YouTube import not working - Hebrew

_Alisa_ il Israel

I tried to import a YouTube video with Hebrew with subtitles and it doesn't work. I am getting a message that there are no subs (when there are)

Here is a video for example -

I understand that Hebrew is a beta-language... Does it mean that import from YouTube doesn't work? That would be a pity...

      Thank you so much! I have many courses "up my sleeve" that I intend to upload to the Hebrew LingQ, so this YouTube bug is a major nuisance! :)

      Any updates on this request? As soon as it's solved I'll be able to start working on uploading some (many) courses I had in mind...

      As well, before I start - how can I know how many Hebrew-learners (I mean, more or less active ones) are there on LingQ at the moment?

        I just tried it, it works :D

        According to my data, 5723 users are learning / have learned Hebrew. I'm sure they'll be happy to know this YouTube issue has been fixed as well.

            Thank you so much for bugging LingQ--and Posting when it worked!

            I tried a few months ago and then gave up. But I just got one to work!

            What are some of your favorite links to import? I've found some good stuff on line, but have only done one YouTube Video with Closed captions. It is amazing, however...:)
