Removing subtitles or videos

Updated August 15th, 2018


Please note that the removal of a video page or a subtitle set does not remove from your profile the entries about your having created/edited them.


Removing subtitles:
If you are the sole author of a subtitle set and if no other subtitles

have been translated from it, you can request its removal  

  •  in a reply to this topic if the video has not been added to any team, or
  •  if it has been added to a team, in a message to that team's admins.

When submitting the request, please

  1. Label as Remove Subtitles and language
  2. URL for the subtitle set's  page in Amara (it looks like this: http://amara.org/en/videos/NmkV5cbiCqUU/en/16497/ )
  3. Your Username
  4. Reason for taking down the subtitle set.


Removing videos:

If you have added a video to Amara by mistake and if its removal would not affect any subtitling work done by others, you can create a ticket via support@amara.org to request its removal:

  1. Label as Remove Video
  2. URL for the video's location in Amara (It looks like this: http://www.amara.org/en/videos/NmkV5cbiCqUU/info/learn-about-universal-subtitles/)
  3. Your Username
  4. Reason for taking down the video


Copyright-motivated removal requests:
If you are the copyright owner of the video, please note that Amara.org does not host any videos, we simply list and embed them for subtitling purposes.  Removing a video from Amara.org will not remove the video from wherever it is hosted.  If you need the Amara video listing and subtitles removed for copyright reasons, please submit a request at

Hello Claude;


Yes the Luchini interviews are in Film & Tv. I wasn't sure which would be best, but that seemed to fit. Captions Requested might be a more active group, however. So that would be fine also. You may move them if you wish, to CR. Thank you.

  1. Remove Subtitles and language
  2. https://amara.org/en/videos/qY1LiRHEyzjS/info/super-size-me-2004-mcdonalds-documentary/

  4. The subtitles late by about a minute, I'd fix it myself if there were a way to simply move all the subtitles back a minute.

Thank you for your request, Laura.


Actually, you can move all the subtitles back: the clock symbol above the subtitles opens a droplist that includes this possibility:



Would you try it, and if it does not work I'll delete the subtitles, but I hope it will!


Best


Claude

Thank you for your request, MKnight,


However I can only remove subtitles. For requesting the removal of videos, please create a ticket from https://support.amara.org/support/tickets/new. It will go to Amara tech staff who will be able to do the removal. In the ticket, please mention the URLs of both ages to be deleted. In the case of
https://amara.org/en/videos/qo27ahwfotL4/info/httpsb2kconan20080208mp4/ where you uploaded subtitles even if the video did not work, please specify that these subtitles are yours, because videos that have subtitles can only be removed it this does not deletes other people's work.


Best,


Claude
