Everything You Need To Know About YouTube’s Captions


Adding captions to your videos is one of the best ways to reach more viewers. They’ll be able to enjoy your videos virtually anywhere without needing headphones. YouTube’s new captions feature is designed to make adding captions to videos way easier for creators.

Here’s everything you need to know about the updates to captions on YouTube.

1.You’ll be able to add captions before your video goes live.

Previously, creators have only been able to add captions to a video after it’s been published. This can decrease the number of views your video gets early-on because anyone who prefers to watch with captions will have to wait.

2.Add your captions in the Video Details section.

The new process for adding captions is fairly straightforward, and it’s been integrated into the upload process you’re already familiar with.

3.You can create captions three different ways.

In the captions editor, you have three different options for creating your captions. Firstly, you can upload a file that’s been created outside of YouTube. Supported files types include SubRip, SubViewer, and MPsub.

Secondly, you can choose to auto-sync your captions.

Your third and final option is to type manually. With this option, you can type the captions yourself as you watch the video.

With YouTube’s latest update, you can add captions to a video during the upload flow. Be sure to let your viewers know via social media that they won’t have to wait for captions to be added to your videos anymore.
