Does CobeCast support closed captioning?

Why not just use a free video hosting service?
There are a number of reasons that a paid hosted service is more advantageous than using a free service, including:
- Copyright and video ownership issues
- Enforcement of linking and/or embedding requirements
- Storage of consent and copyright forms
- No advertising
- Guaranteed support
- Speed of encoding and playback engines
