Choose Your Content

Link to your YouTube Account

If you have your own YouTube Channel, you can link Crowdscriber to your YouTube account. Doing so will grant Crowdscriber the ability to import your videos allowing you to choose the ones you'd like Transcribed.

Import Content

One of the powerful features of Crowdscriber is its ability to allow fans of content to initiate transcription for a content producer. To import a video or podcast, click the "Import Content" tab, from there you'll be able to upload an MP3 file or enter a URL for a YouTube or Podcast of your choosing.


Create a Link

You've chosen some content and now you are ready for some collaboration! To get started, Crowdscriber lets you create a "transcription link" for a specific language.
