Do you mean over the video itself? We have a subtitle div that lays on top of the video. We were trying a bind between that and the current editable subtitle so that it would update over the video as you typed in the box. It wasn't working properly so I just removed it while getting the subtitle boxes to work correctly. I've added it back to show show the current subtitle over the video.
And if you can get some urls for the cloud academy videos let us know. I think our Youtube API will be done soon so we can start adding others.

Excellent
Yes it's a very important part of our USP to be able to see the edited craptions on the video player in real time
Realise it's a challenge though

I read through the link article. The problem we were having has to do with the Angular binding correctly updating between the edit text box and caption over the screen. If you look at the site now, it shows the current caption correctly. Since we need to have the last, current, and next captions in boxes on the side, the same function that performs that task adds the current caption to the video overlay.
