  1. Hey everyone,

    I've been trying for a couple of days now, to download subtitles from cbc.ca (Murdoch Mysteries). I have tried every software available (probably) and still no luck.
    I know it's a long shot, but does anyone know how to get hold of them?

    Cannot find embedded srt and the only vtt file looks like this:

    WEBVTT #Clearleap HLS Packager version: 4.0


    00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:03.000
    /images_1/CBC_MURDOCH_MYSTERIES_SEASON_05_S05E01_1.00000.jpg

    00:00:03.000 --> 00:00:06.000
    /images_1/CBC_MURDOCH_MYSTERIES_SEASON_05_S05E01_1.00001.jpg
    ...and so on.
    The images linked are only small screen shots of the episode, no subtitles or text.

    Best regards!
    Alex

    Afaik, the new cbc.ca content delivery system only has subtitles stored as a closed caption stream with the .ts video.
    The old cbc.ca system had srt/vtt/dfxp, but not the new one.

    So, download the .ts video, then extract/convert the closed caption stream (from the .ts) to srt using ffmpeg.
    Code:
    ffmpeg -f lavfi -i movie=input.ts[out+subcc]  -map 0:1  output.srt
    Where input.ts is the name of the downloaded video file.
    Here is an extracted example from the video you reference above: CBC_MURDOCH_MYSTERIES_SEASON_05_S05E01-8626221.srt

  3. Absolutely brilliant ponens! Thank you!
    Also thanks to you videobruger for your suggestion.

    Edit:

    Just one thought ponens. When using your provided code, I get this:

    1
    00:00:00,701 --> 00:00:04,305
    <font face="Monospace">{\an7}♪</font>

    2
    00:01:13,140 --> 00:01:15,676
    <font face="Monospace">{\an7}(Laugh)</font>

    3
    00:01:15,709 --> 00:01:17,678
    <font face="Monospace">{\an7}- Itís one in the morning.</font>

    4
    00:01:17,711 --> 00:01:19,880
    <font face="Monospace">{\an7}You never get over that,
    \h\h\h\h\h\hdo you?</font>

    5
    00:01:19,913 --> 00:01:22,749
    <font face="Monospace">{\an7}Still,</font>

    6
    00:01:22,783 --> 00:01:25,419
    <font face="Monospace">{\an7}damn sight better
    than the winter.</font>
    Would you know why I'm getting font tags and spaces?
    Tried it with CCextractor after that, worked great and much faster than ffmpeg.

    CCextractor is fine to use. I'm just accustomed to using ffmpeg for many things. Although I don't remember seeing font tags and spaces in the output that ffmpeg produced.
    Maybe it is the version of ffmpeg. But CCextractor, or whatever produces good/fast output, is great.
