X-Title Caption Export (XTCE) currently is only available tool for FCP X to convert 'captioned projects' directly to SRT or WebVTT files. It is a unique tool which is incredibly simple and fast - it's sometimes even easier and faster than exporting a CEA or iTT from FCPX.

FCPX since version 10.4.1 allows to create subtitles directly in the timeline with ease - or you just can import CEA-608 or iTunes iTT files. This is a huge step forward but is dedicated to create Closed Captions.
For those who like the simplicity of this handling but want the options of SRT or VTT files for a wide use in social media and HTML players it is the perfect tool.
Just drag a project from the FCPX browser to the application window - or an fcpxml to the app's icon or application window. That's it. The app will ask which stream(s) should be converted and the resulting SRT/VTT file(s) can be auto-saved to the desktop or a user defined folder or manually to any other location.

Known issues:
Captions must be assigned to the primary storyline.
As a workaround copy all captions to another sequence:
For "ease of use" reasons make a new caption at the start of your original sequence. Even if you get a warning.
Copy all captions.
Make a new sequence matching the settings of your original.
Go to the start of the new sequence and paste the captions.

As always there might be other unknown issues. Please report those issues.

Fine print:
As always use the app on your own risk. I'm not responsible for any damages that might happen.
Support is based on a 'I've spare time this moment', so sometimes you may have to wait for a few days to get a response. But I'll do my best.
