If i got i right Camtasia doesn't support VTT subtitle format. Can anyone recommend me some editor that makes VTT creation and editing easier than creating them in plain text editor?

Hey K.G.,

That is the case with Camtasia, yes. I will pass along the feedback to the team though!

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled
Please add support for creating/importing/exporting VTT captions..


Apparently it's part of the HTML5 standard, or standards process. And I don't control which web player is used, and the player we support, recommends VTT.

Would certainly suggest bumping this up on the development cycle. Office 365 video tool requires captions in the WebVTT format. There is no easy way to publish from Camtasia Studio for this format. The ideal situation would be to also have an option to publish to Office365 Video

I would also like to make a feature request that Camtasia Studio support export to WebVTT.  It is a valuable addition because, if I understand correctly, WebVTT is the only format that iPhone supports.

I would like it to export WebVTT in a way that is ADA compliant.

BONUS: Here is a GitHub that is working on a PHP library called Captioning that will convert the SRT format you already support to WebVTT: https://github.com/captioning/captioning

EDIT: My understanding is that WebVTT is the same thing as VTT.

I am having the same issues - how do you produce a SRT file in camtasia?  I have checked help and can't find anything.
