How to download the Text Transcription from your YouTube Video

 

Hey everyone,  it’s Shaun from Digital Life Concepts.

Today, I’m gonna make a video showing you how to download the video transcription from your YouTube video directly from the YouTube user interface.  Let’s get started. Super easy way to do this and I’ve actually gone through quite a few methods tonight trying to figure out the best one or at least the easiest one, so let’s go with it.

 

 

You want to go to Video Manager. You select the video that you want to edit and you go to Subtitles and CC ,  you can see two files here, one says English and one English automatic. 

 Now depending on how long your video is and how long ago you upload it, it may take a bit of time for YouTube to have automatically generated a transcript file. So if you not seeing you not seeing the automatic one,  just give it a bit of time.

Now what you want to do is download it. Select the Automatic English ( or whatever language you need)
the automatic transcription /CC is not quite accurate,  I start my videos with,

“Hi,  I’m Shaun from
Digital Life Concepts and today we’re gonna do whatever”

The program that is interpreting this heard,  ” Hi,  everyone it’s John from
Monday July”…  so as you can see it means that it needs a bit work,… now here’s where you can do.


There is a couple different ways and I’m gonna start where the way I learned first, then the one that I’ve just discovered and actually recommend. You pick which works best for you. 

Method One

If you just need the file and you’re doing all the editing off of YouTube, here’s what you can do.

Go to actions in the subscriptions/cc section and right there you can see you’ve got three file extensions, download the SRT file, click on it. It’s
going to give you a captions file and ask you where to store it at. Save it to your desktop.  Go to the desktop,

Now, in order to open and edit this, unless you already have some sort of SRT
File Opener, you can use notepad.

How to open the SRT  file with Notepad:  

  • Hit open
  • Select a program from the list
  • Select Notepad
  • Uncheck “Always Use”
  • Hit ok.

Once you do that hit control+A and a copy, open a new text document and paste the text in it.  To get rid of all the funky formatting stuff that you don’t need, you go to edit (Ctrl+H) replace.  Replace 0-9 and the symbols, the idea is to get just the text. While you’re doing this, leave the replace field blank because you want to replace it with nothing and get rid of the formatting and the notation (–>) which is the Double Dash and lesser than symbol. 


 

So what you end up having is all the text in its ugly, horrifying state.

You can go through, edit it, clean it up however you want. Then you can save it to a new doc and use it as a base text in your blog, you can upload it in the description of your video and of course you can re-upload it as a subtitle file which is what we’re going to do now.

So the way to do that, once you’ve got this text all fixed up, you have to save it as an .SRT file.  Since we’ve copied this from our captions file which IS  an .SRT , you could, theoretically copy/paste it all back over to the original file so you don’t have to worry about rewriting the subtitle format, but that can be extremely time-consuming and can put your CC file out of sync with your video.

I know cuz I just spent the last two and a half hours, literally doing it line by line and
it’s,  it’s ridiculous,  not to mention that you have to go back to your video and check what you said if you didn’t
script yourself.

 

In order to save your edited transcript: 

  • File save as
  • Go down to and select the “all files”  
  • Name it “caption” ( or something) 
  • then add dot SRT (caption.srt)
  • Hit save and now shazam!
  • you have a srt file!

There! Now you can upload this document back into YouTube as a Subtitle File.


 

Now, here is what I found and I consider a better method. 

Method Two

I went through, did the line by line thing and I ended up having to open YouTube to about 10,000 times and that was
just really ridiculous.

So what you can do is Pre-edit the file right here in the video caption interface on YouTube. Go through the entire list, get started by cleaning up the text in the captions before you download it. You will still have to do some editing, but not nearly as much and it will take much less time. You’re gonna end up editing the text anyway, but this pre-edit saves you a bunch of time.

Now that you’ve got this pre-edited and published and then you can download this file,  pre-edited and now you can do the same thing that I
just explained. You can open it up with notepad, transfer all the text over to whatever your regular editor is. Clean it up and add what you need and viola!

Hopefully this will save you some time and give you some cool ideas.

I would like to know which method works best for you, so please leave your pick in the comments, love to hear your opinion!

How to add a subscribe watermark to your Youtube videos

Hey everyone, it’s Shaun from Digital life Concepts and today we’re going to
talk about how to add a subscriber watermark to your YouTube channel videos.

 

 

Hey everyone it’s Shaun from Digital life Concepts and today we’re going to
talk about how to add a subscriber watermark cheered YouTube
channel videos.

This is one that’s actually done through your YouTube Channel  instead at being hard coded into your videos.

So what I did was  search for the word subscribe images, I went to more tools and I choose
color transparent, I want to choose a image that’s not too big, ( Youtube will automatically resize it).  You can actually go over here
and get into the icons. I think that the important thing is NOT to use copyrighted material!

So once you find a image, go back to your channel,  video manager, and go to Channel,  Branding, add the watermark file ( upload the image) then go test it.

Once you have uploaded the file, you can choose anyone of your video and the watermark will appear in the bottom right hand corner. This image is a link to your channel can boost the amount of subscribers.

Please note: Although this watermark is fully functional on youtube, it’s ONLY functional on YouTube.  If someone downloaded your video with a software, this image will not show up in the downloaded file. I do recommend adding a hard coded watermark ( ie.  A image or logo that is added to the video file itself and is therefore part of the video).  Tutorial on that coming very soon

Till then I hope this help all you other video freaks build your fan base and grow your subscriptions, You can start by add me 🙂

 

Cheers,

Shaun

Creating a sales page, landing page or “squeeze” page can be tricky. Finding the best method to draw in your client and customer base to your niche without sacrificing too much of your valuable time. Many business owners will tell you that this is a never-ending struggle, creating a balance and fine tuning your message doesn’t stop.

Now we all know that there are hundreds of WordPress plugins, themes and pages creators on the market. Some better than others, but all selling the sweet promise of instant results, increased sales and the feeling of contentment that you have that particular problem covered.

But these plugins can present a problem for the new business owners, or simply anyone that isn’t 100% computer savvy. Many of them try very to make sure they are user-friendly, but that’s not always the case. Quite frankly while researching for this article, I installed and tested several demo versions and though I am by far an expert ( I consider myself 75% Computer geek) I had to refer to the plugin instructions frequently( More had I’d like to admit ) and then began looking online for more in-depth video  tutorials.

While working with these different sales and landing page plugins, it occurred to me ” What can this do that I cannot?”  At least for a simple sales page, do I really need to spent 47$ and several hours just to get a simple sales page done? Why not do it myself?

Since I am a graphic designer, photographer and general artist, this was a simple matter of opening up Photoshop and creating an image, some buttons and wallah!

But for the rest of the world that is not so artistically inclined, here is a Video Example of the general Idea on how to create a simple sales pages for your WordPress blog, website etc. Don’t be afraid to look at different types of sales pages online for inspiration.
