CCExtractor is a comprehensive and powerful TV captions extraction tool that will transform the subtitle streams included in any TV program into STR text files that you can edit and use. This open source application is packed up with dozens of options and professional settings, giving you a level of versatility and flexibility that you will not easily find anywhere else. Actually, it is easy to find the immense amount of settings and possibilities available a tad overwhelming sometimes. Besides, they are all crammed into small interface windows full of wordy explanations and features that make the whole thing exciting and hard to follow at the same time. The basic functionality offered by CCExtractor is the possibility of storing all the text that forms TV captions and DVD closed captions into a STR text file. Unlike commonly used DVD subtitles, captions are not images that require OCR technology to identify and 'extract' the text - they are a pure text already, which guarantees a perfect extraction of the whole script. Thus, you will be able to edit the subtitle and correct or improve the script, or to use the SRT file to add the corresponding subtitles to a modified version of the same video file (i.e., when a change of format has taken place). The whole process is pretty straightforward, as long as you are happy with the default options provided. However, if you want CCExtractor to make things your own way, be prepared to spend some time trying to make out all the technicalities involved in the different features and settings.
