The SEO Allied Video

To reference a video, the algorithms are based on text

The subtitles are therefore effective, but you also need to think about the titleat the descriptionto tags and the name of your source file. All these parts are made of text. Try to integrate your key words to see your video up when a request includes them. 

The problem with metadata is that the keywords used are often relatively short. Thanks to subtitles you will be able to include long tail keywords and thus have more chance that your video will be in the first results. And a well-referenced video is a visible video so you'll go all the more gain visibility and often, therefore, in traffic if your video is hosted on your website..

The video is therefore an ally of your SEO strategy. This strategy is so specific that the term VSEO was born.
