1000 YouTube Videos Transcribed

Cedric @Sparky

Over 1000 YouTube Videos Transcribed!

Hit 1000 YouTube transcriptions!

Ever wish you could quickly read through a long YouTube video?

So did I.

That's why YTScribe.com is my first Indiehacker project. It lets you read any YouTube video.

It works by compiling and punctuating the automatic captions. And then it creates a new blog post with the full transcription for you to read.

You can use by installing the chrome extension or putting the YT URL in on the homepage.

How is it built?

I figured out the transcriptions in a Google Collab Notebook, and then I learned Django over two weekends and basically managed to cobble it together.

I got so excited over having a functioning web app that I bought the domain and hosting immediately.

If you have any comments or feedback, I'd love to hear it because I'm just starting my journey here.
