How Do I Download Auto Generated Subtitles?

Others April 9, 2021

Most video makers know that YouTube and Facebook both have auto subtitles/captions function. But do you know how to download the auto generated subtitles? The following words will introduce 5 online subtitle download tools for video makers.

1. SubDown

This online subtitle download web is new to the subtitle download market. And it is totally free. Users can download auto generated subtitles that are created from YouTube or Facebook Auto-Caption. SubDown generates and downloads subtitle files for videos from YouTube, Vlive, Viki, Hotstar, and many others.

Its process is quite simple and easy. You just need to enter the URL of the video into the block, then click the “Download” button. While this is more about getting subtitles from videos than specific than entire movies or TV shows, if that movie or show happens to be on YouTube then this could be the best way to get subs for it.

2. Subtitle Seeker

Subtitle Seeker is special from other subtitle downloads. Rather than having its own collection of contributed subtitles (by site users), this site pulls in and combines results from over twenty subtitle download sites. It’s very comprehensive, and this makes it the best place to go if you can find your desired subtitles elsewhere.

The good thing about Subtitle Seeker is it’s a simple, user-friendly interface, but this web tool has too many ads. This hits the user experience.

3. VLC

Not technically a web tool, but given that VLC is the most widely used video player on PCs and isn’t filled with oft-annoying ads like many other websites tend to be, it worths mentioning.

Yes, using VLC you can download subtitles straight into whatever movie you’re watching at that moment. With the movie open, simply click View at the top of the VLC window, then click VLsub and search for that movie’s subtitles from there.

4. OpenSubtitles

OpenSubtitles has one of the biggest databases for subtitles on the Internet. The website is available in multiple languages, and you’re likely to find subtitles in any language. It also has a great search tool that lets you filter your searches by year, country, type/genre, season, or episode. Their advanced search tool is among the best you’ll find online.

5. English Subtitles

English Subtitles has a repository of subtitles for thousands of movies from around the world, and from all eras. You’ll almost certainly find the subtitles you need for recent blockbusters and may have some joy in finding subtitles for obscure French films from the 60s too.

By the way, if you want to auto generate subtitles by yourself, AutoSubtitle Online is a good choice. It has free trial. And also, it has the best price in the subtitle market.

YouTube Auto Closed Captions: 4 Things You Should Know

What you should know about YouTube auto closed captions(CC)

Studies consistently show that adding captions increase viewership time, boost SEO, and help with accessibility. All of which can boost channel likes and earn you more dollars, if you want to do video marketing for your channel.

So if you are going to do it – and you should – it is worth doing it right.

Whilst it is tempting to go the cheap and instant route by using YouTube’s automatic captioning service, there are some limitations to this service to consider.

Let’s look at why you shouldn’t be using YouTube’s automatic captioning service and what you should be using instead.

YouTube Auto Caption is not always available

Maybe you do not believe it, but automatic captioning isn’t always available on YouTube indeed.  In fact, over half of the videos aren’t able to be automatically captioned by YouTube.

Do you know the reasons?

YouTube has listed the reasons on their support document. Under these circumstances, YouTube auto caption is not available.

  • The captions aren’t available yet due to processing complex audio in the video.

  • Automatic captions don’t support the language in the video.

  • The video is too long.

  • The video has poor sound quality or YouTube doesn’t recognize the speech.

  • There’s a long period of silence at the beginning of the video.

  • There are multiple speakers whose speech overlaps.  

That’s a long list of reasons why YouTube auto caption may not work for your video!

(Reference: Google Support)

Limited languages can Auto Caption

Another reason why auto-captioning may not be available is that the language in your video maybe cannot be supported by YouTube’s automatic captioning yet.

In fact, YouTube can only auto caption within limited languages currently: English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.

So what if your video is in Mandarin, Cantonese, Arabic, Greek, or Vietnamese? Well, you will have to find another solution.

Considering that over 80% of YouTube users come from outside of the United States, we find this list of 10 languages quite limiting.

Service is not available all the time

Even if your video has excellent sound quality, isn’t too long, and is trimmed so there isn’t any silence at the beginning, it still doesn’t mean that the automatic captions will be available.

Since the beginning of the year, multiple users have been reporting issues with automatic captioning working on their YouTube channel.

If you are running a YouTube Channel as a business, this can be very frustrating as well as a costly time delay.

Automatic Captions will not always be available

One of the main reasons to include captions is to increase your SEO.  Google can’t scroll through the audio in video content.  Therefore, to be indexed, it needs text. Adding captions to your video can provide this text.

However, Google will not always index YouTube videos that have automated captions.  The reason for this is that automatic captioning is often too poor.

Thus, for your video to be indexed on Google you will need to upload the captions yourself either by attaching an SRT file or manually transcribing the video yourself.  

Is there any Alternative?

It is widely known that YouTube auto captions is free. However, it isn’t the most effective, or necessarily the quickest method.  YouTube’s built in feature doesn’t always work, there are limited languages that it can transcribe, the service isn’t reliable, and the captions aren’t always indexed by Google.

By instead, if you try Autosubtitle.Online, you will obtain a free trial service, the professional speech to text tech, a quick and cost-effectively subtitle online tool.

Autosubtitle Online accepts more than 30 languages to transcribe; and it supports free translation; it can enhance the transcription quality by using Autosubtitle specilized noise reduction technology…

Downloading the subtitled videos or exporting the single SRT files are both good choice for Youtuber’s video SEO.

If you have any questions about transcribing your video, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

How to Transcribe Instagram Stories and Videos

Transcribe Instagram Stories and Videos

Transcribing your Instagram stories is a great way to improve your SEO and maintain strong Google Search rankings for your videos. Instagram stories are one of the most popular features of Instagram, but most aren’t accessible to deaf and hard of hearing people.

So what need to do? How do you increase accessibility for those who are hard of hearing while simultaneously boosting your rankings?

In fact, it doesn’t even need to be your video. Perhaps it’s an attractive video you saw which you want to transcribe and share. Perhaps it’s a promotional video you posted on your Insta account and now need the transcript to email to someone.

A great way to deal with this is to create a transcription of your video using Autosubtitle. It only takes a few moments and it really is so simple. And when I say ‘simple’, I mean easy-peasy!

Here’s how to create a transcription for your Instagram videos.

1. Open the Instagram video you want to transcribe

You can transcribe one of your own videos or maybe you want a transcript of an interesting talk or interview you came across.

Whatever your needs and no matter the content of the video, the process is always the same. First, you find the video you like and then you go to step 2.

2. Copy the url of the video from the top of the screen

Currently, there’s no simple one-click download option on Instagram for users to download, so copy the URL and follow step 3 for the next best option.

3. Open a free Instagram-video-downloader, paste the link, and download.

Search the keywords “Free Instagram downloader” on your browser. Pick one, then paste the Instagram URL you copied into it, and download the video.

Here is a recommendation.
