Common trigger for YouTube 'Failed import'?

Hi - I’m getting a lot of YouTube failed imports - different desktop browsers using the extension and the mobile app. Is there are common trait to videos where this happens? Perhaps the owner has certain security features enabled?

Thanks for any input.

Do the videos have subtitles?

I’ve just checked and one that failed does not, another one that worked does have. Could that be it? Are subtitles necessary?

I guess so. I had the same issue and have so far only managed to import youtube videos with subtitles.

That’s helpful, thank you.

The videos you import from YouTube must have closed captions enabled.

I recommend avoiding videos with auto-closed captions. Instead, find videos with captions that were written by humans.

I also recommend using this to search for channels with manual closed captions.

I’ll see what I can find, thank you :slight_smile:

Yep, only videos with subtitles can be imported since, at the minimum, a lesson on LingQ has to have text content in it.

Thank you :slight_smile:

Makes sense :+1:
