How to Transcribe YouTube Video to Text Online with Third-Party Service​

In addition to the above two, you can also transcribe a YouTube video using a third-party service. Even though there are plenty, the one that is used and appreciated by many is Media.io or Kapwing. Good thing is that they supports both manual and auto transcript generation, and is capable of adding subtitles to the videos directly from within its interface.

The first way of transcribing a YouTube video is using Media.io Auto Subtitle Generator. As the name suggests, this online program uses powerful Artificial Intelligence to accurately detect and create subtitles from your video's voice narrations and background audio. You can transcribe YouTube to English, Spanish, German, and other common languages.

Here is how to quickly transcribe YouTube to text with Media.io:

Step 1: Load the YouTube Video

Run Media.io Auto Subtitle Generator and then press Upload Files Now. Once the editing studio launches, click From URL to paste the YouTube URL and add it to the editing timeline at the bottom of the screen.


Step 2: Choose a Language

Next, press the Subtitles tab on the left rail and then tap the Auto-Subtitle tab. Then, set the transcription language before clicking the Start auto-subtitle button. After that, Media.io will start creating subtitle tracks for your video automatically.


Step 3: Export the New Video with Text

After the program has finished analyzing the video and creating the subtitle tracks, choose an aspect ratio and tap Export to create the transcribed video. That’s all!

Benefits of Transcribing YouTube Videos​

You may need video transcriptions for several reasons, such as analyzing the summary of the entire speech in the video, extracting a single phrase or quote that was spoken in the clip, or making the video helpful even for those suffering from hearing impairment. When you transcribe a YouTube video, the transcript can be useful in many ways. Some of the most common benefits of transcribing a video include:

  • Search Engine Optimization
When you add subtitles, the text can appear in Google search results when someone types a similar phrase in the search box. This helps get more views to your videos, thus giving your channel popularity, and you, monetary gains in the long run.

  • Accent
If the speaker in the video is from a different region and is using an accent that you are not much comfortable with, you can turn on the subtitles and read the dialogs along with the video.

  • Repurposing on Blogs
If you own a blog that you have embedded your video to, the transcription could be used to add text to it so the target audience can get a fair idea of what the video is all about. This is useful because many people prefer reading over watching.
