I uploaded a YouTube video into Arc and I am not able to add closed captioning. Will it be possible to add CC to YouTube videos uploaded into Arc?
Last we heard from the Arc team (this was at InstructureCon 2018) the terms of service for YouTube were such that they were not able to add this feature. So as it stands, YouTube videos can't be fed into the auto-captioner within Arc.
However, if you can obtain an actual .mp4 file of a YouTube video and upload that to Arc, you can add that file to Arc, generate captions, edit the captions, and then download the .srt file. You can then add that .srt file to the actual YouTube video within Arc to give it captions. It's roundabout, and you want to make sure you are authorized to get a copy of the YouTube video, but it can work in dire circumstances.
Thank you for your feedback. We may end up using this "roundabout" for some instances.
We follow a similar workflow that Andrew mentioned. There are some Firefox Add-Ins that might be helpful to get the .mp4 file. (We only use this in cases where we have a stated need for accommodation for a student and strongly encourage our faculty to try to source similar content that does have captions first.)
That does work, but not something I think most of us will use on a regular basis. Hopefully, they will get it figured out in the future.
