  1. This link:
    I can use youtube-dl to download the video no problem. But I want to download the subtitles/closed captions.
    When I play the stream in the browser, I can click "cc" and the subtitles will appear no problem.
    But I want to use youtube-dl to download just the subtitles. I tried:
    youtube-dl --all-subs --skip-download ""
    but that doesn't seem to work. Is there anyway I can use youtube-dl to download the subtitles?

  3. I have same problem with this video:
    It has German subtitle that can play when streaming ("UT" on/off), but I cannot download it...
    With Firefox, right-clicking “Examine element”, tab “Network”, I got those two URLs :
    Trying to access them directly from the browser failed (404 page), but doing a right-click on the second one (the www link didn't work, 0 byte output) and selecting “Copy as cURL” I got this :
    curl "" -H "User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:83.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/83.0" -H "Accept: */*" -H "Accept-Language: fr,fr-FR;q=0.8,en-US;q=0.5,en;q=0.3" --compressed -H "Referer:" -H "Connection: keep-alive" -H "Cookie: population=40; _bb_optout=0; atidvisitor="%"7B"%"22name"%"22"%"3A"%"22atidvisitor"%"22"%"2C"%"22val"%"22"%"3A"%"7B"%"22vrn"%"22"%"3A"%"22-511893-"%"22"%"7D"%"2C"%"22options"%"22"%"3A"%"7B"%"22path"%"22"%"3A"%"22"%"2F"%"22"%"2C"%"22session"%"22"%"3A15724800"%"2C"%"22end"%"22"%"3A15724800"%"7D"%"7D; xtvrn=`$511893`$" -H "TE: Trailers"
    Then copying this in CMD, adding « --cacert cacert.pem », and « -o "name.xml" », it worked. Don't know what parts in the above command are required, and if it could be simplified. Of course curl.exe is required.

  4. I used Tubedigger and got the srt subtitle file instantly. I think you can use the free version of Tubedigger to do this. One strange thing: I noticed the subtitle timing is 10 hours advanced. I don't know why. I used software "Time Adjuster" to delay the subtitles by 10 hours.
