YouTube Video Caption/Subtitle Downloader

YouTube Video Caption/Subtitle Downloader


I enjoy watching captioned talks, but sometimes when i'm busy doing something else or the
network bandwidth is low, i have to download the videos and watch them later. The problem
is YouTube doesn't allow downloading videos captions unless you're the owner of the
channel and here where this script comes handy. You can download captions in it's SubRip
Text format (srt), add it to your favourite video player and enjoy the show!
