FYI You can use youtube-dl to download the subtitles too

If you already got the video and just want the subtitles:
youtube-dl --write-sub --sub-lang en --skip-download URL

Where "URL" is the link

This skips the downloading of the video and just gets the English subtitles

Or if you want the auto-generated subtitles:
youtube-dl --write-auto-sub --sub-lang en --skip-download URL

German is "de", Japanese is "jp" and so on...

VLC should be able to play your video with the downloaded subs

@cypnk for #Linguistics researchers, this is a good way to get a time aligned transcript of video.

The resulting file can be converted to linguist friendly formats like #Praat TextGrid.

Some converters are here:

@cypnk youtube-dl can also embed the subtitles into the file! youtube-dl --all-subs --embed-subs URL.
