Create YouTube video captions in a few easy steps. Having a thriving YouTube video channel…
Videos are blowing up the Internet. It’s an exciting time of live-action, pre-recorded scripts, and carefully crafted “stories” through film. And with smartphones and video editing apps, anyone can create a high-quality video to promote their product, cause, or solution. It’s more imperative than ever to understand how to add a video to your webpages and the cielo24 VWrap makes it so much sweeter…
Fun Fact: Over 300 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute!
Embed a video on your webpage using the cielo24 video wrapper
Embedding a video simply means putting your video file into your webpage’s HTML coding. This allows you to integrate your video player with your webpage. One option available to cielo24 Enterprise customers is to wrap your videos with the cielo24 video wrapper and then embed the wrapper on your webpage through the many available configurations.
Place the video wherever you want, however you want: Using the video wrapper embed generator, you can display the video widget anywhere on your page – be it the sidebar, in the main body, etc. You can also keep the wrapper attached to the video or display them separately with the wrapper running simultaneously with the video.
Adding the video wrapper to your webpage is very simple:
- Select your desired sharing, display, branding, captioning, transcription, and foreign language settings
- Using the embed generator, configure a URL
- Click to ‘copy embed code’
- Place video wrapper HTML code on your webpage where desired
Fun Fact: 5 billion videos are watched on Youtube every single day.
Embed a captioned video on your webpage using HTML
Outside of using our cielo24 VWrap, video wrapper, you have two other options for embedding a video on your webpage. One is to use a third-party video player like YouTube and embed the pre-established code, which comes with its own pros and cons. Another option is to caption the video and then embed the file on your website using HTML. The following steps presume you have a cielo24 Self Serve captioning account and a WordPress hosted website.
NOTE: Captioning and transcribing your video content improves engagement, boosts SEO and increases page conversions. Not only do video captions help people engage with video content on mute (which 85% of people do), but the transcript also helps search engines crawl, rank and index your video content.
To get started you will need:
- a video file
- an .srt of your audio transcript
- a player to burn your captions
The process outlined below might seem highly technical – and it is – but once you’ve gone through the motions once or twice, it will be a cakewalk. The exciting and most challenging part will continue to be the curation of engaging video content.
To embed a captioned video file on your webpage using HTML:
- Create a free cielo24 Self Serve account and order your video captions
- Burn your “open” captions into your video using a player like VLC* and set your display settings
- Go to your WordPress account and open the webpage where you want to add the video.
- Open the WordPress editor and click on the Text tab
- Copy the HTML code for the pre-captioned video file and Paste it where you want it to be published on the webpage.
- Click back to the Visual tab on the WordPress editor
- Publish your page
Fun Fact: The number of hours people spend watching videos (aka watch time) on YouTube is up 60% year-over-year, the fastest growth we’ve seen in 2 years.
