Do someone know how to enable the subtitles in Chrome. It works in Edge but I can't make it work in Chrome.

run the video from a web server and not a local file. Chrome does not recognise the WebVTT file unless it comes from a web server.

Thanks hombah! I used the 'Live Server' extension from Visual Studio's marketplace and it worked.

Having the same problem with chrome. No button and no captions

After you resolve this with the Support folks, please come back here and post the solution for future readers.

It's the little box with the letters "CC" inside.

It's a control on the video player sub-window, and should be the same on any browser. I use Chrome myself and it works for me.

I didn't explain myself very well, sorry. I meant that exact button. I appears in the controls in Edge but it won't appear in the controls for the video in Chrome.

Like I said, it shows up in my Chrome.

You might want to talk to Support on this one.
