Hi, my name is David and if this is your first time watching my videos and you get value from the content that you watch, kindly consider liking the video and sharing it with your friends, so that we can all learn together.

So I did a video a while back on how to easily download Facebook captions or subtitles.

And this method, particularly used something called inspecting code, where we’d get the code for this particular video.

And then when we do the inspect code, we’d extract the URL with the SRT subtitle file.

Now, Facebook has changed some few codes here and there.

And for some strange reason, you may or may not see the particular URL to the subtitle.

But that should not worry you because in this video, I’ll show you how you can easily– all you need to know is just the URL of the video, and you’ll be able to download the subtitles for that Facebook video as SRT or text.

Now, let’s go to Facebook.

And here have a video.

And this video has automatic captions, let’s just click on this particular title so that we can get the URL of this particular video.

Now click on it.

We and I’ll just pause it and when I click on the gear or the Settings icon, you’ll see auto generated captions.

And this is intentional.

I’ve done this intentionally so that you can see that this particular method also works with auto-generated captions, especially if you do live videos on Facebook, you can use this particular method.

So what we need is this particular URL here.

This one, just right click on it, copy. And then we go to the website

Now is an excellent website, you can use it to download subtitles from YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

So all we need to do is just enter the URL here, right click and paste.

And once we click on paste, click on extract and download.

Let’s just do that. And there it’s done.

Now if we scroll slightly to the bottom, you’ll see the title.

And then you’ll see the settings, you can download the Facebook video because it’s already been downloaded on this particular server.

Or you can just download the SRT or the text.

Let’s just click on SRT to download the SRT subtitles.

And it’s already downloaded, just click on open and you’ll see the SRT subtitles here.

Next up, let’s see the text file, just click on it.

You may want this especially if you want to repurpose this into a blog post.

Let’s just open it up. And here we have it.

So if we just let’s just move this to the side slightly, that’s the text file.

And then this is the SRT subtitle file.

So if we look at them, both of them side by side, they are identical it’s just that the SRT has the numbers and the time codes.

The text file has been stripped of the numbers and the time codes.

So that’s a super awesome and quick way to download Facebook captions, or subtitles as SRT or text files.

Super quick, super easy, using SaveSubs.

And just a note here is that once you download, a new tab pops up here, titled “My Files” and if you click on it, you’ll see that your files will be stored for 24 hours locally.

But if you don’t want, you can clear all but if you still want them.

You can also download this, but I’d recommend once you’re done just clear all your files.

So I’ll clear all.

And that’s it for this video.

That’s how you can quickly download Facebook, captions and subtitles as SRT or text using SaveSubs.
