How To Force Captions & Subtitles On YouTube (2018)
- Hey YouTube, you k
now, it would be nice if I could force my videos to automatically show my captions
You know what I'm saying? - [Man] Dude, you can already do that. - Really? (energetic music) Once you get those beautiful captions or translations uploaded to YouTube by Rev, you get there are other languages spoken in the world, right? It'd be nice to have YouTube just display them, wouldn't it? The people watching your videos might want to see the text or captions, also known as subtitles, of what's being said. They could be on a subway, and it's too loud; in the workplace, not wanting to disturb others. They could be hard-of-hearing, hearing-impaired or deaf. Maybe the audio quality is poor, as the footage was shot outside with a large, noisy crowd, and you can't hear the speaker, or there was a faulty microphone when the footage was shot. Maybe the person's accent is too hard to understand, or they spoke in another language not familiar with your audience. Or maybe they are pretending to listen to their mom while she starts lecturing them and have to mute the sound, but don't wanna miss the video. Here's a little-known secret: it's ridiculously easy to tell YouTube you want your captions to be automatically shown on your videos. See this text? Just drop that code into your YouTube tags, and walla! When someone plays your video, the captions will be automatically on. - [Man] Geek moment! - If you're using YouTube embed code to embed videos on a website, just add the code ?cc_load_policy=1 at the end of the URL inside the iframe. Embed code that looks like this ends up looking like this. So get those captions or translations into your videos using Rev, and simply add that force-captions-on flag to your YouTube videos, and you're good to go!

I hope that helps, and thanks for watchin'
