On this page, you should see all of the videos that you have loaded to your YouTube channel. Select “Video Manager” at the top of the page. Next to the video you want to add captions or subtitles to, click the drop-down menu next to the “Edit” button. Then, select “Subtitles and CC” Next to your video, you should see a link titled “Add new subtitles or CC.” If you have already set settings in your YouTube page to automatically set closed captioning, you will see that here.
