Closed Captioning and QuickTime Files

MAGpie also produces two output files when exporting for QuickTime: a SMIL file that will play the video and captions together in QuickTime Player, and a text file containing the captions and synchronization information formatted in QuickTime format.

As with RealVideo, the SMIL file I produced for this interview loaded and played normally in QuickTime Player—no muss, no fuss. However, some producers like to add the captions directly into the MOV file containing the QuickTime video, resulting in one MOV file rather than three. Accomplishing this is a three-step process and you’ll need QuickTime Professional to show you how ($29.99, direct from Apple).
