In addition, if someone has knowledge about automatising API calls to
Youtube (login using OAuth2 without having prompts every two weeks...)
in Python, feel free to reach me so we can improve this part as for
now, the upload is still not fully automatised within KDE infra.

Also, the source code is available in
https://invent.kde.org/websites/video-subtitles and Python is not my
strong language so feel free to update and improve it :).

> Hello! As part of the /KDE For All/ accessibility goal [1], KDE is now
> adding subtitles to videos, including translations.
> Will your team join us in making KDE's videos accessible for all?
> Recently Johnny Jazeix, GCompris contributor and leader in the
> mentorship programs SoK/GSoC, expanded the existing subtitling workflow
> so that the translation team is involved. Once translations are
> completed, posting videos in more languages is now more or less automatic.
> By subtitling videos and providing translations, KDE's media can reach
> more people and more communities around the world.
> So how does it work?
> The creator of the video uploads the SRT (subtitle formatted file) in
> English to Invent along with a short configuration file. Translators
> then translate the SRT into different languages. These translations will
> gradually be uploaded to both PeerTube and YouTube. For details about
> creating video subtitles using Kdenlive and uploading them to
> invent.kde.org, see this page at the community wiki:
> * https://community.kde.org/Video_Subtitles
> The whole process may take several days, as different translation teams
> work in different time zones and work at different rates. For examples
> of videos using the system on both platforms, see the following:
> * https://tube.kockatoo.org/w/3moubSFAnn6n5UAQoyuetW

> The Krita team has already begun using this workflow [2], and we would
> like to involve more and more of KDE's teams in this effort.
> For support, please reach out to the community at:

> For translation support, please see the wiki page:

> Thanks to Johnny Jazeix and Paul Brown for their excellent work in
> making this possible.
