First let me start off by saying I have recently implemented the SMPTE-TT plugin supplied with OSMF and it's really great! This is nearly broadcast quality captioning in a web player!
One thing I would like to do is prevent my control rack from going over the captions when it is displayed (it autohides after short period).
I can't figure out if I should set some Layout metadata for the caption plugin, or what the deal is. Any advice would be appreciated!
Not seen that plugin! I saw the one to parse and generate captioning events, but nothing for display (so I cooked up one of my own). Will do a quick search to see if I can find it.
LayoutMetadata isn't conditional, so I imagine that you either need to set the caption layoutMetadata to show where the controls won't or to listen for caption show / hide events and modify the layoutMetadata programmatically accordingly.
Thanks for the feedback Gaius!
Appreciate the pointers and will hopefully be able to figure it out at some point!
