What is an SBV file?

An SBV file is a file used to add subtitles or closed captions to a YouTube video. It contains a series of start and end time stamps paired with the captions to show during those time periods. SBV files are saved in a plain text format.

SBV time stamps are formatted using the H:MM:SS.000 time format. These start and end time stamps correspond to playback times in the video the SBV file is intended to caption. The caption paired with each start and end time appears during that time period.

SBV files are similar to .SUB and .SRT files. YouTube recommends that novice caption creators create caption files using the SBV or SRT formats, since those formats are quite basic.

How do I open an SBV file?

You can open and edit an SBV file using any text editor, such as Notepad (Windows), TextEdit (Mac), or Atom. You can also view an SBV file's contents by dragging the file into any web browser.
