About the client


Flixster is an American social movie site for discovering new movies, learning about movies, and meeting others with similar taste in movies. The site allows users to view movie trailers as well as learn about new and upcoming movies in the box office.

The situation


Flixster wanted to apply FCC requirements and deliver caption content to their customers for their movie titles. Besides adding standard features, additional customization was required in order to bring their users the maximum flexibility and control of how the captions were presented to them.

Our solution


The objective of this project was to create a new feature that Flixster could implement in their current web player that would allow customized, stylized closed captions. Truelogic worked side-by-side with the Flixster team on the features description, technical specifications with the solution approach, design, testing and validation to supporting multiple languages using the OSMF plugin core library. Truelogic also ensured delivery of a solution that addressed all of the FCC requirements for caption visualization on digital video content.
