Gallaudet University has posted Flash videos with captioning.  One of
our staff, Richard Goodrow, will be presenting on this and other
captioning issues at Streaming Media West.

You can see examples of Flash with captions at http://slcc.gallaudet.edu
and http://videolibrary.gallaudet.edu.

This is true, but it adds to dev time, server overhead, and complexity.

LOL... That's not a surprising response Andrew...

While I don't have any samples handy at this time, I previously did this
using the HiCaption extension
[http://www.adobe.com/products/flash/extensions/hicaption/], which
well and was pretty straight-forward to use.  

HiSoftware has a sample video available at:
http://www.hisoftware.com/hmccflash/hmccfl1demo.htm - quality could be a
better (Frame rate), but a decent sample of how it turned out.  Clicking
the "CC" opens and closes the caption area - nice.
