  1. Thanks so much for sharing. Are you willing to change the video settings to allow members of the public to add subtitles/captions? (Many of us can't use videos in our classes without captions.) Many thanks!

  2. About the website this channel orginated from, I’m always trying to watch Kaiju movies on this website, but everytime it either buffers or says “Failed to load Media”. Please can you give me a short, but clear explanation to fix this.
