The file is a .srt and YouTube accepts that.
If you open it in a note pad program, it will look like this:

A man accused of robbing a Bellevue drug store didn't get too far.

00:00:03,767 --> 00:00:08,000
Police rushed to the Rite Aid near Factoria Square about 1 o'clock this morning.

00:00:08,000 --> 00:00:12,000
A man with a gun had confronted employees and made off with some drugs and cash.

00:00:12,010 --> 00:00:14,500
The K9 unit tracked the man to where he was hiding.

00:00:14,501 --> 00:00:19,501
Police arrested him and recoved all of the stolen drugs and money.

And that is an example of how you can make subtitles on your YouTube videos. If you have any other questions, YouTube offers help at their Help Center.
