Youtube Annotation in Hypothesis

To create a transcript for a Youtube video, you will want an "SRT" file. These can be created very easily in Otter.ai, which I highly recommend. Steps for creating the transcript:

  1. Upload a video to Otter.ai
  2. Edit the resulting transcript
  3. "Export Text" > "SRT"
  4. Uncheck "Include speaker names" > "Continue"
  5. In Youtube Studio, select "Subtitles"
  6. "Edit" for the video you're subtitling
  7. Three dots > Upload file > Select the SRT
  8. Publish!

See the result here: https://docdrop.org/video/I74Vdx9mqqs/

It's very meta, if you think about it.
