What are YTT files and how to open them
Are you having problems opening a YTT file or just wondering what they contain? We explain what these files are used for and show you software that we know can open or otherwise handle your files.
What is a YTT file?
A .YTT file is a YouTube Timed Text Subtitles file.
Making a YouTube video accessible requires precision. You'll need the right file type to ensure subtitles and captions are included and that viewers can understand the audio. A YTT file provides this - it stores timed text data for a video.
The .ytt file is composed of entries corresponding to sections of video, each featuring text displayed at set start and end times, plus format information such as font size, color and position on screen. To use it, simply upload the file to YouTube's video manager, and the captions will play automatically when it's played.
This offers great benefit - allowing people with hearing impairments or those speaking different languages access to your content.
