Captions, Subtitles, and Bears, Oh my!

Captions vs Subtitles

Closed Captions and Subtitles are similar from a technology point of view. Both require displaying text over the top of a video, timed to match the video content. A typical subtitle or caption element has a beginning time, an ending time, and the information that should be displayed during that time.

Although the technology is similar, captions and subtitles are intended for different audiences. Closed Captions help people who can not hear the audio for a video. Closed Captions usually have extra descriptions in the text for actions or music in addition to dialog. Subtitles, on the other hand, are meant to translate content into different languages.

    Sex, Language, Violence, Drugs & Alcohol, Nudity. These are the five dimensions of the Cinevee content rating system – but how do the ratings work? Where do they come from? What happens when you disagree?

    The Filmmaker’s Perspective

    When designing the Cinevee content ratings, we decided to let filmmakers rate the content of their own films. There are some standard film rating systems out there, like the MPAA single-letter ratings we are all familiar with. The challenge with these standard ratings is that it costs the filmmaker to wait and receive that rating for their film.

    Letting filmmakers rate their own films also means that we are not imposing our worldview of what acceptable content is. One person’s ‘mild’ level of language, for example, is another person’s upper limit. The content rating is from the filmmaker’s perspective. It’s their job to tell you what kind of content is in their film.

    How is Cinevee video delivered? The story starts with a filmmaker uploading video to the Cinevee website. Hopefully the resumable upload process helps that along. Then the video is encoded into several formats for delivery – from small low-bandwidth files to beautiful high-quality HD video. The video is backed up several hundred times at datacenters around the world.

    Digitalpocalypse

    Earlier this year, digital music sales overtook physical music sales for the first time. In the last 30 days, musicians on Bandcamp have made over $1,000,000. iTunes and Spotify are the #1 and #2 sources of revenue for record labels.

    It’s time for the film industry to catch up. The film industry’s approach to the coming digitalpocalypse has been to combat piracy with legal action.

    Every 10 Seconds

    Something happens every 10 seconds when a fan streams a film on Cinevee. No, we don’t kill a kitten.

    We check to see how your video is playing. How your internet connection is doing. Every 10 seconds.

    Is that a bit obsessive? Yes. It is. But it’s that important to us! Every 10 seconds we check the viewer’s internet connection, and modify the quality level of your video stream. If the internet connection suddenly slows down, we decrease the video quality so that the film keeps playing. If the connection speeds back up – we send a higher quality encode of the film.

    A Car, A Mailbox, and the HTML5 File API

    Uploading a 10 GB video file on the internet is a bit like pushing a car though a mailbox. “That’s impossible,” you say. And you’re right, of course. The way to get around the problem is to chop up the car into little pieces and push them through the mailbox one piece at a time. Then, when all the pieces are on the other side, you put the car back together.

    Good luck with that :)
