  • Anybody know of a free site that will let you add subtitles to a video without watermarks?
    Upload you video to youtube as unlisted/private, then download the SRT file with something like this. Assume you'll have to edit some parts that it's picked up wrong. It also takes a while for YT to transcribe the audio. Source: over 1 year ago

Bear in mind, Youtube's transcription won't be perfect, but you'll only have to edit the few mistakes the AI will have made by comparing it to what you hear or the script... Source: over 1 year ago

    You can use DownSub to download the subtitle file as text, but fair warning, it will probably need a lot of clean up depending on the fidelity of your audio and the speed of your speech. I don't clean ours up at all because it would take too much of my time, but I wanted some kind of searchable document for when I am trying to find old information and this process has come in handy.

    This how I do it... there's a website called DownSub. Using that website it's very easy to download the subtitle files for videos. I did this for a bunch of the streams/interviews a while back. Then, using a program like Notepad++ you can batch search in all of them simultaneously for a specific word or phrase, making locating specific clips and the time they appear in the video very easy and quick.
