Re: A Lucrative "No Competition" Niche
When I first started using Subtitle Horse
It was a free download. Now I see the
developer is charging for it...and quite
rightly so. It's a good software.
But you can still try it out for free in the
download for 30 days. The online version
is still completely free.
I just attempted to create a video as
promised demonstrating my method
for creating subtitles, but my voice is
much too hoarse.
Sorry about that, but this thyroidectomy
has left me sometimes speaking in a
Here instead is a short step by step of
what I do. This is the same instructions
that I gave to my Philippino outsource
How to Caption a Video
Step 1. Open the Subby folder.
(This the folder containing the
Subtitle Horse download, which
I renamed, "Subby")
The only two files you'll be using are
"offline" and "video." Ignore the other
files in the folder. They are necessary for
the captioning process, but you do not
need to use them in any way.
Step 2. Copy and paste the flv video
clip to be captioned inside this Subby
Step 3. Delete the existing file entitled,
"video" found inside the folder.
Step 4. Rename your newly pasted video
clip, "video" (without the quotes.)
Step 5. Double click on the "offline"
browser file, opening it.
Step 6. You will be copying and pasting
the transcribed text, one line at a time,
into the small box found just below the
Each line will be approximately seven
7. Click the play button on the video
player and as the video starts to
play, you can stop it after the first
few words have been spoken.
8. Copy and paste those spoken
words from the prepared transcript,
into the small box area found to
the right of the video player.
9. Click on "Create." Look over to the
right inside the large box area, you
will now see the transcribed text turn
into captions. That is your goal.
10. Again click play on the video
player in order to continue the
video. Again, after a suitable amount
of words have been spoken, stop the
player and copy and paste the next
six to eight words into the small box
below the video player.
11. Continue doing this until you have completely captioned the entire video.
12. Once you have completed
captioning the video, next click
on "Titles" then choose "Export."
From the resulting drop down menu,
choose SRT. This will show you the
entire text nicely captioned.
13. Copy and paste the entire code.
Paste it inside Notepad and name it
exactly the same as the original title
of your video. Make sure the code now
has a .xml extension. Save it as a .xml file.
14. Congratulations! You have just
completed your first captioned video.
