show how you can place the previously created Kids Promotion Banner on our home page and then schedule it to show during the month of December.
