27/04/2014, @el-gallinazo, please ensure latest Java version is installed on your system. Other Mac OS X users reported no issues when double-clicking Google2ST.jar. If you really needed this application for a project I am pretty sure you found the way to run it. 18/10/2010, Answering the one who reported "<YouTube URL>/user/sba#p/a/u/1/8G10w7DaSgU": You have to paste in the software the YouTube video URL, not a channel URL. For example, for your video: <YouTube URL>/watch?v=8G10w7DaSgU
"c. If you use another system, you should run on a shell or similar this command: "java -jar Google2SRT.jar". I hope MacOS users could forgive me..." I am a Mac user who doesn't forgive you because I really needed this app for a project. The UNIX command goes nowhere, but I forgot all my UNIX 20 years ago anyway.
Google2SRT is a very light and user-friendly java applet. While there are other ways to download human-made CC subtitles added to a YouTube video, Google2SRT, to my knowledge, is the only way to download YouTube's automatic captions.
Works fantastic and smooth! Very good app.
