One thought on “Hiring experienced Django / JavaScript developers

  1. I sent an e-mail quite some time ago, but I never heard back. So now that I have something else to say I’ll try here as a comment and hope that helps.

    Just wanted to make you aware of Google2SRT (GPL), a fantastic tool to extract subtitles from YouTube and Google Videos and save them as .srt-files. Very useful for use with US.

    What would be totally awesome was if it is possible for you to implement this system into US, so that when someone submits a YT video with Closed Captions, US automatically asks if the person wants to import the subtitles from YT. That would make things a lot easier!
