Removing subtitles or videos

Updated August 15th, 2018


Please note that the removal of a video page or a subtitle set does not remove from your profile the entries about your having created/edited them.


Removing subtitles:
If you are the sole author of a subtitle set and if no other subtitles

have been translated from it, you can request its removal  

  •  in a reply to this topic if the video has not been added to any team, or
  •  if it has been added to a team, in a message to that team's admins.

When submitting the request, please

  1. Label as Remove Subtitles and language
  2. URL for the subtitle set's  page in Amara (it looks like this: http://amara.org/en/videos/NmkV5cbiCqUU/en/16497/ )
  3. Your Username
  4. Reason for taking down the subtitle set.


Removing videos:

If you have added a video to Amara by mistake and if its removal would not affect any subtitling work done by others, you can create a ticket via support@amara.org to request its removal:

  1. Label as Remove Video
  2. URL for the video's location in Amara (It looks like this: http://www.amara.org/en/videos/NmkV5cbiCqUU/info/learn-about-universal-subtitles/)
  3. Your Username
  4. Reason for taking down the video


Copyright-motivated removal requests:
If you are the copyright owner of the video, please note that Amara.org does not host any videos, we simply list and embed them for subtitling purposes.  Removing a video from Amara.org will not remove the video from wherever it is hosted.  If you need the Amara video listing and subtitles removed for copyright reasons, please submit a request at

Hello Claude;


Yes the Luchini interviews are in Film & Tv. I wasn't sure which would be best, but that seemed to fit. Captions Requested might be a more active group, however. So that would be fine also. You may move them if you wish, to CR. Thank you.

  1. Remove Subtitles and language
  2. https://amara.org/en/videos/qY1LiRHEyzjS/info/super-size-me-2004-mcdonalds-documentary/

  4. The subtitles late by about a minute, I'd fix it myself if there were a way to simply move all the subtitles back a minute.

Thank you for your request, Laura.


Actually, you can move all the subtitles back: the clock symbol above the subtitles opens a droplist that includes this possibility:



Would you try it, and if it does not work I'll delete the subtitles, but I hope it will!


Best


Claude

Thank you for your request, MKnight,


However I can only remove subtitles. For requesting the removal of videos, please create a ticket from https://support.amara.org/support/tickets/new. It will go to Amara tech staff who will be able to do the removal. In the ticket, please mention the URLs of both ages to be deleted. In the case of
https://amara.org/en/videos/qo27ahwfotL4/info/httpsb2kconan20080208mp4/ where you uploaded subtitles even if the video did not work, please specify that these subtitles are yours, because videos that have subtitles can only be removed it this does not deletes other people's work.


Best,

Hello, I mistakenly titled my  subtitle language as English, thinking that I will be able to rename it further, I did all subtitles. Then I realized that I can't rename it so I copied everything in Russian language. So now I need just to remove English language for my video. https://amara.org/ru/videos/btidEC0l2bjI/en/2471540/

By the way, how I can post this video with the subtitles?

Thank you for your request, Snigdha. Can you please confirm that your Amara username is  Svetlana Fomina?  I may only delete subtitles at their author's request, so it's a formality, but a needed one:


As to posting the video with the subtitles: its Amara page has a link to an embed code, which works on some but not all platforms. But if it does not work on your site, you can link to the Amara page. Another solution would be to contact the institution that published the video on YouTube, and suggest they add your Russian subtitles there: YouTube videos are easier to embed.


Best,


Claude

1.Remove subtitles spanish (they're not approved yet, but I can't erase them)

https://amara.org/es/videos/EN5rROTccrI6/es/2482230/

4. The author of the video wants to translate them or to edit mine but I prefere to erase them so she can do it, as I'm not sure if she's able to edit the subtitles 

Thank you for your request, Susana Carolina. However, this video has been added to the TED team, and I can only delete subtitles that 

  • have been added to the teams I'm admin of (Captions Requested and Music Captioning)  or
  • have not been added to any team.

So you should ask an admin of the TED team, or in a ticket - created via https://support.amara.org/support/tickets/new . The ticket will go to Amara's tech team who will be able to delete your subtitles and keep the task for the author of the video. Please mention that the Spanish subtitles are now marked as ready for revision. Though nobody has picked up the revision task, maybe you should  use both ways, lest someone starts the revision.


Please also note  the author of the video will need to be / become a member of the TED team in order to make the subtitles on Amara: could you let her know this, please?


Best,


Claude
