There are also Russian closed captions (subtitles) on these videos at the Vidyadhara’s and the Sakyong’s YouTube channels: The Vidyadhara, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche -Official Channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/TrungpaRinpoche) and Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche -Official YouTube Channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/officialsakyong).

Many people have had trouble finding the subtitles on YouTube, as most are not familiar with the term Closed Captions. So the CC or CC icon mean nothing to them.
So here are some guidelines:
See the Closed Captions (Subtitles) In YouTube.
You can set your Youtube account to show captions by default in your account Settings, under Playback Setup, check the “Always show captions” checkbox. You should then see a red CC icon below the video to the right. If you see a grey CC icon click it to make it red. The captions are now activated. (See more on that below)

Either way if no CC icon is visible, click the on the grey rectangular icon with a white triangle, beneath the video towards the right. You will then see a grey CC icon, click on that and it will then be red, something like CC.

YouTube will default to the language you have YouTube set to, if it is available.

See different language captions
To see the different language options and/or change the language of the Closed Captions (subtitles) hover mouse over (move the mouse over) the red CC icon below the video to the right (or first click the grey CC icon to make it red). You then see the list of the available langauges, click the one you want. You might need to scroll up or down if there are many languages. There is a, hard to see, transparent red colored scroll bar on the upper right. (See also “How to see more than 12 languages of captions” below)

In YouTube you can remove the caption background or change the font size and type
Click on the captions showing in the video, then:
• To toggle the background shading on or off, click in the player and type ‘b’.
• To make the captions bigger, click in the player and type ‘+’.
• To make the captions smaller, click in the player and type ‘-‘.
• You can also drag and drop the captions to different places in the video.
Also usually when you hover the mouse over the red CC caption button you also get the “other settings” option at the top of the list of languages. With that you can choose whether or not the captions have a background, the font size and type. There doesn’t seem to be any color options at this point.

For people interested in how the dharma is translated into different languages, you can pause the video at any point and switch between the different languages of the same caption.

Seeing (and/or coping) a Transcripts

To see the whole transcript as the video is playing in YouTube.
In addition to the captions on the video, in YouTube you can also see (and copy) the whole transcripts (full text of the captions) of all the languages available, as the video is playing. (This does not work on the “Featured video” on YouTube Channels’ main pages).

Beneath the video box, on the left there is a row of icons, the last to right, left of the “views” number, there is a small Interactive Transcript icon (somewhat like a page with lines). Click the icon to open a pane. As you watch the video, the transcript will scroll and highlight the current text that the video is at.
You can also click on a line in the transcript to jump to that part of the video.
Quite crafty, although this doesn’t seem to work on YouTube Channel’s main pages, it only works if you go to the other links. Like the one underneath the video on the main page.
