What am I doing wrong?
I followed all of the directions in the code, and applied it to my project, but when I click the CC button in the controls, the subtitles do not show up. Here is my code:
<video controls> <source src="video.mp4" type="video/mp4"> <track src="video.vtt" kind="subtitles" srclang="en" label="English" default> </video>
WEBVTT FILE 0 00:08:00.000 --> 00:20:00.000 HELLO!!!
I would appreciate any help.

Hi! Your captions are in the wrong place. It is confusing! The way it works is first comes the milliseconds, then the seconds, then the minutes, then the hours. So in your code, 00:08:00.000 --> 00:20:00.000, you are accidentally saying to display "HELLO!" at 8 minutes through 20 minutes which is to long if you are doing the video that is provided.
This should fix the captions. Hope this Helps!
