How To Add Subtitles To YouTube Video – YouTube Subtitle Maker

Adding Subtitles and Captions to Any YouTube Video

They would hardly be any people who do not socialize over the net. Chatting with friends, uploading photographs and videos, and blogging are some of the basic activities. YouTube is undoubtedly the most popular streaming videos website, and it has thousands of visitors uploading videos everyday. The videos could be ranging from funny clips, business presentations, family occasion videos, animated tapes, commercial advertisements, music videos and lots more.

Many a time, when we upload videos in certain websites we are not allowed to add any subtitle or caption to it, and also the procedure to do it is very tedious. This never is the case with YouTube. Uploading videos and adding captions and subtitles are very easy here. This feature makes it easier to share videos globally.

Subtitles make it possible for people to understand the language of the video. The video would not become popular globally if people are unable to follow the language of the video. If the subtitles are provided in any known or common language, then all the people across the world can easily view and follow it. Usually the subtitles are provided in the international language, English.

Captions are useful when the videos cannot easily convey as to what they are about. In some of the funny clips, the subtitles might not even be according to the language that people are talking, probably in a language that is unknown to many.

YouTube allows its users to add captions and subtitles to videos that have already been uploaded. The procedure for adding the captions are subtitles is quite easy. YouTube provides a step by step guide to direct you through the various processes for adding additional information to your videos. The steps are simple and you don’t have to be a computer expert to follow them. The step by step guide can be found at the YouTube’s Help Center.

Subyo is a web service which allows users to access the videos from YouTube to add additional information to it. Users will have to register before availing the features here. As a matter of fact, you could also add your website links to your videos and attract interested prospects.

YouTube Has Implemented Widescreen Player Now.

YouTube had announced about this feature being rolled out soon a couple of months ago :

We’re expanding the width of the page to 960 pixels to better reflect the quality of the videos you create and the screens that you use to watch them. This new, wider player is in a widescreen aspect ratio which we hope will provide you with a cleaner, more powerful viewing experience. And don’t worry, your 4:3 aspect ratio videos will play just fine in this new player.

All the old videos were of the standard 4:3 ratio, and these videos may appear inset. Where as the recent videos are of 16:9 ratio, and these videos are tailor made for current format.

So what’s behind this move from YouTube ? Few days ago it was reported on CNet News that YouTube was working closely with content producers to showcase feature films.

May be Hulu is the driving force behind this. Competition from such competitors is forcing YouTube to provide better user experience.

Not sure how this will affect all those sites that embed YouTube videos, as those sites may require a facelift …

“This Site Is Closed For Renovation” — FaceBook Gets A New FaceLift

Face book, with over a 100 million users, is one of the best social networking site I’ve personally been a member of. Facebook recently got new facelift. Over 30 million users have already tried the new facebook and have started using it.

There are a lot of users who still are not comfortable shifting to the new UI (User Interface). This is normally the case with people. Even if the NEW is for the better, we hate the learning curve. But once we are foced to take it up, left with no choice, we convince ourselves, take up the challenge, use it and also get adjusted very quick. That’s the beauty of the human brain.

According to Facebook team, the “back to the old Facebook” frame will be gone soon and users will be forced to accept the new look without an option.

This facebook group which has more than over 800,000 users have been consistantly pelting facebook for the recent changes, but facebook has been taking the negative critisim in a positive way. They are looking for most valid complaints/suggestions if not all, by users and are building a stronger newer system. Now that’s smart business 🙂 ..

“We appreciate all of the feedback we have received since we started working on the new design of Facebook. We encourage our users to continue sending us suggestions that will help us make the site even better.”

This is what Mark Slee of facebook had to say,

Filter Feeds – Check out the most recent and relevant actions from friends on Top Stories or see them as they happen with Live Feed.

Customize Tabs – Access to photos, info, and applications with new tabs on the profile page. Create custom tabs for the applications you access most frequently (such as a “Music” tab for iLike).

Navigate Faster – Quickly jump to profile, apps, inbox, search, home, and friend updates, through the navigation bar at the top of each page.

Participate in Stories – Easily view the top stories generated by friends, comment inline on status updates, and filter which stories you’d like to see more of – whether it’s more photos, fewer status updates, or more about a particular person.

Publish Content – Post comments, links, photos, music, and videos directly to the Mini Feed or friends’ walls with the publisher box.

Humans are reluctant to change, I’m one of them. But when change is ineveitable we all learn to live with it and adjust our life according to the conditions outside. At this point, when I’m almost done with todays updates, I’m open to test some of the new facebook tips and learn from my experience.
