Hello everyone! This is my first theme, I hope I'm styling it right...
So, I faced this problem: I need to download subtitles from a video from mtv.com (episode of the series 'My Life on MTV'). The fact is that I was able to download them from there (VTT format) after that I converted to SRT. But, every time when the page is refreshed, there will be a different video (different ads, which is very important). Subtitles are adjusted for ads, so the timecodes do not match. Here is my problem. Maybe you know how to solve it guys?

use StreamDetector plugin for firefox. Load the video. You will see something like cc.vtt in the list (when you click on the extension icon),copy that link,open in browser and full list of it should be there.
For example,for this episode:
Subtitles link: (link opens properly only if located in US or using US VPN,or possibly loads only for each user separately)
(to me it seems full length,timecodes match,i do not see any ads anywhere)
Then CTRL+S to save file locally (or just paste full url whatever), use ffmpeg commandline:
ffmpeg -i "https://seamless.mtvnservices.com/api/mgid:arc:episode:mtv.com:05127b43-ecdf-11ea-9225-70df2f866ace/3279473f-fb91-418b-b900-ac581003488c/en/cc.vtt" -scodec srt output_subs.srt

I just checked, if no ad blocking extensions so no embedded ads, but I have a small problem... I found the cc.vtt file via the extension, but I got this error
There was this link: https://seamless.mtvnservices.com/api/mgid:arc:episode:mtv.com:05127b43-ecdf-11ea-%209225%20...%20488c%20/%20en%20/%20cc.vtt (Those points. Seems like it was shorted.)
Can you please somehow help me?
If youtube-dl or other tools don't work, watch network traffic for request similar to this:
My problem with timecodes (sewn ad). Mine cc.vtt file looks like this:
[First 30 seconds - ad]
And the length of the video with ad:
Without ad it's about 22 minutes
And also I can't find again that cc.vtt file :/ I've played video about 7 minutes
