Easily add captions to your YouTube videos through our latest integration. Link your YouTube account with SyncWords and easily select videos for captioning and even have SyncWords post captions back to YouTube once your project is done. Public and Unlisted videos will appear in your account.
From your dashboard, click + New Project
Under Media, click Link Your YouTube Account to get started.
Now select an account you would like to add and click the “Link Account” button.
You’ll be redirected to log into your YouTube account and authorize SyncWords to access your account.
Important note: Make sure your pop-up blocker is disabled on the SyncWords site, otherwise you won't be able to authorize and link your YouTube account. Follow the steps below to avoid running into this issue.
In Safari, simply go to Preferences - Security - and Uncheck Block Pop-up Windows
Once the account is link you can select your linked YouTube account form the dropdown and pick an available video to caption or transcribe.
You can sort or filter your videos a few different ways. Videos that already have captions have a CC image over the YouTube thumbnail. Videos that have been captioned by SyncWords will show the SyncWords logo icon over the thumbnail.
Auto Postback Captions to YouTube
You can automatically upload your synchronized captions to the selected YouTube video when the project completes.
Simply check off Auto Postback Captions when selecting a video from your linked YouTube account. That will post back a 32x2 .SRT file to your YouTube clip.
You can also PostBack captions any time after the project is complete. Any text or timing edits made in the Caption Editor will be included in the file that is posted back. Posting back a file after the fact will overwrite any previous file posted back from SyncWords. To postback after the fact, click the "More Options" button and select Postback.
