How to use it:

1. Embed your HTML5 videos into the webpage.

<video id="video">
  <source src="video/video.mp4" type="video/mp4">
  <source src="video/video.ogg" type="video/ogg">      
  <track label="English" kind="subtitles" srclang="en" src="video/captions.vtt" default>
    Your browser doesn't support HTML5 video.
    <a href="video/video.mp4">Download</a> the video instead.

2. Add custom controls to the video player.

<div id="videoControls">
  <input type="range" id="progressBar" value="0">
  <span id="progress"></span> 
    <div id="buttonControls"> 
      <button id="play"><img id="playImg" src="icons/play-icon.png" alt="The play icon"></button>
      <span id="duration">00:00 / 01:00</span> 
      <button id="fastFwd">1x Speed</button>                          
      <button id="fullScreen"><img id="fullScreenImg" src="icons/fullscreen-icon.png" alt="The fullscreen icon"></button>
      <input type="range" id="volumeSlider" min="0" max="1" step="0.01" value="1">  
      <button id="mute"><img id="muteImg" src="icons/volume-on-icon.png" alt="The mute icon"></button>            

3. Add custom transcript to the video.

    <span data-start="4.13">connect your personal devices to the internet inside your house. </span>
    <span data-start="7.535">Well there are many ways to connect to the internet, and </span>
    <span data-start="11.27">most often people will connect wirelessly. </span>
    <span data-start="13.96">Let's look at an example of how you can connect to the internet. </span>
    <span data-start="17.94">If you live in a city or a town, you probably hav a coaxial cable for </span>
