How to adjust your caption settings on YouTube


In this video, we’ll show you how to manage
your caption settings when watching videos on your computer. Let’s start with turning captions on or
off. To turn captions on, go to the video player
and click this icon. To change the language of the caption track,
click the Settings icon, and go to “Subtitles/CC”. In this same menu, you can also change how
the captions look by clicking “Options”. You can adjust the font size, color, and other
options from here. Before we go, we’d like to show you how
to always show captions on videos. Click your account icon, and then click Settings. From here, click “Playback and performance”. Click “always show captions”, and then
click save. If you’d like, you can also enable automatic
captions by speech recognition. And that’s it! Subscribe to our channel for more tips and
tricks.

  10. Hey guys thanks for this explanation. Do creators can set their own settings for each video and show them to the viewers? Thank you 🎧

  11. Yesterday the YouTube captions editor was undergoing maintenance,
    now my subtitles overlap when I export the .SRT to Final Cut Pro to be edited as an .iTT
    Any help here?

  12. I have not checked my channel since the channel was created and no messages were sent so I had to remove all my videos when my channel was reviewed. I waited 6 months ago and I have not received a single message.

  13. مرحبا …قناتي ماتزال في المراجعة منذ شهور عديدة ولم تراجع الى حد الساعة ما زلت انتظر مساعدتكم وشكرا

  14. Continuamente cada vez que veo un video, tengo que ir a las opciones para cambiar el idioma España, alguna alternativa para cuando veas videos, que automáticamente salga las traducciones en tu idioma !!!

  15. انتم تآخذون صاحب القناة على هفوة او مقطح واحد نشر بطريق الخطا او نشر بشكل غير قانوني او يخالف إرشادات المنتدى …لكن كيف لصاحب القناة ان يطور قناة بالاعتماد على قدراته الذاتية وهو يشعر بظلم اتجاهه فكيف لقناة مشتركةها فاقت 10000 مشترك ولا يشاهد محتوياتها الا بضع عشرات …انتم بهذه السياسية تجعلون صاحب اي قناة يسرق محتويات الاخرين لجذب المشاهدات لانكم لا تمنحوه فرصة ليبني قناته بمجهوده الخاص

  17. My likes will not appear in my most recent video. Originally I had over 60 likes and I had friends who wanted to like the video also but couldn't. Then the likes started disappearing. This has actually happened before with my previous videos and its beyond fustrating. Is it just my channel or what? PLEASE HELP

  18. hi my youtube monitization disable how i enable again copy right issue i deleted videos .. or should i delete my channel

  19. It's not much fun having to change the language every time. Make it so youtube remembers my choices for individual videos at least, or add a setting to automatically caption in the language you want. Please.

  20. Hello Sir I am Waiting From 4 month's but my channel is still in under review. Please Enable my Channel monetization please please please.
    I had work hard everyday

  21. How to SAVE language choice for subtitles? I have to choose my language every time i watch video but next time I see ENGLISH subtitles again! Not my language!

  22. minhas configurações de idioma (pt-br) nas legendas não estão sendo salvas. Toda vez que muda o vídeo, ele volta para o inglês.

    Alguém sabe o que eu posso fazer para ficar (pt-br) em todos os vídeos que tem legendas disponíveis?
    ——-
    my language settings (pt-br) in captions are not being saved. Every time he changes the video, he goes back to English.

    Anyone know what I can do to stay (pt-br) in all the videos that have subtitles available?

  23. Okay but how tf do I get rid of automatically translated video titles and these annoying auto cc on mobile? I don't want them and if I do I will turn them on myself. I really hate that the Youtube app always wants to translate everything to me. I know english okay, I don't need it translated. -.-
    On my PC I actually changed the default language to english, so it would stop translating everything (and butchering the meaning of everything by doing so), but how do I do this on mobile?

  24. I tried Google searching this but, for some reason my Closed Caption settings keep resetting? I haven't done anything different or went in and changed anything because I have never had to. I like it at a normal 100% but now the CC is so tiny I can barely read it. Then if I go in and click on 100% it's fine until I go to another video. How can I fix this or reset everything to go back to default? I'm sick of having to set it every time I want to watch something with closed caption.

  25. Here's an idea: how about an option to keep the subtitles centered during a movie?? Some morons seem to intentionally position them all over the damn place, and have apparently never heard of "eye trace", and the resulting eye strain and headaches from an erratic focal point (the focal point being the subtitles, in this case).

  26. YouTube my monetization is not enable please please my monetization 4000 horse and 1000 subscribe please on monetization

  27. Why is this option not available on the app ? everytime i turn the captions off on a music video it comes back on again if i play that same video over.

  28. Как сделать в YouTube , чтоб субтитры автоматически переключались на родной язык , а не включать каждый раз перевод ? Или у Вас нет такой настройки ? Если не предусмотрено , может подумаете над этим ?

  29. LITERALLY I SELECT 'VIDEO OVERRIDE' TO STOP THE CAPTION SIZE CHANGING BUT THEN THE NEXT VIDEO I'M ON THE CAPTIONS GO BACK TO MINUSCULE. Clownery, who in their right mind would watch anything with subtitles of that size?
