Hello, I think the tutorials (especially the basic training ones) need to have subtitles so that those who don't speak English can translate the videos.

Perhaps I'll give it a go.

you can use this to do it. http://captiontube.appspot.com/ its easier to me then trying to get a transcript to work and you can caption videos made by others with it.

Its very time consuming and I dont even caption all of my videos unless I write a script beforehand that I can use

I just write a text file, with all the correct formatting.

Here's how far I've got with the first video:

1
00:00:00,00 --> 00:00:07,00
Welcome to the Muvizu basic training tutorials. This is video Number 1 of 4 and it's called 'My first video'

2
00:00:07,00 --> 00:00:15,00
I'll be introducing you to the features within Muvizu and we'll be rapidly creating a cartoon from start to finish. So let's jump in, and see what we can do.

3
00:00:15,00 --> 00:00:23,00
Ok, I've got Muvizu just open here and I'm confronted with the new scene window. I've got a blank set, a previously opened set.

4
00:00:23,00 --> 00:00:28,00
Down the side, here, I've got various other sets that I can click on to customise and play around with.

5
00:00:28,00 --> 00:00:36,00
For this tutorial, I'll be moving into the historical section; and I'll be going for the western street.

6
00:00:36,00 --> 00:00:40,00
Ok, so, the western street is loading in.

7
00:00:40,00 --> 00:00:46,00
Ok, here we are in the western set. What does every western need? It needs a cowboy.

No, I actually typed this by hand. The youtube one does hate accents!

Yes i know you typed it by hand why not use caption tube? It puts in the times for you and duration of the caption and a few other things. It works more precisely then doing it by hand I gave up doing it by hand it was a mess and put the words in where i didnt want them and they would over ride each other. It will also upload to someone elses video plus its much faster and works better then typing by hand which is why I suggested it plus you can access someone elses videos and caption them.

I am a fan of efficiency manually doing that and then trying to get them uploaded is more work for everyone

Does this software render the subtitles on the video or give you a file to link to your youtube video?

No it uses the caption feature on youtube and does not render it into the video its youtube's caption app you just pull up the video and type into the line below it. You can download a file if you choose or place it directly onto the video. If someone else owns the video they will get a notice and all they need to do is click a button to approve it there is no messing with text files or anything if you dont want to.

This is why I suggested it because it would not make work for muvizu all they need to do is click a button once its done and not spend any time uploading anything - eh maybe they need to upload I forget how it works I used it on a few videos awhile back anyhow its way faster then typing in all the timestamps and durations and less prone to user error -

I think those instructions are old because the last set of videos i captioned it just loaded it onto the video as there was that option anyhow I did a bunch for someone at one point and that is the tool I used
