Finally there is a way to do word searches of YouTube videos, so you don't have to watch the whole video to see if it contains the content you're looking for! Enter a YouTube URL and it will see if a closed caption file has been uploaded for the video. If it has, it can do a word search of the video in any listed language, and return every instance of the search term in the video, providing direct video links to the parts of the movie where the search term is mentioned. You can also save the search results as a text file.
Along with doing word searches, TranscriptSnagger can also download the full text transcript or save it as an SRT or VTT caption file. The text transcripts can either be in paragraph form or line-by-line, with or without timecode.
This is a great utility for anyone doing video research or who needs to provide accessible transcripts and captions for the deaf.
