Caption certification

Federal Communications Commission regulations require that uploaders provide us with closed captions for certain content that appeared on television in the United States on or after September 30, 2012. If your content does not require captions, you can inform us by selecting a certification in the "Advanced" tab when you upload your video.

If we receive a complaint regarding the availability of captions, we may ask you to update this certification information. You can do so by clicking “Edit” on that video in your Video Manager, and selecting a certification in the "Advanced Settings" tab.
