In VidGrid, you can edit captions that you’ve requested or uploaded from within the video player.
Video creators/editors can edit captions within the video
Open a video with captions and open the caption slideout by clicking on the search icon.
Double click on caption line or click the edit icon in the top right to enable edit.
Make caption corrections and hit enter or click out of the text box to auto-save.
To edit multiple lines, click tab to go to the next line instead of enter to save.
Use spacebar to play the video when the caption sidebar is open.
Captions will automatically update on the player as you add them
Find and Replace
Removing or replacing word(s) in a caption file can be done individually or all at once
Search the term you are wanting to replace
Select the Find and Replace icon
Type in the word that will replace the search term
If the search word is to be removed, leave the "Replace" text input blank
Clicking "Replace" will replace the current queue selection (represented in blue)
Clicking Replace All will trigger a confirmation that all terms will be replaced
To remove fillers such as "uh" or "um" make sure you include a space before the word when it is searched or add a comma after (ie "um,") so that words that include those letters aren't affected (ie "number" or "jump")
Edit captions from the Dashboard:
To edit captions on VidGrid, click on the caption dashboard on the player.
Click on the “edit captions” icon next to the captions you would like to edit.
You will then see your caption text with timestamps. Make any edits to your captions here, and click “save.”
