Re: Real Caption Question

It's been a LONG time since I've dealt with Real captioning, but are
your captions being streamed from the streaming server? If so, the
delay/buffer is probably not the same for the caption file and the
media file. You can move the caption file (.rt) to a standard web
server so they are not streamed or buffered and the captions SHOULD
remain synced with the video.

This may not work, but it's the only suggestion I can think of.
