Text track from origin 'file://' has been blocked from loading

My captions are not showing in Chrome and I get the error message in developer tool :

Text track from origin 'file://' has been blocked from loading: Not at same origin as the document, and parent of track element does not have a 'crossorigin' attribute. Origin 'null' is therefore not allowed access.

The captions only show in Safari and FF, meaning this is cross browser, but how do I fix it for Chrome?
