Uploading your own transcripts
You can add your own transcripts to a video, that are viewable as subtitles, by uploading .SRT files. For example, you might want to have subtitles in many of the languages supported in Fuse.
UTF-8 is the standard encoding format for .SRT files in Fuse. For information on how to convert your .SRT file to UTF-8, see Converting a .SRT file to UTF-8 section below.
If you want to upload your own Portuguese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, Russian, or Spanish subtitles, you must delete the auto-generated .SRT file before uploading your own.
When you upload a .SRT file, you must use the correct naming convention. The file must be named with the correct language code, as shown in Fuse's supported languages list. For example, if you are uploading a .SRT file containing French subtitles, the file must be named 'fr-FR'.
Once the .SRT file has been uploaded, you can change the label so that it is more human readable. For example, you might change fr-FR to Francais.
