Many videos on YouTube contain subtitiles on different languages and if you would like to download such video, probably you will need to download subtitiles too. You can download simple subtitiles as well as transcribed with 4K Video Downloader. As a result, you obtain srt. file supported by most of modern video players. Please, follow few simple steps to download the video with subtitles from YouTube.

Step 1: Download and install the 4K Video Downloader

Download and install the 4K Video Downloader application from the download page. It's available for Mac OS X, Windows and Linux.
<p>I made a tool on my website that downloads YouTube closed caption <br>data from videos and exports them to common formats. No need to download<br> any software, free, no limits, no ads. There's even an API available <br>for the programmers.<br></p><p>It just pains me to see people installing bloated, ad-ridden, bundled software for no real reason.</p><p>http://www.nitrxgen.net/youtube_cc_info/</p>
<p>Thank you! :D<br><br>You should make your own instructable here. I needed that to translate captions to my language but was worried about that 4K software as it looks like it contains malware/adware.</p>
<p>Eh.. I use 4K Video Downloader for a long time, for subtitles downloading in particular and can say for sure it has no malware/adware. Install a good antivirus program and check for yourself. There is also a proof on VirusTotal, the last version that was uploaded to the site (4.1) is checked there by quite a number of popular (and not so much) antiviruses:</p><p><a href="https://www.virustotal.com/en/url/1394f19ca6dadddebe16959b41a74fcd5ed3754a0d75bf1ee045284088f48fc3/analysis/" rel="nofollow">https://www.virustotal.com/en/url/1394f19ca6daddde...</a></p><p>The info is relevant - the last time the program was checked 10 hours ago (!). </p>
<p>Thanx!!! you've done a really nice job. Very usefull for geting videos into classroom where video's native language is not the classroom's one.</p>
<p>Awesome.... A big thank you!!! it is very easy...</p>
<p>Well, I did this, but although the srt subtitles downloaded, they still won't play with the movie...ARGHHH!!!!</p>
<p>What video player do you use? There can be problems with playing subtitles in default players (such as Windows Media), as well as with VLC, but I download subtitled videos with 4KVD and play them with Media Classic Player, works like a charm! I recommend trying it out.</p>
<p>Just when this program couldn't get any more awesome. Thanks!</p>
<p>I Recommend 4K Video Downloader too.</p><p>BTW You can find all recommended methods to download YouTube videos with subtitles here:</p><p><a href="http://www.megaleechers.com/2016/06/how-to-download-Youtube-4K-1080p.html" rel="nofollow">Megaleechers: How to Download YouTube 8K/4K/1080p/3D Videos?</a></p>
