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 upload files icon.

  4. In the dialog, do one of the following:

    • Click My device, navigate to the location of the files, select them, and then click Open. Optionally, to add more files, click + Add more; otherwise click Upload files.

    • Click From link, paste links to the files you want to upload, and then click Import.

  5. Optionally, to select the language of the subtitles, click the file name or click Edit language Edit icon and, in the Edit language dialog, select the language from the drop-down list and then click Save.

  6. Optionally, to remove or add information columns, click Columns add or remove columns icon 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.
