Image from store Subtitles For YouTube
Description from store 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 Do not forget to rate and review the app once you use it. Also do visit http://www.diycaptions.com/ which makes it very easy to create captions for YouTube videos. Github Repo: https://github.com/yashagarwal1411/SubtitlesForYoutube Developers: Yash Agarwal ([email protected]), Nitin R Gupta ([email protected]) ------------ Changelog ------------ v 8.7.03 + Dark theme support added by https://github.com/SilkyFowl v 8.3.06 + Fixed Amara integration after API contract change v 8.2.21 + Adding support for Delaying subtitles from UI v 7.6.24 + Minor enhancements v 6.3.31 + Added option to search inside subtitle v 6.1.14 + Fixed issues after YouTube UI update

  • (2021-07-13) 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!
  • (2021-07-03) J G L: It doesn't seem to be working for YouTube anymore? I can't find the interface when I open YT on my Desktop.
  • (2021-05-29) Sherif Aliti: No subtitles found on YouTube...
  • (2021-05-22) Paolo Di Bello: Honestly there aren't many subtitles
  • (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.
  • (2020-12-02) Jade Balyeku: Does this work while watching live streams if it does its not working for me :(

  • (2020-08-22) Sophie _Sandall: it wasnt wornking i was trying to watch anime and it was in Japanese so i got this and it did nothing
  • (2020-08-14) it transalates all the languages and it shows english subtitle all languages arabic tamil english hindi
  • (2020-08-10) padigapati srikanthreddy: nice
  • (2020-07-10) Stewart L: I have no idea how this works because it's somehow adding subtitles to some videos that don't have subtitles included (usually short scenes from American Movies posted on youtube), it's impressive.
  • (2020-04-14) Ibrahim Rasheed: works like a dream, specially for foreign language movies. Thanks a lot for the brilliant idea on internet.
  • (2020-04-03) Nimish Sarin: hey yash, great work! it used to work perfectly fine for me but suddenly even though i have it installed, the UI for the subtitles doesn't show up anymore. Tried reinstalling it but to no avail. Please help.
  • (2020-03-31) Enrique Godina: como se usa ayuda
  • (2020-03-31) DOBAKIN: not working rn. not sure what is triggering this issue
  • (2020-03-31) Juan Martin: Stopped working...while it worked, it was great
  • (2020-03-05) Verona H.: Not Working Would be great IF it worked. I'm on fast Internet and Windows 10. Instead of "automatically adding subtitles to ANY YouTube video", it's doing nothing. It allows you to SEARCH for subtitles under the video, which is about useless. Then it comes up with the following: "Uh-Oh! Looks like there's no subtitles by that name. Try changing the title?" Every single video that doesn't already have subtitles on YouTube, this is the message I receive. It doesn't auto-generate subtitles, doesn't add them to the videos. Instead, it allows you to search for subtitles, doesn't find them, and that equals you're again stuck with NO subtitles. If there already were subtitles on the YouTube videos, you would of course see them anyway and this has no purpose.
  • (2020-02-12) Ken Loc: Hi, can you add download subtitle function?

  • (2020-01-02) Ongki Lada: aplikasih ini sangat membuantu dan sangat bagus
  • (2019-10-23) Jp Icalla: I was gonna try it to test a subtitle to see if its positioning / styling is working as intended where community contribution is disabled. I thought it would also work for WebVTT (vtt) subtitles also but I think only SubRip (srt) subtitles are supported. If it's possible, please add an option where you could use YouTube's native subtitle player (if that's possible) and also add support for WebVTT (that can support styling and positioning)? If it helps, when loading subtitles, I think they transform the subtitle loaded when pressing the CC button to a <timedtext/> XML document (if you inspect the request on console). But if I'm actually gonna watch movies or something, I think it would actually be very useful.
  • (2019-09-30) Min L: Great for putting foreign subtitles

But, trying to get English subtitle for that German video. It's great you have made upload option. Still, Anyway to get transcript or subtitle which not available on web with help of your extension and Even would like to hear for other possibility. Thanks!

  • (2019-01-23) Edoardo N: Wonderful. You don't even need to search and download subtitles, as the extension does the work for you. Still, you can do it manually if you need to. I couldn't ask for more, thank you!
  • (2019-01-22) Thank you for your hard work first of all :) A little suggestion: It would be nice if we could move the subs up or down (like for the CC)
  • (2019-01-19) Najmeh Mousavi: Great work! I am using Persian language. For some srt files it works perfectly. However for those files which I have to change my current system locale to "Persian" (in my own laptop) it does not work and it shows the line all in question marks. Maybe you can fix this bug in your next release :)
