However, downloading YouTube videos with CC is not as straightforward as it may seem. YouTube does not provide a direct way to download videos with subtitles, and many online video downloaders do not support this feature either. So how can you download YouTube videos with CC easily and quickly?


In this article, we will show you four good ways to download YouTube videos with subtitles using different tools and methods. You will learn how to:


  • Copy transcripts from YouTube



  • Use a subtitle downloader



  • Use Open Video Downloader



  • Use VLC Player



By the end of this article, you will be able to download any YouTube video with CC in your preferred language and format. Let's get started!


How to Copy Transcripts from YouTube




One of the easiest ways to download YouTube videos with CC is to copy the transcripts from YouTube and paste them into a text document. This method works for any video that has subtitles or closed captions on YouTube, whether they are auto-generated or manually uploaded by the creator.


To copy transcripts from YouTube, follow these steps:


  • Navigate to a YouTube video with subtitles. Go to https://www.youtube.com in a web browser and use the search bar at the top or other options to find a video that has subtitles. To see if a video has subtitles, play the video and click the icon that resembles a box with "CC" in the bottom right corner of the video playback. If the video has subtitles, you will see them on screen.



  • Click below the video. It's the icon with three dots below the video playback on the right. This displays a pop-up menu.



  • Click Open Transcript. It's the second option in the pop-up menu that appears when you click the menu icon below the video. This opens a transcript of the video in a window to the right of the video.



  • Click followed by Toggle Timestamps (Optional). If you don't want the timestamps to appear next to each line of text in the transcript, you can click the icon with three dots above the window with the transcript and to the right. Then click Toggle Timestamps to turn them off.



  • Open a new text document. Use any text editor of your choice to open a new, blank text document. You can use Notepad, TextEdit, Word, Pages, or any other text editor.



  • Highlight and copy the entire transcript text. The easiest way to highlight the text is to start from the bottom and go to the top. Drag the slider bar to the right of the transcript box all the way down. Click and drag from bottom to top to highlight the entire transcript.



  • Copy and paste the transcript. Right-click the highlighted text in the transcript on YouTube. Then click Copy. Then right-click your blank text document and click Paste.



  • Save the transcript. To save the transcript, click File and click Save as (or Save on Mac). Type a name for the file next to "Filename" and click Save.



Congratulations! You have successfully downloaded a YouTube video with CC as a text document. You can now open it with any text editor or word processor and edit it as you wish.
