    Embeding video transcripts?

    Hi guys, l have a question l was hoping some of you could help me out with.
    I want to know the best method to embed video transcripts onto a page for the purpose of SEO.

    Our site has two types of video players, some pages have a flow player video that's hosted on a CDN, while other pages have straight up youtube video embeds.

    Is the best method to embed a transcript using a blockquote tag, or is there a better method that search engines crawl and understand better?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    If you add the transcript as regular text below the video it should be fine. I do not think you need any special markup for it to be effective.

    I agree with revium. Good old headings and paragraphs work just fine.
