We recommend that you upload the subtitles separately in hihaho. This offers a few useful advantages. The viewer can turn the captions on or off by themselves (if you want them to). You can edit the files afterward, without having to upload the video again. And finally, you can add multiple languages of subtitles to the video.
In this article, you will discover how to add subtitle files to your interactive video and how to create these files.
You can find the subtitle feature under your video settings.
4 ways to add your subtitles to hihaho
There are 4 ways to upload your subtitles
Option 1: Auto-generate subtitles via AI
Nice and easy. Get your subtitles generated by AI within the hihaho platform. AI will do the work and you can get a cup of coffee (the length of your coffee break depends on the length of your video ⏳).
After generating, it is possible to manually fine-tune the subtitles. The video will be subtitled in your language, but subtitles in English will also be made. You choose which subtitles you want to use.
Option 2: Paste text
Adding subtitles manually is a very time-consuming process. Therefore we do not recommend creating subtitles manually.
Option 3: Select from video
When you're editing a video from Vimeo and this video already has subtitles, it's possible to import this subtitle track. When your video is not on Vimeo, this option will be unavailable.
Option 4. Upload a subtitle file
SRT files and WebVTT files are just text files that are used along with video data. Any text editor can be used to open SRT files since they're just plain text files with a specific format. Creating these files in a text editor is time-consuming and mistakes are easy to make. Check this article to solve common problems.
You can have YouTube generate a .srt file for free or use an open source subtitle editor like Nikse.
