Nice post op.

 

Also try Kangxi, and, queen's legendary show (and anything with CC on the link etc).

Also, If you are the one.

Good comment on the filters - note also the channel search on the one above.

 

Also viki is an underrated tool, with already inbuilt functionality similar to what you are trying to do.

Thanks! 

 

I did try Viki, but also found it hard to find shows in Chinese subtitled in Chinese, as the focus is on English subs. Do you have links to shows 100% subtitled in Chinese?

A great post, I hadn't realised there were so many youtube videos with soft subs. I was also very excited to see from your link there's a TV version of the book 解密, however I watched the first episode and it looks like they've dumbed down the book, turned the TV series into just another spy/action show :cry:

Click on the link and go to the shows listed at the bottom. Also, can sign up for translating projects and join a group to get the original subs, for most other Chinese shows.

I've added a bit more info since the original post: Added a few dramas, ordered them by # of first episode views, etc.

 

Please share any other dramas you might find that have soft Chinese subtitles. Thanks!

Very nice list, thanks! For downloading I recommend youtube-dl (with the --all-subs option).

Updated list with three shows found on Netflix and Viki.

 

After spending an inordinate amount of time searching for shows, I've now settled with "Great Marriage" for intensive listening practice. It does not seem overly cheesy. And after spending an equally stupid amount of time searching for software, I've settled with LaMP player to play the video.

You can download both video and subs from Viki if you find the right sites.

 

For subtitles on Viki, downsub.com works well - lets you pick which language to download.
