How to download and search in Google text captions file from a youtube video.
There are couple of solution that can be found on Google in the referece section. All the automatic ways didn't work for me. Below is a manual method that I used to extract the subtitles (caption) file from a Google video.
- Open a video page in Chrome browser.
- Enable debuging and reqeuest trucking by pressing F12 in Chrome.
- Enable caption in the video.
- Navigate into the Network tab and find the last timedtext request (the last at the bottom)
- Right click on it and open that file in a new tab; An xml file containing subtitles with the imestamps should be opened.
