Just finished subtitling to Brazilian Portuguese a YT video called "appropriating morality | how 'the Judeo-Christian tradition' takes false credit [cc]". Went through all the 3 steps (subtitling, synchronizing, revising), clicked on "publish", was sent to a page ("Amara Public Free, this part video is part of Amara Public").
But here's the thing: when I click on the "watch on YouTube" button on the lower left corner of the video that appears on the screen, I'm sent to the video's page on YT, but upon selecting the captions options, Brazilian Portuguese doesn't show. Just wondering... is there any further action I have to take now? Or does it take a few hours for Amara to synchronize my work to YT?
Thank you for your query, Deby S.
In order for Amara subtitles to be automatically transferred to the original YouTube video, the YouTube channel of the video must be synchronized / connected to the Amara account of the person who created the Amara page.
This is not the case in this video: if you go to the URLs tab of the Amara page for the video, there is no mention of syncing. If the YouTube channel and the Amara account had been synced, it would say so in the URLs tab.
PS next time, please indicate the URL of the Amara page, rather than linking a screenshot. Thanks in advance
I had the same problem as Deby S. So I linked my Amara-account to the YouTube Channel. But after doing so, the subtitles are still not there.
What went wrong?
Thank you for your query, Elke.
The YouTube "Wer waren die Kelten? - Welt der Wunder" video was uploaded by user Welt der Wunder - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBk6ZmyoyX1kLl-w17B0V1A.
In the second case, you could try to contact the YouTube uploader and tell them they can download the Dutch subtitles from their Amara page and reuse them in their YouTube video. There is an email address in the About page of their YouTube channel.
