Upload video subtitles

You can add subtitles to video assets in Sitecore Digital Asset Management (DAM) by uploading subtitle files on the asset details page.

To upload video subtitles:

  1. On the menu bar, click Assets.

  2. Click the video asset you want.

  3. On the Video subtitles pane of the asset details page, click Upload files .

  4. Upload a subtitles file using one of the following methods:

    • In the Upload tab, drag the file into the upload file area and click Done.
    • In the Upload tab, click Select files, select the file you want to upload, and click Done.
    • In the Import links tab, enter the URL of the file you want to import, and click Import.
  5. Optionally, to select the language of the subtitles, click the file name or click Edit language and, in the Edit language dialog box, select the language from the drop-down list and then click Save.

  6. Optionally, to remove or add information columns, click Columns and select the desired fields.

    As a result, the closed caption option (CC) shows in the media player and lets you select uploaded subtitles to play along with the video.


When uploaded from the asset details page, subtitle files are assigned the subtitle repository, not the standard one. If you want to create a public link for a subtitle file, the Search component of the Assets page must be configured to display such files.
