Re: Gennaro makes Gnocchi

Maybe I'm missing the point ... I just watched the video ... Why would anyone require subtitles?

For deaf folks, hearing impaired.

eta: watching in a place where the sound would be intrusive to others when you don't want to use headphones.

Yes, of course smile.

Didn't turn on sub-titles as the above don't apply to me but, according to those who did (in this thread), the subtitles would have been worse than useless to those who did require them. They were mangled.

They were mangled in a hilarious way Maree.  It is just a mistake that they seem to have corrected on all but one video.

nope it is on a lot of the videos .. you have to select the automatic captions option though,  as some videos have two options for english captioning  and the ones that were done by humans are very accurate and the default when you click the cc icon.   you need to click it and then select the other english(automatic captions) option

apparently it isn't only Gennaro that it has a hard time understanding .. watch this chicken chow mein Jamie video

http://youtu.be/-u077g3R12w

and when he's off decent chicken, politics and loving chicken

Breeding ferociously hai.

lmao

Yes, if you do that you will get stupid captions on most videos - that's not put there by the video poster, it's generated by YouTube.

For me the funniest part about the gnocchi video is that you get the crazy captions by clicking "English" not "English (automatic)" - meaning those captions were not generated by YouTube, they were put there by whoever posted the video (but did not notice how bad they were).

Re: Gennaro makes Gnocchi

if you watch both options on the gnocchi vid  the captions are the same , so I doubt the crazy captions were added on purpose.
