Why Should You Add Subtitles to Your Facebook Video?
According to the latest data from Statista, Facebook's daily active users reached 2.06 billion in the second quarter of 2023. Among them, 85% of users prefer watching videos without sound. So, if you want your videos to reach a wider audience and enhance user engagement, adding subtitles to video could be your optimal choice.
How to Add Subtitles to Your Facebook Video?
There are two methods to swiftly add subtitles to your Facebook videos: add captions automatically and manually. Choose the one that best suits your Facebook page.
Facebook provides an auto-generated subtitle feature that can automatically generate subtitles for your video. To use this feature:
Step 1. Go to the "Setting" on your page.
Step 2. Navigate to the "Video", in the video setting, turn on the "Always Show Captions".
📺Here is a YouTube video tutorial to help you understand.
- 0.00 Intro
- 1:00 Subtitles
- 2:35 Upload
If you prefer more control over the subtitle content or accuracy, Facebook also allows users to manually upload subtitles to Facebook videos. Here's how to manually add subtitles to your Facebook video:
Step 1. Add Photos/Videos
Log in to Facebook, and click "Add Photos/Videos" to import the video you want to upload from your device.
Step 2. Add Subtitles
On the video upload interface, click "Edit" at the top left corner, then select "Add Captions." Click the "Upload" button to upload your SRT file. Then, click "Save."
Step 3. Publish Your Video and View
After publishing your video, click the "CC" button at the bottom right corner of the video. In the popup window, click the "Options" button to customize the background color, background opacity, text color, and more for your video subtitles.
Add Captions to Facebook Videos After Posting
If you need to add captions to Facebook videos after posting, follow these steps:
Step 1. Go to the video post and click on the three dots (...) in the upper-right corner. Choose "Edit post."
Step 2. Under "Video Captions," you can upload a subtitle file (SRT format).
If you don't have the SRT file for your Facebook video and you haven't created your own page, but still want to experience the joy of adding subtitles to your Facebook videos and reels, then the best solution is to use EaseUS VideoKit.
