Ability to import youtube videos without subtitles
YouTube has a subtitles disabling function. Look at the settings.
Found a solution :)
thanks! but I had already found that solution. the thing is, it takes a lot of clicks and lingq servers are not that quick to respond to it, because things are written to database a lot. Also when you import it creates a new lesson by default and there's no way to change that. (in the import extention I make it default to quick imports). The fact that lingqs response times are not that quick makes it tedious to import in a way that takes steps.
Thank you for providing the instructions nevertheless
The reverse solution is....
Import the lyrics using the LingQ Extension.
Edit the lesson and in the resources tab, add the video URL.
It's not the fastest way but it's faster than the other method I guess. I'm not too sure if LingQ will allow videos without subs to be imported, I'll ask.
I just searched the forums here and found this because I'm experiencing the same limitation. Please allow users to import music viceos (or any video) and add the lyrics/subtitles themselves. 99% of the songs I want to learn don't have CC option on youtube for some reason. I can import the audio of the song and add the lyrics as the current import instructions mention on LingQs guide ( ). But I'd prefer to have the ability to import the video, even if subtitles aren't possible, and add the lyrics myself.
I could also use this for videos of people reading or acting out books (or theatrical plays) in my target language. Unfortunately some of the videos the subtitles are just hardcoded into the video or have no subtitles at all so they con't include CC. I have the book or script text so I could just add it to video in lingq.
Anyway for now it's easy to do a side by side option on my laptop. But on my phone I can't do that. Thanks!
Yes, it's possible to do what you're asking.
This video shows you how:
When you import a new lesson (manually on desktop) you have to click on the resources tab and on the drop down, click "video". Paste the video's URL in the designated field.
Perfect! Thanks Eric
