This is what happens when you have the slightest error in your captioning text. The numbers at the bottom are not supposed to show up — they are time codes — but they showed up because I accidentally typed “0:01.28.500” instead of “0:01:28.500.”

    A bit of a late comment, I know, but there’s a Mac subtitling app called Miyu that can export in the SubRip format required by Google. I’ve tried it out and it works quite intuitively once you’ve read the tutorial. It also exports to QuickTime with overlaid subtitles, for sites like YouTube that don’t have fancy closed-captioning features.

    I’m not a Mac user so I don’t really know which software would work on Mac OSX. Maybe some of my Mac friends would know more about this and I can try to search the Internet for software that you can try out.

    I learned of Subtitle Workshop this morning, but I can’t use it on my Mac. Yes, I have an Intel Mac, and I could run Windows on it if I wanted to, but I don’t want to. 🙂 I’ve been looking for a Mac program that does the same thing, but I haven’t found one. Do you know of one?

    Ouch… you painfully typing out each line??

    I will be posting a good workflow for CC’ing your Google Video using Subtitle Workshop.

    It will minimize the pain of accurately timecoding your lines of text.
