  1. Hello guys!

    I'm trying to download a video from Apple servers and I noticed that the vod_index.m3u8 file has indexed streams for subtitles in separate m3u8 streams. I tried downloading the file with FFmpeg, and it downloads the biggest video and audio but no subtitles. Is there a way to "transcode" those subtitle streams from m3u8 into an SRT file?

    FFProbe output
    Code:
    [hls @ 0x7ff20e008200] Can't support the subtitle(uri: https://p-events-delivery.akamaized.net/2109isftrwvmiekgrjkbbhxhfbkxjkoj/vod/cc/en/en.m3u8)

    Just paste the subtitle URL in ffmpeg and that's it.
    E.G. English subs:

    Code:
    ffmpeg.exe -i "https://p-events-delivery.akamaized.net/2109isftrwvmiekgrjkbbhxhfbkxjkoj/vod/cc/en/en.m3u8" output_subs_eng.srt
    And it'll do the rest

    Or if you put VOD url in there then use -map X:Y (where X&Y represent subtitle stream)
    EDIT: it seems that there are no sub map streams showing,so you'll just have to paste the direct sub url in there
