The Transifex Editor has a built-in video player for translating subtitles. By seeing the video, translators get extra context as they translate and review subtitles. Before the video player can be enabled, a video must be linked to the subtitle file that's being translated. Your video can be in any of the following formats:

  • MP4

  • WEBM

  • OGG

  • YouTube (both regular videos and YouTube Shorts are supported)


Linking a video to a subtitle file

To link a video to a subtitle file:

  1. From the project navigation, select the project with the file you want to link your video to.

  2. Click on Resources.

  3. From the list of resources, click on the file you want to link the video to.

  4. Open the Options by clicking the icon (indicated by three dots) in the top-right corner of the page. When open, click "Video subtitles."

  5. Add the video URL to the field matching your video's format in the popup. You can add separate URLs for the same video (e.g., www.example.com/video.mp4 and www.example.com/video.webm) if you'd like the video to work in different browsers.

    Your video can be hosted on YouTube, Amazon S3, or any other 3rd party site as long as it's publicly accessible.

  6. When you're done, click Close.

📝Note: Timestamps should be included with your subtitle file for the video player to work.
