There are several ways to share a video on YouTube.
To get started, click the
link under the video you’d like to share, then select one of the following options:
Share this video:
This gives you a link that you can copy and paste somewhere else, like in an email message.
Link to a specific part of the video:
Before copying the link, select the
checkbox if you want to share a particular part of the video. For example, if you want to the video to start at 2 minutes and 30 seconds, select the checkbox, then type “2:30” into the box.
Click one of the social network icons (e.g. Facebook, Twitter) to share the video there.

YouTube will send an email to the email address(es) you enter. If the recipient doesn’t receive the video, ask them to check their spam folders, or add

Use automatic captioning (Youtube Help)
Automatic captions are available in English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.
Captions are a great way to make content accessible for viewers. YouTube can use speech recognition technology to automatically create captions for your videos. These automatic captions are generated by machine learning algorithms, so the quality of the captions may vary.
Review, edit, or unpublish automatic captions
If automatic captions are available, they'll automatically be published on the video. Automatic captions may not be ready at the time that you upload a video. Processing time depends on the complexity of the video's audio.
YouTube is constantly improving its speech recognition technology. However, automatic captions might misrepresent the spoken content due to mispronunciations, accents, dialects, or background noise. You should always review automatic captions and edit any parts that haven't been properly transcribed.
Here's how you can review automatic captions and make changes, if needed:
Go to your
by clicking your account in the top right >
Next to the video you want to add captions or subtitles to, click the drop-down menu next to the
Subtitles and CC
If automatic captions are available, you'll see
in the "Published" section to the right of the video.
Review automatic captions and use the
instructions to edit or remove
any parts that haven't been properly transcribed.
You can also
enable the video for community contributions
and let your viewers caption and translate your content instead.
Troubleshoot automatic captions issues
If your video doesn't generate automatic captions, it could be due to one or more of the following reasons:
The captions aren't available yet due to processing complex audio in the video.
The language in the video is not yet supported by automatic captions.
The video is too long.
The video has poor sound quality or contains speech that YouTube doesn't recognize.
There is a long period of silence at the beginning of the video.
