Subtitle to speech video player for Android TV

Video with computer generated voice over

An increasing number of people are making YouTube videos without showing their face or using their voice. A subtitle to speech program now allows users to create videos with computer-generated voiceovers.. (subtitle to speech)

How to make videos with computer generated voice over

You may have seen MEME videos on YouTube created using Balabolka. However, Balabolka lacks support for timed speak-out in video subtitle formats like .srt, .ass, or .ssa. As a result, the videos often have continuous voiceovers without proper breaks. While this can be entertaining for MEME videos, what if we want the Android device to speak the subtitles at the precise timing?

It’s possible and easy by using the Photo Viewer for Android TV software. It is designed for Android TV so you will need to run it on Mi Box, or Nvidia Shield or Android TV systems, but if you want to record the video with Android TTS voice you probably need to get a Mi Box or Nvidia Shield and a HDMI capture card.

First step, preapre SRT subtitle for your video

If you are a video creator who wants to make subtitle .srt file for your video, which can be used as voice over source file, and be uploaded to YouTube later, you actually have several softwares to choose, but in this section we use CyberLink PowerDirector as an example.

Second step, bring the video and subtitle files to Android TV device

Once you have the subtitle file and video file, make them in the same filename (exception the extension part), and copy them to an USB thumb drive and insert it into Mi Box/Nvidia Shield/Android TV, and then download the Photo Viewer for Android TV and use it to play the video with real time computer generated voice over for the subtitle.

Third step, combine the audio and video into a final output

To capture and record content from devices like Mi Box/Nvidia Shield, creators need to set up HDMI output to their capturing device and record it on a PC. This equipment is commonly used by YouTubers, so it’s not a major challenge for most.
