Tiny extension that removes forced closed captions from Netflix’s Subtitles.
Removes Closed Captions, Hearing Impaired (HI) Subtitles, such as: [MUSIC PLAYING], (ENGINE REVVING), ♪ I’m singing in the rain ♪.
Comes with button to show closed captions, it appears at the rightmost corner of the omni-box, clicking it toggles CC On/Off.
+ Now works with multiple CC lines
+ Also blocks Music Parts ( off by default)
+ Persistent options across devices
I can’t provide you with a screenshot of this working as the image would be copyrighted, as would the subtitle itself I’d imagine.
This small extension came out of my own need for something like it, I enjoy watching TV Shows and Movies with subtitles, and Netflix has English subs for most of their catalogue, unfortunately most of it is Closed Captioned, I got annoyed by it so I worked out a RegEx expression to get rid of the CC part.
This extension is not in any way affiliated with Netflix.
Toggling doesn’t work. It removes CC but I don’t have an option to disable it?
A lifesaver extension! I really don’t get why Netflix doesn’t offer non-CC English subtitles to begin with…
The only problem I encountered is that it sometimes reset the preferences (I often have to turn off multi-line filtering, which more often than not causes issues of disappearing parts of subtitles).
Finally no more “[suspenseful music]”.
And I still have the option for lyrics to music.
This extension makes Netflix so much better. No more annoying CC’s 🙂
Those closed captions were slowly driving me crazy, so thanks a bunch for this.
Easy to use and intuitive
