    Do YouTube transcripts are Youtube unique content? I was thinking of starting a blog reposting the video transcripts but I'm not sure if this would be good for SEO.

    Perhaps this would be simple syndication?

    I believe they would be unique content. However, the original uploader would still have the copyright, so be careful about what you advertize there.

    So I have no concrete answer for you, but I am interested in the topic for sure.

    So you plan on using the voice recognition thing in YT to get flawed content, or you planning on using someone to transcribe it/ transcribe it yourself?

    video transcripts work well when they are your own video and your readers really appreciate them as I do on Matthew Woodward`s blog.

    A great way is to transcribe the video then note down the important points and give your own opinion then give a link to the video. This way you would be providing useful information and a review on important points with your own experience.

    It could work really well.

    I once created an CMS site that enabled people to signup and post articles that they transcribed from youtube videos. They all needed editing, but the content passed copyscape and I resold the content to associated content.
