Importing YouTube videos with embedded subtitles?

I tried importing a YouTube video into LingQ but it didn’t work and the following error message pops up ”Please check your internet connection or try again later. Request failed: bad request (400).“ The video doesn’t have subtitles available in the settings but it has subtitles embedded on the screen.

Does this only support certain streams and what kind of video can I import?

Videos with embedded subtitles can’t be imported, our reader can’t recognize and import them as they are part of the image. Video needs to have subtitles available in the settings.


hi, so for example, if i want to import that tv show -its so hard to find arabic resources out there… which has in option, arabic subtitles or English subtitles, is it possible? thank you in advance

Sorry but no, we can’t support importing from that source at the moment.
