Caption automatically finds subtitles for all your videos on Windows, Mac and Linux

22 mayo, 2021

Caption is one of those tools that once you start using it, you can’t live without it. What it does is extremely simple, it automates a rather tedious but necessary task for many: the download subtitles for our videos.

Our colleagues from Applesfera talked about it at the beginning of the year, but in the last days of December they have launched Caption 2.0 with new functions and it is also available for Windows and Linux plus macOS for the fabulous price of free.

Caption is a small open source project, and after the first version for Mac was so well received, they decided to rewrite the app almost from scratch and meet the biggest request from users, the versions for Windows and Linux.

The new version is much faster, has a new, more sophisticated search algorithm, offers notifications when subtitles are downloaded, support for multiple sources was added, and support for search subtitles for large amounts of videos at once.

Using the app is extremely easy, its interface is very minimal and straight to the point. All you have to do is drag any video to the Caption window and the program searches for the subtitle automatically.

When you find a compatible subtitle, download it immediately and saves it in the same folder with exactly the same video name, so you just have to play your series or movie.

You can drag one or more videos, the app works very, very fast. You can choose between multiple languages, including Spanish, although the best results are with English subtitles.

We have tested it on both Windows 10 and macOS High Sierra and in both systems it works perfectly, it is extremely fast, and if it weren’t because we found it almost on the last day of the year, it would enter our list of the best apps of the year. 2017.
