A few questions:

- What media player are you using to play back the content on the Web
page? Are you trying to provide an embedded solution or a solution that
opens the media player on the user's computer?

- What are the caption file formats for the MOV and FLV videos?

I am going to second Ken's suggestion for his media player if you are
dealing with an FLV file (or want to convert one of the others into an
MP4). It's a very cool solution.

Take care,
