[ A penquin DOES appear here, on good days. ] Geek alert: the video-files viewable here actually reside in a separate Google 'cloud-storage acct'. [ If you're curious about details of that product, click on the Google Cloud Platform logo above. ] New feature: You can search captions for a word or phrase, and if found,
it will re-position the video/progress-slider there:
New feature: You can visually re-position the video, via thumbnail-slider:

This web-app page can operate in conjunction with CHROMECAST-compatible devices
So, if you have Wi-Fi, consider buying a Google 'Chromecast' HDMI-dongle
(available at the Google Store or Amazon.com, etc.)
Then, you could simply "tab-cast" this video onto your TV, rather than viewing on a PC or tablet.
Google's methods for"tab-casting"
from each of 3 platform categories
("Computer", "Android", "iPhone/iPad")
Hint: For finer-control of TV-screen layout, first try a "Computer" platform
(Chrome-OS or Windows OS), rather than a mobile device (Android or iOS)
Step 1: Launch desired movie on the 'PC' device. Select the 'full-screen' control.
Step 2: Use the 'Cast to ...' option, in the upper-right menu, in Chrome-browser,
to connect to the chromecast device.
Note: Instead, if you use a mobile device (Android or iOS) as 'Chromecast controller',
you'll get less layout control (and captions will probably not pass-thru to TV)
Implementation info: sprite-thumbnail details info here The video files are MP4 files (vcodec=H.264 and acodec=MP3) Viewing of MP4 video files works fine in most all of the major browsers...e.g. Chrome, Opera, Firefox, Edge, etc
The soft captions/subtitles used here are VTT (text) files, which were converted from SRT (text) files If you're involved in your own Internet video-production :: There's a free SRT->VTT converter avail at: https://subtitletools.com/convert-to-vtt-online SRT files (in various languages) are available at "subscene.com" and "moviesubtitles.org"
