I have tested Magpie a free tool for doing manual captioning.
works fairly well for MP4 files but is somewhat labor intensive. I
understand that Camtasia Studio from Techsmith has at least some ability to
digest a transcript into captions.
I would like to add that the media deliver web application Storemedia
http://storemedia.vudat.msu.edu/ now provides a caption enabled media player
for mp3, mp4 and flv video. One can upload a caption xml file with the same
name as the uploaded media file and the player will automatically include
the caption file when linking or embedding the media.
Only tested with the DFXP format caption files which is an option for export
from Magpie and at least some other caption tools.
