    Hi, is there a software-only or hardware+sw solution for extracting the closed-captioning signal out of a DVD, and redirecting the text and timing info to a file? I'd like to use the text+video in a school project. At any rate, I suppose someone watching a DVD could manually type it all out (ugh).

    Thanks!

    I can't remember exactly what program it's called, but about a couple of years ago, a bundled program that came with my ATI PC TV Tuner have the ability to capture all the CC (but without time signature) and the text can be saved as .txt file.

    It can also grab CC from the video input.

    The program, however, is not a DVD player program so I couldn't grab the CC using that program.

    The point of my post?

    I think there is a program out there that can do that.

    CCParser can convert the closed captioning info from a DVD to a SubRip timed script file. I think the file comes with instructions on how to use it.

    Thanks a lot! I'll toy with that and the linked info as well for a while.
