Comment:
This, for me is definately the way to go with text tracks. Since the text is
embedded in the media file "In-Band" it means the content never gets lost.
This is how we treat audio with video and is how DVD treated text too. Some
devices such as iOS may not support another layer of external text which is
another reason why this is such a great method for covering all playback
methods. At the end of the day if a user can view via browser, download, move
to another device and the text track follows just as audio and video do, then
why break them apart ? That's my penny's worth.
