The unique functioning of the Interactive Video Transcript feature is one of the main sources of praise for FV Player. Yet, we are always trying to make even the best features better than before.
That is why we’re happy to announce that the Interactive Video Transcript feature is now supported in playlists too. We have also added a “Preserve original formatting” setting which prevents automated formatting of the transcript text.
To get these features, you have to use FV Player Pro 126.96.36.1997. beta version, or higher.
