How to transcribe videos on Rumble

Rumble doesn't create captions like some of the videos on YouTube. But it's still pretty simple to download the audio track from a video on Rumble and then transcribe it, so you get subtitles or just the text version of the video.

1.) Install the yt-dlp command line tool. If you are on a mac you can use homebrew and run $ brew install yt-dlp

2.) Get the URL of the video on Rumble you want to transcribe. E.g.

3.) Download the audio of the video with yt-dlp

$ yt-dlp --extract-audio --audio-format mp3 --audio-quality 192

4.) Take the audio file and transcribe it. You can use our transcription service for this.

Also, if you need help downloading the file for transcription, just shoot us an email
