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 :)
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?
