With the temporary switch to online schooling, a few of our classes post videos to youtube and it can be difficult to go back and find specific parts of a lecture without going through the whole video. With Youtube Caption Search you can search for a word in the subtitles for a whole playlist or library of videos and find the timestamp to go directly to relevant parts of videos.
What it does
The user inputs a url for a youtube channel or playlist and a word to search for. Then a list of all occurrences of the word are printed include the name of the video and the timestamp of the occurence
How I built it
The program takes user input and a bash script runs the youtube-dl api to download the captions, then a java program parses through the information printing the results to the users screen.
