How to Add and Edit Captions on your YouTube Videos

In this post, I'm going to show you how to easily add captions to your YouTube videos.

Confession: the first time I uploaded a YouTube video to my channel, I didn't really know that you could edit your captions YouTube. YouTube auto-generates your captions and this is really embarrassing... but one day I was watching one of my own videos and I didn't have the sound on but I had the captions on.

I have one video that has over 10,000 views and I started watching it and I was like oh my gosh… where I was saying, “hey there it's Lindsey.” It had auto-corrected and it said, “Hey there, I'm stinky!!” and I was like what? are you kidding me? this is like my highest performing video on YouTube and it says, I'm stinky?!?!? 😳oh my gosh… it was horrible… it's horrible.

I quickly learned how to edit my captions and here’s how you can too!

How to Create a Video Intro or Video Bumper for Your Videos

When I first started doing videos, I learned all kinds of new terms like lower third, bokeh and video bumper.

The bumper was the first one that I tackled and I’m thankful that I did. Think of a video bumper as being similar to a bumper on your car, it protects your car on both the front and the back. A video bumper does the same thing, it frames your video.

Does that make sense?

It’s also known as an intro! Of course, you don’t have to have an intro/video bumper but it does help you and your videos look a little bit more put together!
