I can't figure out how to capture the subtitles in a video being streamed with HLS from vidzi.tv. Any help would be appreciated. When you watch the video online, it has English subtitles. When I capture the streamed video (using livestreamer, ffmpeg, or youtube-dl), I get a MPEG-TS video with a MPEG4 video stream and an AAC audio stream, but no subtitles. I have tried searching for various subtitle extensions with URL Snooper, but haven't found any.
The URL for the video page is "http://vidzi.tv/j7trsublx4ax.html".
Command lines which capture the video (but not the subtitles) include:
"livestreamer -o Lulu_S01E01.ts hls://http://126.96.36.199/hls/gvuqio4c3a2qedz7nlkr5eltibkbhe4dr2rekk6y2uxkt5sxrv dtevgcxnsa/chunk.m3u8 best"
"ffmpeg -i http://188.8.131.52/hls/gvuqio4c3a2qedz7nlkr5eltibkbhe4dr2rekk6y2uxkt5sxrvdtevgcxnsa/chunk.m3u8 -c copy Lulu_S01E01.ts"
"youtube-dl -o %(title)s.%(ext)s http://vidzi.tv/j7trsublx4ax.html"
Can anyone show me how to determine the type of subtitle involved and how to download it? Thanks.
P.S. The webpage pops up windows with suspect ads. Please be careful and don't click on any of them.

Thanks for the URL. Can you show me how you determined it, so I can do it for myself in the future? Was it hidden in the source of a web page or did you find it in streaming data?
Thanks for the reference to the tools. With the Firefox Developer Tools Network Monitor I can pick out the URL for the subtitle files without difficulty. These tools should be quite useful in the future.
