Dotsub is happy to announce our new ‘YouTube Connect’ feature. This allows you to caption videos in your YouTube account without uploading them to Dotsub.
You can even purchase Dotsub’s professional captions and translations for your YouTube videos. Our Enterprise clients can now have their Dotsub project setup automatically connect video from their YouTube account, as well as having the captions and translations pushed back to YouTube.
This new connect feature can be accessed from our new upload page. Just hit ‘Videos in my YouTube’ to start the process.
If you have not already approved YouTube access for Dotsub, you will be asked to. If you have already given Dotsub access to your YouTube account, you will be brought directly to the YouTube Connect page. Here you can select the videos in your YouTube account by clicking the checkbox on the left. Once you have selected all the videos you wish to connect to Dotsub, select your desired license, permissions and video language at the bottom of the page and hit ‘Connect’.
In a few seconds, you’ll see your video is in your Dotsub account ready to be captioned and translated. The caption and translation process works exactly the same as a video uploaded to Dotsub. To upload the captions back to YouTube just hit ‘Sync Captions to Video on YouTube’ under ‘Publish Video’.
The same great Dotsub caption and translation services are available to you for your YouTube connected videos. You can order our services by clicking order from ‘My Videos’ or from the video page.
Please note that because YouTube connected videos are not stored on the Dotsub platform, we cannot create MP4 burn-ins. If a burn-in is required, the video must be uploaded to Dotsub. Also, clients who have established workflows, can continue doing it using the prior methodology.
For more details on automatically connecting videos in a YouTube account or auto syncing caption content back to YouTube, please contact your account manager.
