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

  5. In the popup, add the URL of the video to the field matching your video's format. 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.
