Barry, if I understand you correctly, YouTube does actually integrate
synchronise the transcript with the time based media. Once you provide the
captions to YouTube in an .srt file that includes the timings, or you use
the YouTube captions editor, then it handles everything else from there.

When viewing the video, you can click on the 'Transcript' option and
YouTube will display a scrolling transcript below the video.

The other huge advantage of providing captions in this way is Search Engine
Optimisation. search engines like Google can index every word of the
transcript, and can drive searches towards the video based the words spoken
in the video. Normally, it would just index the video title and
description.
