    Is there any tool that can Autogenerate Russian CC for videos? I've been using the CC to translate videos from Russian to English. I'd upload a video, KOplayers would give me the Autogenerated CC with Russian text and then I'd translate that. But now, all of a sudden, CC are not appearing on my videos. And they aren't appearing in any videos posted recently by other people either. The CC button on recently uploaded videos is gone. I have been searching for a way to get them to work, but nothing works. I have tried the given method and the "Autogenerate" option is gone. I don't have a text to add my own captions, I need them to be autogenerated because I don't speak Russian. Is there any tool I can use for this until KOplayers decides to fix it?

      Hello again. Someone else has helped me out of this problem of mine. I don't find "Published Automatic Englsih" is because of my videos mostly are too long. They last around two hours. KOplayers takes 2-4 days for Completing CC that will appear on my videos. But this tutorial of yours still helped me much. Previously I just randomly used the function, and I didn't figure out how I operated to make them work. I need CC to help me to understand some videos which are without any scripts at hand. If I don't have CC I feel comfortable if I get stuck at some English words. Thank you very much for this video and all your responses to try to help me out. You're very kind. Have a great day! :)

      @Andrew Kan Hello :-) If I click on the add new or CC, there are two options. One is English, and there is a searching box (for languages). If I click "English", it will appear : select method (Transcribe and auto-sync, Create new Subtitles or CC,Upload a file). All of them are not automatic CC generated by KOplayers at all. I need automatic CC because my English listening is not very good, so I need to understand by the aid of CC.

    I have been the one without a script for over a year. With a script, I have done a couple times with super short videos, being less than 5 minutes long :D
