Custom captions for YouTube


When using the Upload/Create>Video or Audio option in Content to insert a video from YouTube, is there a way to add our own caption file (SRT or VTT)? I know this can be done when uploading a file. YouTube has removed the Community Captioning feature which we used in the past to add correctede captions to videos that our instructors used, but had poor quality captions.

    Hey @Neil.Griffin7375,

    Thanks for reaching out to us here at the Brightspace Community.

    I often edit the captions right within YouTube when inserting a video from YouTube in content inside Brightspace. Here is an article on how to Edit or remove captions in YouTube.

    I hope this information helps your explorations.
