Dear Olli,

yes, we will upload the subtitles to YouTube (some are already there),
and no gadgets are required to view the subtitles there.

To view the subtitles on Wikimedia Commons, viewers will have to
enable the mwEmbed gadget. We hope that it'll become part of the
standard Commons experience in the future.

All best,

Erik Möller
Deputy Director, Wikimedia Foundation
