Fully support subtitles, captions, transcripts, lyrics, etc. for both playback and editing.
Subtitles, captions, transcripts, synchronized lyrics, and the like are very important parts of both video and audio.
If I have a folder in OneDrive with video or audio in it and an identically named (but with a different extension) subtitle file, I definitely want the subtitles to be presented when I (or anyone else) stream that video from OneDrive.
This is also important for videos and audio which have subtitles, captions, or lyrics embedded within them - either encoded as part of the media stream or muxed into the same file container. (WMV and WMA both have this possibility, among other formats.)
YouTube provides a free simple way to syncronize a transcript of what is spoken in a video to the timing at which it is spoken in the media. I want no less from OneDrive. This is more about subtitle creation and editing, but it is just as important to me as displaying them when playing the media.
Thanks for this great feedback! While we don’t have specifics to share for now, wanted to update that video captions and transcript support are things we’re actively thinking through.

I also have a much simpler pb with OnedriveMediaplayer. I have a video with embedded subtitles which i share to friends. When they view it on their mobiles all ok. But on Windows, the subtitles are hidden by the MediaPlayer toolbar. I requested help from Onedrive but no answer from OneDrive on this subject yet.
Could anyone help me?
I posted a German video with embedded English subtitles that can be chosen if played on any media player on the computer. However, when I uploaded this file to OneDrive, only the German sound track can be heard while streaming. There is currently no mechanism for selecting the English subtitle track. This is of importance to link recipients who may like to watch the video streaming with the subtitles. At present, they have to download the entire file. Please fix.
This is SO important, especially that Google Drive already have all these functions, and very well.
quite important topic, especially as google drive supports srt-files. so, maybe combine this topic with the one regarding .srt / .sub files:
