Activating the Captions Feature
Captions are the small paragraphs of text attached under the video, usually used to show the name or title of the video. To add a caption in the shortcode editor, you must first activate the feature in Settings -> FV Player -> Post Interface Options. Here you need to check the Playlist captions box.
Adding a Caption to a Video
After the feature has been activated, the Caption field will be available in the shortcode editor. Write the text you want to have under your video to the respective field. The feature supports plain text only, no HTML.
Here is an example of a caption under a single video:
Adding Captions to a Playlist
Captions can also be added to a whole playlist - individually for each video. To do that, add videos you want into a playlist via the shortcode editor (here's a guide on how to do that - How to Create Playlists), then fill in the Caption fields as you would do for a single video.
Here's an example of playlist of videos with captions:
Adding Captions to a YouTube Playlist
FV Player supports importing a whole playlist from YouTube (here's a guide on how to do it - Using YouTube with FV Player). The videos from a YouTube playlist are always loaded automatically and so are the captions, if you allow it. All you need to do is paste the link of a playlist you want to import to the shortcode editor, and then add some random text to the Caption field. It does not matter what you write, because it only activates the automatic loading of captions, which are generated from the titles of each video.
Here is an example of an imported YouTube playlist with captions:
