INSTALL INFORMATION

INSTALL VIDEO

Amazon Prime uses a different mechanism than Youtube/Netflix to retrieve their subtitles. Unfortunately they have managed to hide their subtitles by placing them in a different scope of data. We need to utilize a tool like TamperMonkey which allows greater control of webpage manipulation. You will still need to install the Amazon Prime Tools Extension in conjunction.
