How to generate a URL for SRT/VTT files?

In this article, I will be showing an easy method to create a URL of your SRT or VTT files. I will be using a free service, GitHub Gist. With Gist, you can easily generate URLs of your text files. Here is a step by step explanation:

  1. Go to GitHub Gist
  2. Sign-up, or Login to your GitHub account
  3. Go to GitHub Gist again. It should look like this:
    github gist
  4. ​Fill out the page with your subtitle file. Here is an example below:
    github gist textbox
  5. Click on "Create secret gist".
  6. On the next page, click on the “Raw” button.
    raw button
  7. The next page is the URL of your SRT/VTT file. You can use it for your website.
    vtt file
