LingQ extension not working (Google Chrome) (German)

I’m trying to import this video from YT. It’s giving me this message. “Error:The words must not be longer than 60 characters.” How to Learn German: My Journey to Fluency - YouTube

He gives 3 examples of long words. One of them is 64 characters long:

Rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabenübertragungsgesetz ( Beef Labeling Supervision Task Transfer Act)

I assume that’s what it’s breaking on. Maybe the developers can open the length up a little more =)

Otherwise maybe you can grab the entire subtitles another way and past them in a lesson and then just convert the youtube to mp3? I did a quick search on “extract youtube subtitles” and it looks like it gave a few hits so you might be able to do that. Then you can use YouTube to Mp3 Music Converter - YTMP3 to grab the audio and upload it.

Other than that, the makers of “Language Learning with Netflix” extension also now have a beta version of “Language Learning with Youtube” chrome extension. Maybe play around with that for this particular video. I still like to get the these into LingQ to be able to have on phone and tablet and also keep track of the words.

Yes, it is because of the long words. I imported this video manually (had to break those words down): 2020-7 Imported from YouTube, Luca Lampariello - How to L...
