I downloaded the automatic captions and time stamps that were created for my YouTube video, and then laboriously cleaned them up, by editing the sbv file with Notepad++. I have done this in the past, several years ago.

Now, I can't find the way to upload my revised version.

I guess I should have used the built-in tool for editing the subtitles, but I would not like to start over.

Is there a way to upload my edited version?

I'm thinking maybe I should upload the text, and then let YouTube sync automatically?

Work-around: I downloaded the video (which I no longer had a local copy of), gave it a different title, and was able to upload my revised caption file during the new content creation.

The video is about an hour long, and the upload took less than 15 minutes.
