How to Add Closed Captions and Subtitles to Soapbox Recordings

Soapbox is a video creation tool from Wistia that allows you to record your screen and webcam at the same time. It enables anyone to record, edit, and share high-quality videos using just a webcam.

Adding captions and subtitles to Soapbox videos is simple and involves just a few quick steps.

Step 1: Download the Video Within Soapbox

Once you’ve completely finished editing your Soapbox video and you’re ready to add captions, start by downloading the video within Soapbox.

First, under the Share tab click the Download button located on the right side of your screen.

(Note: Downloading Soapbox videos is a paid plan feature. To check out paid plan options, visit Soapbox Pricing and Plans.

Step 2: Upload Video to Wistia

Next, upload your Soapbox video to Wistia by logging into your Wistia account.

(If you do not already have a Wistia account, you should first create one now for free).

Once you’re logged in, enter the desired project in which you’d like your Soapbox video to be located. Under Project Actions select Upload and proceed to upload your Soapbox video to the Wistia project.

The newly uploaded video should then be located at the top of the list of videos.

Step 3: Submit Your Video for Captioning

After you’ve uploaded your Soapbox recording in the selected Wistia project, you can submit it to 3Play Media for captions and subtitles.

If you don’t already have a 3Play Media account, you can create one.

If you already have a 3Play Media account, follow these steps to add captions and subtitles with or without the roundtrip Wistia integration.

If you have a 3Play Media integration with Wistia, your captions will post back automatically.

If you do not, you will receive an email when your captions are finished and you can follow these steps to add them to your Soapbox recording in Wistia.

Step 4: Share Your Recording

Now you can share your Soapbox recording with the world so that people can view it with captions or subtitles!
