Subtitles on Youtube?

Posted August 28, 2008 by jfs ‐ 1 min read

Recently Youtube got a new features: Subtitles and captions. You can upload a subtitle file to your own videos, so the viewers can get subs. Softsubs, that is. And you can add as many as you want.

So what format are those subtitles in? “Anything that reminds of SRT and SUB goes.”

So: Yes, Aegisub supports Youtube subtitles. Just export to SRT when you are done.

Remember that while Aegisub doesn’t show SRT (and other formats) as an option in the regular Save As dialogue box, you can still save directly to those formats. Just add the appropriate file extension yourself to the filename, and Aegisub will pick the right format automagically. You can also just pick regular “Save” if the filename (as displayed in the window title bar) already ends with eg. .srt.
