YouTube Captions and Rentals


Add to iTunes | Add to YouTube | Add to Google | RSS Feed

Oops. I was messing around with a new YouTube “Rentals” feature for Partners – which had unforeseen consequences. As soon as I realized my mistake, I undid as much as I could on the affected video. Everything should be back to normal now, save not being able to make that video (in question) visible in countries beyond the USA. I’m waiting to hear back from my YouTube liaison.

While I have you on the line, y’all have to check out the new “Captions” features. I show you how to turn it on in this video, too – and I believe that new beta feature is enabled for all YouTube videos. Apparently, I’m funny in machine-translated Closed Captioning.

Caption This Video of Dancing Microsoft Office Icons

Don’t ask me why, but for some reason Microsoft Office icons were not allowed to use the restroom at Macworld. They were forced to “dance” it off. Unfortunately, this made quite a mess. The Microsoft Office for Windows icons could pee anytime they wanted, which leads me to believe that someone there is playing favorites.

Go ahead – caption this video! Remix it, add captions or other funny things to it, and upload it as a video response to the video (or here on the blog). Get creative and have fun! Just… remember to keep it clean!

Thanks to kevoc2008 for capturing this video for us!

How to Create Captions for YouTube Videos


Add to iTunes | Add to YouTube | Add to Google | RSS Feed

I have recorded and uploaded over 2000 videos on YouTube, and that’s a lot. Many people have asked me if I would ever go back and caption the videos using YouTube’s caption tool. Sadly, I just don’t have the time to do that. There is a way, though, that you can go in and caption your own videos easily. Caption Tube helps you create captions for your YouTube videos. It’s easy to use and it’s free.

You can incorporate your YouTube videos within this service. Sign in with your YouTube account ID, and it will list all of your YouTube videos that have been uploaded and processed. Press a button to import a video. I can choose to pause the video if I wish, add a caption and the text… even the start time and duration. Then just press the save button, and it’s finished.

When you’re done with captioning the entire video, there are a variety of things you can do. You can save them to a text file, email them to yourself, or even export them in one of a few different formats.

If you know of any other really cool services out there, drop me a line! I’d love to take a look at it, and maybe share whatever you’ve found with the rest of the world.

The Great Political Cartoon Experiment

I’m going on record by stating that user generated content is often user generated CRAP. Still, that didn’t stop me from forcing Brad to publish today’s bLaugh with an empty caption bubble. We’re asking the audience – all two of you – to fill in the blank. I’m hoping that Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Whigs, and “Islamic Fascists” will be able to drop the debate for just a moment and make the world a funnier place…

Lieberman Hacked!
