I’ve been perusing some old MST3K and “best of” Rifftrax commentaries on YouTube, and I’ve discovered the “Closed Caption” feature, this feature listens to the audio stream and attempts to caption the audio stream, depending on the video watched, it can range from reasonably accurate to laughably bad
It seems that the program doesn’t cope too well with dealing with two audio streams running simultaneously, so the captioning for MST3K/Rifftrax is usually laughably bad…
It adds another layer of humor to the already great MST/'Trax;
From MST3K; The Movie
