gcap - Youtube closed caption downloader
gcap [-i] [-t] [-r <regexp>] [--proxy=<addr> | --no-proxy] [--help] <url> | <video_id>
gcap is a command line tool for downloading Youtube closed captions. The downloaded closed captions are saved in SubRip (srt) file format. The srt files are saved as "$videoid_$langid.srt" by default.
--help Print help and exit. --version Print version and exit. -q, --quiet Be quiet. -i, --interactive Open the interactive prompt which can be used to select the items. gcap selects all items by default. See also "INTERACTIVE PROMPT". -t, --title Parse video title and use it in the output filename(s) instead of video ID. The default is no. -r, --regexp=arg Cleanup video title using the specified arg regular expression. The default is "/(\w|\s)/g". --proxy arg Use arg for HTTP proxy, e.g. "http://foo:1234". Overrides the http_proxy environment setting. --no-proxy Disable use of HTTP proxy. Overrides both "--proxy" and http_proxy environment settings.
Use the "--interactive" switch to open the prompt. Note that gcap uses (as of 0.1.0) the Umph::Prompt module for this. Once the prompt opens, type "help" to get a list of commands available to the prompt.
gcap 0QRO3gKj3qw gcap "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0QRO3gKj3qw" Both yield the same results. gcap -ti 0QRO3gKj3qw Same as above two but use video title in the filename and choose which of the closed captions should be downloaded.
Exits 0 on success, otherwise 1.
$HOME/.gcaprc, for example: echo "--interactive" >> ~/.gcaprc
Availability The following error message produced by gcap (or the XML::DOM module) typically indicates that the video does not have any closed captions available for it (URL omitted for brewity): Couldn't parsefile [...] with LWP: no element found at line 1, column 0, byte -1 at [...]/XML/Parser.pm [...] http_proxy gcap depends on XML::DOM which uses LWP::UserAgent to download the data. Note that LWP::UserAgent reads http_proxy environment setting. e.g.: env http_proxy=http://foo:1234 gcap video_id
