Tips. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tip 1: You can search for videos with subs on the channel page by scrolling down to upload previews and then searching for "CC". To scroll down quicker press the End button multiple times. Tested in Chrome.

Tip 2: When LingQ fails to import audio from YouTube video, use (use AdBlock) or similar service to save and upload audio to the lesson manually.

Tip 3: You can use the Filter/Subtitles option when searching for videos on YouTube. For example here is a request for "Fotografie":

      Thank you for the interesting channel, subscribed. Though, I won't add it to the list because there're no CCs. One video has subs, I'll import it:

        Um, might want to check again.

          No CC on the videos, but still good content. Thank you.

          • AKDiscer us United States

            Hmm, strange, almost every single video I've opened has an option for CC, there were a couple that didn't.

            I just opened that channel in IE, Chrome, and Firefox, and Safari, they all have hte CC option when you mouse over the video.

      Thank you! They have only 7 videos with subtitles, but channel itself is very useful. Added.

      November 01 at 20:33
      • Eismann de 독일

        No way! Every video I watched on their channel had both German and English subtitles, and for all levels.

        • Swedishfinnpolymath fi 핀란드

          The Easy German team has there own subtitles for the video in German and English but what SergeyFM is referring to is CC subtitles the ones you activate by clicking on the cog and CC subtitles.

          The only way to get access to Easy German's own subtitles is by being a patreon member, I think it is something like 8-10 €/per month.

          November 02 at 07:36
          • Eismann de 독일

            Well, he just needs to do it once, and then download all subs.

    There are alot of channels already, but I would like to add one more.

    WDR Reisen, they have subtitles in every video.

    At this moment I added more then 100 channels to the list. Such catalog is difficult to maintain and it clearly needs editing. Also, without updates this thread will go far down and nobody would find it.

    I'd like to keep this work available to everybody, any ideas how to achieve this? Realistically, I just have to let it go.

  • MarkE us United States

    Hey Sergey When you import German lessons into LingQ. How do you get the audio file? I have a way of doing It but it’s so time consuming. I have to play the entire tv show or whatever it is, and record it as it plays. Is there a faster way?

    March 03 at 21:29
    • SergeyFM ru 러시아 연방

      Hi, Mark!

      I use to get audio from youtube. It works with AdBlock on, so no adverts or anything.

      If you mean Tagesschau - I download mp4 video and extract mp3 from it (using Audacity). Other than that, I also tried to record streams several times, and it took too long to be practical.

      • 모더레이터
        Ress de 독일

        Is it legal?

        March 04 at 09:06
        • SergeyFM ru 러시아 연방

          I'm not a Jurist, but my educated guess would be: yes.

          1) , adBlock : you accept Terms of Use, so it's legal

          2) Audacity : is a free open-source multimedia software

          3) Content : general copyright laws are applied, including Fair Use doctrine.
