Generate or upload subtitles to your video

You’ve crafted a great video and done everything you can to make it look its best. You’ve shared and promoted it across social media too. But the results fall short and aren't matching your expectations with the views and engagement.


While excellent video content is always the first level, subtitling is the crucial next stage you’ve missed. People who watch your videos can be from any corner of the world and might find it difficult to understand your speech. If they don’t understand your audio, you’ll lose them.

So, add subtitles to your videos and let your viewers enjoy your content.


To manage subtitles for your videos:

  1. Login to Hippo Video using your existing credentials.

  2. Click on the Library icon from the left navbar and select Videos and Documents.

  3. Then add subtitles to the video you’ve selected. 

  4. Below the video preview, click the Video Settings tab > Subtitles option from the left panel.

  1. Click on the Plus icon to check out the subtitle options.

  1. You can either generate a subtitle or upload a subtitle.
