How to use the Video Preview in BWX Editor
*The main pre-requisite is to have a project with a .srt or .vtt file and a video (mp4 file) associated with this file (both actions should be done by the Project Manager in charge of the project, that will allow the subtitles to be previewed from the Editor).
- You will access the Editor as usual from your Task list:
- Once you are inside the Editor, you must click on the Preview's ellipsis (see screenshot below) and then on the
Video Preview button
⚠️ Note that depending on your screen size, you may need to first click on the "+" button to expand the Preview field, so you can have access to the "Video Preview" option.
Also, you may want to adjust the size of the Preview field using the same button or the "-" so you can see the Video in Full-screen mode or be able to see the video Video Preview and the Editor (recommended) at the same time while translating the content.
The Video Preview will open with the video paused. Before you run it, you must click on the
Preview button so you can load the subtitles and see the translated segments on it.
If a segment is empty, the Original/Source translation will be displayed as opposed to the translation.
Right under the Preview button, you can check the video's details, such as the file name and upload date and time.
⚠️ Note that every time you make a change to the translations, the Preview button must be hit to update the subtitles according to your most recent modifications.
It is also possible to navigate through specific subtitles on the video by clicking on a segment. Once you click on the segment, the video will automatically jump to that time so you can visualize your translation. You can navigate between segments when the video is running and also paused.
The Video Preview player has a few configurable options for you, at the bottom of its right side:
- Sound Volume
- Activate/Deactivate Captions
- Video Speed
- Picture in Picture Mode
Now you are all set to start working with the BWX Video Preview!
