    I am using wordpress 3.7.1 and use buildin mediaelements.js video support. I want to ask does this version support subtitles?

    I have a video in this page with subtitles

    http://www.enterpr1se.info/2013/06/gordon-music-station-onslaught-of-locusts/

    Here is the code

    [video width="1920" height="1080" mp4="http://www.enterpr1se.info/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/Locust-attack.mp4" captions="http://www.enterpr1se.info/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/Locust_attack_jap.srt" captions="http://www.enterpr1se.info/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/Locust_attack_eng.srt"][/video]

    But there's no control for captions.

    Is there anything I missed? Thanks

    The native WordPress video shortcode doesn't provide any support for caption or subtitle tracks. You can use the Accessible Video Library plug-in to manage videos and add subtitles and captions.

    Out of the box, it only provides support for spanish subtitles; but it's very easy to add new languages: https://www.joedolson.com/articles/2013/11/accessible-video-wordpress/
