Q: I don't have a strong skill of the programs, but is there any way to easily download YouTube captions and subtitles in SRT format?
Q: Since YouTube is changing and all, the subtitle won't be downloaded whenever I want to download any foreign video. Any suggestion, please. Is it because the new CC button?
Q: I watched a movie on YouTube, it does have English subtitles. But when I downloaded it for playback offline, there are no subtitles. Why? How can I download YouTube subtitles?
As we know, YouTube is the dominant video-sharing website worldwide. You may notice that there is a white box labeled "CC" near the bottom right corner of some videos. When you click on it, YouTube will automatically generate subtitles/closed captions for the videos with speech recognition. This subtitle is independent, not embedded in the video. That's why there is no subtitle when you download YouTube videos.

However, not every video has the white "CC" box. In other words, if a downloaded video from YouTube without white "CC" box but has the subtitle, it must be an embedded subtitle in the video. Anyway, people always have a strong demand for YouTube cc download in daily life.
To download subtitles from YouTube, are you eager to find out the solutions? Here I will illustrate the YouTube subtitle downloader for you.
1. DownSub.com is the easiest way to download YouTube subtitles. All you need is that the link of the video owns subtitles/closed captions. Paste the link to the input area, and click "Download". Depending on the video, it may have subtitles in more than one language. Moreover, DownSub offers you to translate them to other languages though the translation might not be very accurate. The subtitle file is in SRT format so it will be compatible with many popular media players.
