CCExtractor 0.68

CCExtractor is a handy and reliable tool that analyzes MPEG and H264 video files and produces independent subtitle files from the closed captions data. CCExtractor is portable, small, and very fast. Supports DVD, HDTV transport streams, Replay TV. Use this to create .srt (subtitles) files for your TV captures, have transcripts so you can edit subtitles, etc. Closed captions are TV subtitles that you can turn on and off. The term Closed Captions refer to TV subtitles in NTSC, such as the US or Canada. In Europe Teletext (usually page 888) is used for subtitling. For now CCExtractor support only American TV captions. It will not work with European or Australian subtitles, the standard is just different.

What are closed captions for?
- Captioning is essential for people with hearing dissabilities, which is the main reason for captions to be a legal requirement for most primetime TV shows.
- Captions are also incredible useful for people learning a foreign language (usually English, Spanish or French)
- Because captions are plain text, they can be used to store accurate transcripts of newscasts.

How I do use subtitles once they are in a separate file?
CCExtractor generates files in the two most common formats: .srt (SubRip) and .smi (which is a Microsoft standard). Most players support at least .srt natively. You just need to name the .srt file as the file you want to play it with, for example sample.avi and Windows Media Player fans can download Local Subtitles for WMP - a subtitles plugin that allows you to play movies with subtitles in Windows 7 Media Player 12.

CCExtractor currently handles:
- DVDs.
- Most HDTV captures (where you save the Transport Stream).
- Captures where captions are recorded in bttv form
