In Kaltura you can place subtitles, my question is: Do the subtitles appear as they appear on Youtube? If so, you can click on the text and show the video where that text is found, for example: if I click on the text where the word “Goal” is found, automatically the video places it in the minute 00:05:05.

Hi @ycuartas,

Kaltura supports adding multiple caption [subtitle] assets to any given media entry and has an API for searching for a given term within the caption files. See:
https://developer.kaltura.com/console/service/eSearch/action/searchEntry. The service for handling caption assets is called captionAsset [see https://developer.kaltura.com/console/service/captionAsset].

If you’re using the Kaltura SaaS, Kaltura MediaSpace [KMS] includes a feature that enables searching for terms inside the caption assets; To see it in action, go to https://portal.mediaspace.kaltura.com/media/Kaltura+Interactive+Video+Player/1_i6jcf1uo/37846372 and search for “player” for instance. If you click on the time in which the term is said in the search results, playback will commence from that point.
