Is it planned to make ClipGrab able to download video external subtitles ? I think mainly about Youtube's subtitles.
This sounds like an interesting idea, I will see about that. Thanks for the idea :)
Thanks for taking my enquiry.
I have downloaded the latest version of clipgrab and am impressed with it's functionality . I was at the point of making a donation but have discovered that the downloaded video from youtube doesn't include subtitles. The settings on the youtube side permit subtitles to be displayed on the video when using the internet browser but they are absent in the ClipGrab downloaded file.
Please advise how to remedy this problem using MacOs 10.12.6.

Just last year I could download a YT video AND the YT subtitles. But now the only subtitles that download are actually connected to the video. Is there a way to 'fix' this? YT's closed captions aren't always correct, but when they are, it's good. I download favorite videos to avoid politicians, and certain obnoxious commercials. AND to have something to watch when the road grader cuts my phone line to my computer. I am extremely fond of Asian/Korean dramas. I need those sub titles. Thanks
Just FYI, until then:
I am currently able to get youtube videos and their subtitles (in my own language, English, if they are available) with the python script called "youtube-dl".(1)
$ /usr/bin/youtube-dl --write-sub --sub-format 'vtt/srt' --sub-lang en https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxxxxxxx
This will download and create two files: the video/audio file (usually as .mkv or .webm) and the subtitle file (as .en.vtt or .en.srt):
Now I can watch the movie in vlc(2):
$ vlc Movie-Title-xxxxxxxx.mkv
and vlc will automatically see the .srt (or .vtt) file and use it.
I noticed that youtube-dl also works for vimeo, dailymotion, and many others.
(1) http://rg3.github.com/youtube-dl/ (but it is already conveniently available in my OpenSUSE Linux distro repository as the "youtube-dl" package.)
(2) vlc: Videolan Player: https://www.videolan.org/vlc/ (this too is in my repo, though I do have to go to the Packman repo to get some extra codecs)
you can download free subtitles for the latest Hollywood movies for free. ( https://subs.dog/)
Hmm... Clipgrab seems to be open source? I did see a project about it on Github, but the website doesn't immediately make it obvious that it is.
If clipgrab would be open source, I would have coded it myself. I'll look for other options.
+1 for the feature request
Please add the subtitle feature to ClipGrab
Any update on this? I needed it today.
Is a very important feature that would be implemented soon.

I would also appreciate very much if you implement subtitles (from youtube videos).
Best regards and thank you for the great app.
Apparently this wasn't implemented :) would you consider adding this feature to ClipGrab?
