YouTube synchronizing

YouTube offers automatic transcription services (which isn't always perfect) and timing functions (which are recommended).  Of course, all captioning starts with a recording and a transcript of that recording.  The steps for utilizing the YouTube automatic timing is:

  1. Create a recording (following YouTube standards) and upload to YouTube
  2. Create the transcript
  3. Go to MyVideos in YouTube, select the video in step 1 and select Edit
  4. Select the caption option and uphold the transcript file

The recording's captions (previously the transcript) will be synchronized with the recording.
