How to enable double subtitles to learn Spanish on YouTube for FREE! (New & Updated video)

I know I've shared about Dualsub before here on LingQ, but I did a new and updated video from my new computer--instead of just talking into a phone-- to really demonstrate how to use this amazing free tool.

I wish I knew how to enable double subtitles on YouTube when I was first trying to watch Spanish videos for native Spanish speakers online. It was very hard. I eventually learned about using Spanish subtitles on YouTube, which really helped me, but if I had known about using double subtitles, I would have watched a lot more native Spanish videos sooner. (Now, probably around 95% of the time or more, I don't use Spanish subtitles when I'm watching Spanish YouTube videos.)

Here's the link to the free Dualsub chrome extension to get double subtitles on YouTube:

Here's my new 9 minute tutorial on how to use Dualsub as well as some bonus tips:

    Do you know of any extension that creates "cc" for YouTube videos that do not have the "cc" option enabled? :)

      There is a program that I can run from my desktop to get the transcript out of these videos and it is of equal or better quality than YouTube's and has the time codes similar to an SRT or the XML that YouTube generates
