Unable to get speaker names in a transcript

I have a zoom meeting URL. On opening it, it shows a conversations panel towards the right side and the video towards the left. This is fine.
When I download this the transcript of this video, the .vtt extension file shows me the timestamp, the conversation text but not the speaker name. Instead of the speaker name, it shows an incremental numeric digit. starting from 1.

Not quite sure why is this happening?

You need to use the TIMELINE file that is also in the meeting_recordings payload which contains the speaker’s names and timestamps. The tricky thing is the timestamps don’t align exactly…
