- Rated 3 out of 5by lnstar, 4 years agoDOES work with Firefox ESR v52.9. Does NOT work with Firefox Quantum v.60. WHY does Mozilla make such useful extensions so hard to use???
Developer responseposted 4 years agoHi Instar,
Thanks for using my add-on.
I don't have Firefox Quantum v.60 on my computer. I tried with Firefox Quantum v.61.0.2 (64 bit) on Windows and it seems to be OK.
Please try to update your Firefox, or let me know your operating system (Windows, Ubuntu, Linux Mint,...).

If this addon also converted auto-generated subtitles in an update, THAT would be incredible (I had to piece together an AutoHotKey script to be able to do it, but it's clunky and doesn't do nearly as well as the pure download of the srt file this addon offers).
- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 13897579, 4 years agoRecently it does not work properly. It cannot check out if Youtube video has subtitle or not. Therefore closed captions of some videos can not be downloaded.
It worked very well before. But not now.
- Rated 5 out of 5by scrutinizer, 5 years agoI'm not very keen on using add-ons and any other kind extensions for their notorious ability to cause every type of corruption of browsers' functionality but this is a much needed add-on for a person that watches English-speaking YouTube videos and doesn't want any unknown word to slip through his attention for later scrutiny in order to extend his/her learning ability. Sadly more and more YT videos adopt auto-generation of subtitles which this add-on can do nothing about. Auto-generation as it comes from the notion's definition occurs at run-time only, so there's no technical option to extract subtitles stream. I was able to download a SRT file only for one video so far.
- Rated 4 out of 5by Cath_S, 5 years agoCe module fait exactement ce qu'il promet de faire. Je ne donne que 4/5 pour inciter le développeur à ajouter une fonctionnalité permettant de télécharger aussi les sous-titres auto-générés par YouTube ;)
- Rated 1 out of 5by Nathan Wailes, 5 years agoIt's not totally fair to give this a one-star review since the name of the addon is "Subtitle Downloader" and not "Transcript Downloader", but I think the creator should add a clarification to the addon description saying that this does not download Google's auto-generated transcripts.
