  7. Click "Done."
  8. Add a title and (optional) add a transcript using a .vtt file.
    • Note: .vtt files can sometimes be automatically generated and later edited on YouTube. You can also outsource this service for a $1.25/minute through https://www.rev.com/ in which you provide the video, and they create the transcript.
