Why add subtitles to your videos online with Flixier?
Make your videos more accessible
Subtitles and captions are essential to ensure that your videos can be watched and enjoyed even by hearing impaired individuals.
Share videos on social media
The vast majority of people watch Facebook or Instagram videos muted, since they usually do it on their phone, while in public. Subtitles ensure that these people can still understand the message you’re trying to convey in your videos.
Expand your audience to new regions
Having subtitles in a different language than the one that’s being spoken on camera can help you expand your audience to different regions!
Get the job done fast
Because Flixier works in your browser and does all the hard work in the cloud, your videos will always be ready in 3 minutes or less. It doesn’t matter if you’re using a brand new Mac, a Windows laptop or a Chromebook!
Generate subtitles from video automatically
Easily create video subtitles by pressing just a button. Drag and drop one or more of the imported videos on the Flixier timeline, next click on it to make sure it is selected and a button called Generate Subtitle will appear on the right side of the screen. Press the Start button and the auto generation process will begin, there is nothing you need to do here but wait for the subtitle to appear. It can take anywhere from a couple of seconds to a few minutes depending on how long your video is. At this point you can also make adjustments to your subtitle.
I’ve been looking for a solution like Flixier for years. Now that my virtual team and I can edit projects together on the cloud with Flixier, it tripled my company’s video output! Super easy to use and unbelievably quick exports.
My main criteria for an editor was that the interface is familiar and most importantly that the renders were in the cloud and super fast. Flixier more than delivered in both. I've now been using it daily to edit Facebook videos for my 1M follower page.
I'm so relieved I found Flixier. I have a YouTube channel with over 700k subscribers and Flixier allows me to collaborate seamlessly with my team, they can work from any device at any time plus, renders are cloud powered and super super fast on any computer.
