Recently we received some letters from YouTube users who asked us to write a post about how to download YouTube videos with subtitles. Most of these people are video editors, voice actors, or subtitle translators who need to download a subtitle file for study and translation. If you are one of these people, then you're coming to the right place since this post is mainly written for you and those who want to get subtitles on YouTube. Read on to get the details.
EaseUS MobiMover is a reliable video downloader that enables you to download YouTube videos with subtitles or closed captions (CC). Its simple interface and step-by-step tutorial make it incredibly easy to use. All you need to do is to copy and paste the URL of the video you'd like to download to EaseUS MobiMover and then choose a destination to house this video.
Beyond that, it also supports downloading videos from 1000+ video-sharing websites including Vimeo, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and more. Therefore, if you want to download Vimeo videos to your iPhone or save MySpace videos from BBC to iPad, using MobiMover is also a good choice.
Step 1. Run EaseUS MobiMover, go to "Video Downloader", and choose the device you want to save the downloaded YouTube videos. If you want to download YouTube videos to your mobile device, connect it to your PC first.
Step 2. Copy the URL of the YouTube video you want to download, paste it into the bar in MobiMover, then tap the "Download" button.
Step 3. After you click the "Download" button, MobiMover will quickly analyze the URL and download the YouTube video to your computer or iPhone/iPad/iPod touch.
If you want to get subtitles on YouTube as text or srt, then this method is what you need. Here are the steps to do it.
Step 1. Find a YouTube video with subtitles > Click the three dots below the video playback on the right.
Step 2. Then, you will be given three options: Report, Open transcript, Add translations > Just click "Open Transcript," which will open a transcript of the video in a window.
Step 3. Create a document on your computer for later use.
Step 4. Highlight the transcript text by dragging the slider bar to the right of the transcript box > Copy and paste the transcript to your document.
Step 5. Save the transcript by clicking "File" and click "Save as." Then, you can choose a wanted format from the drop-down list.
Note: If you want to download subtitles from YouTube videos in Srt format, you can copy the transcript to Notepad or TextEdit and then press "Save" on your PC. In the dropdown list select "All Files," then you can type a name for your file and add .srt to the end.
Apart from downloading YouTube videos with subtitles, you can also get subtitles on YouTube by recording these videos with EaseUS RecExperts - a simple and intuitive Windows screen recorder to capture full screen and webcam. After recording, you can add texts, lines, arrows, and other marks on videos. This is helpful to students, translators, and others who need to take notes on subtitles.
Sounds great? Now, you can download EaseUS RexExperts on your computer and follow the steps to record YouTube video subtitles.
Step 1. Launch EaseUS RecExperts. You can choose one of the four main functions on the main screen. Here you need to click "Record Screen".
Step 2. Click "Custom" to select a screen area to record. You may choose "Full Screen", "Selected Region", "Fixed Region", "Locked Window" or to customize window size here. If you want to record the screen and webcam at the same time, make sure you connected a webcam to your computer.
Step 3. Click "Microphone", and you may choose to record system sound only, record microphone only, record both, or record without audio.
Step 4. Click "REC" to start recording. After recording completed, the videos will be shown on the "Video List".
Step 5. Right-click the video recorded, you may preview, compress, edit, share the video, and do more.
By using the three basic tips and the bonus tip offered in this guide, we hope you've successfully downloaded YouTube videos with subtitles.
Of the four tips, the first tip is the most recommended for its fast download speed, ease of use, and high success rate.
The next is to use the YouTube feature to download the transcript, which can help you obtain text subtitles directly on the page of a specific video.
The last way is to use some screen recorders to get the job done. This is an indirect way that is not recommended but still worth a try.
