Amara

Currently we only support subtitles in the .ttml format. You can use Amara.org or other software to create subtitles files.

Follow these steps to use Amara.org to subtitle a WordPress.tv video:

  1. Click on one of the Download links next to the MP4 option: Low or Med will work fine.
  2. Copy the URL of the video that appears.
  3. Paste this link into the Subtitle field at http://www.amara.org/en/videos/create/
  4. Follow the instructions provided by Amara.org
  5. Once the video is subtitled at Amara.org, click on the link under View Subtitles, to the left of the video display.
  6. Click on the Download drop-down menu and select TTML.
  7. Change the file extension of the downloaded file from XML to TTML.
  8. Upload that file to WordPress.tv (right here, on this page).
  9. Enjoy your newly captioned video in all its text-enriched glory.
