SBV Subtitle Files
The subtitle file generated by YouTube’s auto-sync process has an SBV extention, which essentially introduces a new subtitle format, and limits auto-sync-generated subtitles’ usefulness outside of YouTube applications. Fortunately, we’ve happened upon a relatively simple process by which SBV files can be converted to the commonly-used (and compatible with YouTube) SubRip (SRT) format, which we’ll outline here.
Download The SBV Subtitle File from YouTube
The YouTube “Captions and Subtitles” menu. (Click the image to view a larger version.)
The first step in the conversion is to login to your YouTube account, go to the listing of your videos, and click the “captions” button in the lower portion of the video details. (Alternatively, you can access the “Captions and Subtitles” menu from the video player page… the link is below the “embed” code and video description.) From the menu, download to your computer (“Save As”) the subtitle file you’d like to convert from the list of available caption tracks.
