Presently, in the descriptions of YouTube videos that are synced with Amara subtitles, the invitation to subtitle them has a shortened URL for the relevant Amara page.
Example: in "SCOTUS Justices: How Does a Justice Retire?" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=awFelPA-TBU , this message says:
"Help us caption and translate this video on Amara.org: http://www.amara.org/en/v/BW3S/ "
and http://www.amara.org/en/v/BW3S/ automatically redirects to http://www.amara.org/en/videos/qCqSQXRxvKLW/info/scotus-justices-how-does-a-justice-retire/ .
Being able to use such shortened URLs on twitter, facebook, in e-mails etc would be very handy. However, when you click on the Share buttons for these things on an Amara page, the automatically inserted URL is the one up to info/ - in the above example, http://www.amara.org/en/videos/qCqSQXRxvKLW/info/ . So:
Thank you in advance.
Putting the shortcode in the share items is a great idea. I asked the team about it and we're going to put it in our to-do shortlist. Will let you know once it goes live.
I would also like this feature. Will it be available soon?
