Q?

How do I add videos to my favorites?

A.

When you are logged in, under each video, you should see a star where it says "Add to favorites".   Click it and the video will appear in your favorites, now appearing on the top right of the page when you log in.  To remove it, you'll find "remove from favorites" in the same spot on the saved video.

Q?

Where are the captions?

A.

If you have paid for Premium membership or have a free day pass, you should be able to turn the captions on and off.   There should be a small CC button on the bottom right of the play bar.  You may also need to update your browser if it's still not working for you.  If you're still having trouble, email us and we'll see if we can figure out what's going on.
