I have saved a YouTube video of 1.5 hrs after verifying that it has captions(Offline videos).

However when I play the offline video with the captions on, it still doesn't show any captions.

Please help to get the captions. Hope the offline saved video doesn't need to go waste. Please suggest any alternatives.

  • How did you save the video? Presumably you have the captions file?

I tried going to my YouTube settings, then to captions and changed the captions style. After that I opened the video I downloaded offline and it worked: it showed the subtitles again. Maybe that trick would work for you too next time you have that problem again.
