Please add caption embedding for mpeg2 files!
mpeg2 is a standard delivery format for several television stations we deliver paid programs to. It is presently a pain to get those particular files encoded with captions and I am going to look at other NLE options if Adobe doesn't get on the ball and add this soon...

This is a huge problem for us doing broadcast programs. Most TV stations require mpeg2 files. Adobe, please add this feature ASAP! THANKS!!

Seems like this shouldn't be that big of a deal

Please add this feature!!!
I edit a weekly broadcast that airs in 6 different markets. All of a sudden 2 of the markets are saying the formats that export from Premiere with CC embedded will not work with their system. They are requesting mpeg2 files.
Unless I find another solution I will have to special edit 2 of six markets each week on a mac with Compressor. Stupid.
Jay Budzilowski commented
Agreed, Its a pain that i cannot embed 608/708 captions into mpeg-2 files... This would be extremely helpful... even apple compressor does this.
Joel Corral commented
It's really ridiculous that still after years we cannot do this.i have to pay for expensive software to do this in house. Yes there are thousands of stations still using mpeg servers! More than any other stupid and pointless added feature this needs to be implemented!
Dennis Leppell commented
Please please please make this happen. I need to deliver to 24 stations every week, all a combination of h.264, mpeg2, and mxf. Right now I'm having to run everything through maccaption. I'd love to be able to do this in one continuous workflow!
Diane Becker commented
Closed Captioning getting put directly into the output is the entire reason I got Creative Cloud a few weeks ago, switching from FCP. Only to find it doesn't do it for MPEG2, which is 9 out of 10 of my digital deliveries. That's a painful discovery I wish I'd made earlier.
Erin Carsten commented
Add this feature (pretty) please! I'm frustrated by having to export sidecar files, and marrying them in third party software!
Patrick Pond commented
Agreed. No use in doing extra work everyday. This should be implemented ASAP.
Jason Mathis commented
Yes, please add the ability to embed captions to MPEG2.
This would save my team and I hours of "double exporting" and having to use other encoders and/or services. We would only have to export once via Media Encoder!
Harry Watson commented
UPVOTED! We need this as a delivery option, please.
Joseph Hassage commented
would save me a lot of hassle
Sony Vegas is only way I've found to do it, but it would be easier if these local TV stations would just grow up and take MXF files! They're better anyway
Brandon Loshe commented
Thank you, Nate! This will make many broadcasters very happy. We appreciate you noticing this and working to make this request possible. Looking forward to future releases.

Hello, I have added this format to the back log of requested formats. To clarify this is line 21 VANC encoding and not 'embedding'. Embedding is done at the video wrapper level. The options for embedded captions are:
JPEG2000 MXF OP1a
QuickTime (608 Only)
Thanks for the feedback.

Ditto to the time saving benefit this would bring to everyone who produces content for distribution via TV stations.

Exactly! Most stations don't want to accept a sidecar file an be responsible to embed the captions themselves and I don't blame them. To top it off, several of the stations I deliver to ask for H.264 .mov files and Adobe has discontinued support for that forcing me to stay with older versions. The other option is an .mxf file which is much larger and creates another time challenge for me. It's frustrating and I wish Adobe would address it.
