Panopto Caption Downloader

The Panopto Caption Downloader userscript allows you to easily download captions from Panopto videos in a variety of languages. It provides a simple interface for selecting the caption language and optionally removing timestamps from the downloaded file. This script is compatible with most modern web browsers through the use of userscript manager extensions such as Greasemonkey, Tampermonkey, or Violentmonkey.

Usage Instructions

Once installed, navigate to any Panopto video page that matches the URL patterns specified in the script's metadata (e.g., https://*.panopto.com/Panopto/Pages/Viewer.aspx?id=*). The script automatically adds a "View Captions" button to the page.
