Closed Captioning works for me on Firefox only, but not on Chrome or Safari. Does anyone know how to fix it?

Everything works beautifully in Firefox, but Chrome and Safari do not display the CC tag in the controls section. Any help would be appreciated.

I think this may be a simple issue of compatibility between the web browsers.

What code are you using to try and show the captions. Are you using the recommended WebVTT format? Here's a very recent article on Video and HTML5 which will hopefully help you! :-)

Thanks Jonathan! I figured out that if I ran the page through MAMP locally, it worked. It was because google and safari block the CC on local environments without running through a server. :)
