Image from store Subtitles For YouTube
Description from store Use this extension to add subtitles available to user to any YouTube video SubtitlesForYoutube =================== This extension lets you add subtitles to any video you are watching on YouTube. Just drag and drop .SRT file or zipped .SRT file for your movie on to the upload-box and the subtitles will start showing up. The extension also supports searching and using subtitles directly from OpenSubtitles.org and Amara.org right from the YouTube video page. Now you can search in ALL LANGUAGES. Note there are only 5-10% videos on YouTube which have corresponding subtitle in OpenSubtitles.org and Amara.org so you might not be able to search and find subtitles for all videos. One example of video with searchable subs - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5qF_qbaWt3Q [Music video - Waiting For The End (Official Video) - Linkin Park] Note: If you already had opened a YouTube page before installing the extension you will not see extension load on that page. Just refresh the page once after installation is complete. Keyboard Shortcuts: 'V' - Enable/Disable subtitles 'G' - Precede subtitles relative to video 'H' - Delay subtitles relative to video 'Q' - Decrease subtitles size 'W' - Increase subtitles size 'O' - Move subtitles up 'P' - Move subtitles down Do not forget to rate and review the app once you use it. ------------ Changelog ------------ v 10.4.21 Add feature download file subtitle Add feature share link download subtitle on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn v 10.4.20 Fixing Amara subtitles do not display on private windows Fixing Subtitle button not showing v 10.3.10 Fixed Amara API breaking due to change in Amara endpoint v 9.9.22 Fixed Amara API breaking due to expired api keys v 9.5.16 Fixed extension not working after YouTube UI changes v 9.3.10 Added shortcuts (O, P) to move subtitles up and down v 8.3.06 + Fixed Amara integration after API contract change v 8.2.21 + Adding support for Delaying subtitles from UI

  • (2023-08-25) bnee: After trying disabling all extension i can't get this extension to work. Clicking on subtitle icon nearby share button does'nt open search and upload dialog box. It might because youtube updated their youtube interface on browser, like android app.
  • (2023-08-19) 兔兔: Can't search for subtitle Hi, thanks for the incredibly useful extension, it's nice! recently I found I can't search for the subtitle I upload to Amara.com (it worked three or four month ago) if can be fixed would help a lot, thank you! the video https://amara.org/videos/2olYIYlTiHwl/info/rp-asmr-pov-i-finally-got-some-cuffs-on-younijisanji-en-vox-akuma/
  • (2023-07-04) Luna C.: Does exactly what the description says, apparently many of the reviewers here just didn't read it. It's not providing the subs itself but rather a way to add them from external sites. No clue why that seems so hard to understand for some people... A lot of old tv shows are only to be found on youtube without subs (or not in the language I need) even though there are some available on external sites. With this extension I can finally use those. Always wondered why youtube wasn't giving the ability to use own subs so I'm glad to have found this addon.
  • (2023-06-13) Veronica Karen: I know this extension is titled appropriately as "Subtitles for YouTube", but at the end of the day, I feel like this extension could be expanded to all HTML5 videos. YouTube already has a caption feature, so this extension, whilst still a great addition, sort of fixes a problem without a gigantic solving need. However, expanding this extension's capability to all HTML5 videos, Zoro, 9anime, or to websites like Crunchyroll, or streaming services like Hulu, etc. would greatly expand this extension's potential. Websites like Zoro and 9anime need subtitle support more than YouTube I feel. That is why I am giving a 3/5 star rating, as the extension does it's job good, but at the end of the day, in my opinion, solves an issue that does not need much solving. However, for people who need this extension, it is nice :) Overall verdict: Should support other websites that have a far greater need for closed captioning support than YouTube, since YouTube already has quite decent captioning support
  • (2023-04-23) Hand Abde: for the first time it was good but then it does not work
  • (2023-03-10) Mr. Lance E Sloan: It works fairly well. However, one big downside is that clicking on the video no longer toggles pause and play. To pause or play, you must either click on the little pause/play icon in the lower left corner of the video or press the spacebar. My impression is that the captions are shown in a transparent layer over the video, so when clicking on the video I'm actually clicking on the captions layer. It would be nice if that could be handled better. I was happy to see that this extension is compatible with the "Video Speed Controller" (VSC) extension (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/video-speed-controller/nffaoalbilbmmfgbnbgppjihopabppdk). Some of the shortcut keys conflicted, though. Fortunately, VSC allows its shortcuts to be configured. I wish "Subtitles For YouTube" allowed configuring shortcut keys! I've recently added captions for a YouTube video, "The Wild Rover - Luke Kelly & The Dubliners" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DnR8v7X4zc). The captions are in Amara (https://amara.org/videos/OAP67rT5Zzrw/info/the-wild-rover-luke-kelly-the-dubliners/) and in opensubtitles.org (https://www.opensubtitles.org/en/subtitles/9459314/the-wild-rover-luke-kelly-the-dubliners-en). This extension NEVER finds those captions. I'd like someone to explain why.
  • (2023-02-02) 추태욱: 전체화면 버튼이 사라지고 동영상도 일부 잘려서 나옴
  • (2022-11-24) J I: Es inutil. En youtube no hay peliculas, solo videos de la comunidad o alguno que otro un poco mas largo, entonces los subtitulos no existen. Al buscar la opcion en el menu inferior siempre dice que no ha encontrado nada, obvio, si mi primo sube un video hablando ingles por 20 minutos, por qué alguien se tomaría el trabajo de crear los subtítulos a algo tan privado. Mejor es la extension para Netflix porque ahi sí hay subtitulos ya cargados de muchas peliculas y series CONOCIDAS y puedes ver mucho contenido con los subtitulos en ingles y castellano a la vez para que puedas aprender ingles. En youtube, los subtitulos propios de la aplicacion son suficiente.
  • (2022-10-08) Ahmad Bilal: You're a life saver Yash. The people here complaining about subtitles not being found, that is not what this extension is meant to do. Find subtitles from opensubtitles and use this ext to apply them. Also, I was wondering if it is possible to create a webapp that embeds youtube videos and does the same thing on the web.
  • (2022-10-02) TiMERS: usless
  • (2022-09-20) nathanist: the characters ãáâéêóõí are not supported
  • (2022-08-09) OPULENCIA, Keith David M.: It doesn't work on the get-go. If you're planning to use this on a not popular video, then it's not worth it, as it relies on already-existing subtitles out there. If there are none, it just isn't going to work. The description also sounds a bit vague and quite misleading for me.
  • (2022-08-04) Mustafa Yıldırım: it is not working now
  • (2022-07-19) Lappi :D: I spent a long time translating subtitles but i cannot publish them cuz there isn't a add button or anything like that. Please fix.
  • (2022-05-22) IlIlIlIlIl IlIlIlIlIl: I can use subtitles with a video, but I'm not able to share them so that others can use them. They don't show up in the search. Maybe because of Japanese file name? But I changed the filename to English and it still doesn't show up in search. I don't know. Still a good extension for adding downloaded subtitles to a video.
  • (2022-05-14) Hysen Ch: it is not working now. I have been using this plug-in for two years, but it doesn't work recently.
  • (2022-05-06) AgeTheMage _: It worked when I first got it and now it isn't working at all, the bar doesn't even come up to upload subtitles
  • (2022-04-25) 김하나: It's not working!! I could'nt find "Add" butten. Please fix this.
  • (2022-04-24) Sergen Aykuş: Doesn't work.
  • (2022-04-23) Kamil Przygodzki: It currently doesn't work - SUBTITLES button under a YT video doesn't do anything
  • (2022-01-27) Ginny Nelson: Doesnt work. Tried several different videos and no subtitles for any of them.
  • (2022-01-14) Lukas Filip: Works perfectly as necessary when uploading an .srt file
  • (2021-12-07) Aiman Jain: It was helpful! At first It did not work as I had the youtube video opened before I installed but then I refreshed the page and it worked, thanks!
  • (2021-11-30) I K: Great idea, but when I select the srt file to upload, it doesn't upload - no error message either.
  • (2021-11-14) Martu Sky: No me deja usarla, siempre me aparece como inactiva
  • (2021-11-08) Robel Begashaw: thanks it is great.
  • (2021-10-27) SS: I love this extension. I started watching a Turkish series on YT but the channel disabled auto-translate subtitles, so this has been a lifesaver. Although the database it uses to search for subtitles doesn't have any of the titles I watch, I can easily find an .srt file elsewhere from other subtitle websites, and upload it. It integrates seamlessly into YT as well, it looks like it's actually part of the website. The developers have done a great job on this.
  • (2021-10-05) Jhon: Buena extensión y si funciona pero podrían agregar la opción de cuanto delay(ms) exactamente podemos aumentar o disminuir por favor. Good extension and if it works but could you add the option of how much delay (ms) exactly we can increase or decrease please.
  • (2021-09-30) 陳順智: Excellent.
  • (2021-09-13) Zaynah N: its good, but captions aren't available to half the videos i watch :(
  • (2021-08-04) NIAN RAMBØ YT: Bro whenever i try to get subtitles under the search there is no subtitles available it keeps saying so, i can't neither upload or see if works.If Anyone what happened if can be fixed then tell me what to do

  • (2021-05-07) Onyx Solace: I applaud you for your great work in making this extension, you're a community pillar. I'm running into an issue, and I created the issue ticket on github could you please take a look? I uploaded an srt file to this video, but it's not showing up https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRsiBhhH0rc&ab_channel=ABO-SLLO
  • (2021-04-25) Sunil Singh: doesnotwork,when i searcheditkeepssayingtheresaprolem
  • (2021-04-20) Magiczny Sznurek: So far it's working great! I love the feature of shifting the subs timing if they don't exactly match the video. It would be nice to be able to change the background color of the subtitles box though, because it's sometimes barely visible on bright backgrounds.
  • (2021-04-09) Yosi C.: Muy buena me ayudo a ver capítulos que no tenían subtítulos en español <3
  • (2021-03-30) RickyDecode: It only displays the captions on very few videos. I was expecting this extensions to be like how Chrome's live captions work but with more languages then English. Disappointed.
  • (2021-03-09) Ibrahim Ahmad: Hi Yash is there any way to DL video with extension youtube subtitle? i tried to DL spanish video but there is no english subtitle.
  • (2021-02-25) Maria Fletcher: It worked once.... then I tried to watch the same thing the next day and it was no longer working. Kept saying "Uh Oh looks like there are no subtitles" even though the day before there were subtitles.

  • (2020-09-03) CD N: Not working! English song, still no subtitle. Terrible. Clicked on Chrome extension and it's just RED/ It does nothing. Just downloaded too.

  • (2021-09-21, v:8.7.03) Ivan Dolcic: Subtitle delay bug
    It seems like there is a bug with the delay option since some of the last few updates. When using the delay to synchronize the subtitles, after some time the subtitles get desynchronized. Then the delay needs to be increased/decreased more, but the subtitles get desynchronized all the time.
