VLSub is not working with Vlc 2.1.x, you can use one of these versions instead:
-Vlc 2.0.8 (stable)
- Vlc 2.2 (pre release)

Search and download subtitles from opensubtitles.org using the hash of the video currently playing or its title.
- click on the download button below
- save the archive and extract the file "vlsub.lua"
- create a directory "extensions" at this location and put the file "vlsub.lua" inside:
* Windows (all users): %ProgramFiles%\VideoLAN\VLC\lua\extensions\
* Windows (current user): %APPDATA%\vlc\lua\extensions\
* Linux (all users): /usr/lib/vlc/lua/extensions/
* Linux (current user): ~/.local/share/vlc/lua/extensions/
* Mac OS X (all users): /Applications/VLC.app/Contents/MacOS/share/lua/extensions/
* Mac OS X (current user): /Users/%your_name%/Library/Application Support/org.videolan.vlc/lua/extensions/

...or use the installer below if you're on Windows 7 (32 or 64)

To start the extension click on View > VLSub or Vlc > Extensions > VLSub on Mac OS.

If you have other issue you can ask for a solution here or on github but please get the full vlc debug log and add it as a pastebin to your post. The procedure is explained here:

 not downloading, not displaying

 by Kaham on: Nov 5 2014

Hi !

This extensions seems really nice, however, i did not manage to make it worked.
Everything goes OK until i reach the "download link" displayed in green.
Search goes OK and when i hit "download selection", nothing happens except display the link which is not clickable (it is in blue but i can't do anything with it). And no subtitle file is being downloaded nor displaying on the video.
The link "VLSub working directory" in Config panel is not working better (if this is a link).

Besides, i have many "bugs" that can be related such as :
- once the extensions closes, i can't launch it a second time, but i can a third time.
- The buttons OK or Save or Close in different windows never close the windows but open the main one instead, above.

my config :
Mac OS 10.5.8 (can't update anymore) in french
VLC 2.0.8 (also tried 2.0.9) in french
VLSub 0.9.13 (anyway to get on older version ?) in english
searching for subs in english.

Last question : in config panel, what "user" and "password" are for ? filling them with my OS user is giving me more errors during search of subtitles. I leave them blank for now.

Thanks for your time

Hey, i come with some news.

I guess you don't want any older version to be available (en tout cas c'est chaud à trouver !), but i found one in the VLC 2.2. Do you have an agreement with Video Lan ? If so, this is great news !

Anyway, VLC 2.2-pre3 includes VLSub 0.9.10 which fixes every problems i have been reporting before !

That's a solution for me and maybe or clue for you...

A plus !

There's is no older version, the link here point to the latest. I just try to fix the bugs when people report them and put the fix into the script right away. I have no agreement with Videolan, they just asked me if they could include the script in Vlc and I said ok. I'm very surprised it works for you with the 0.9.10 version because it didn't work on Linux en Windows at the time. But again I don't have a Mac environment available to debug on this OS, so I can't investigate more on this bug for now.

The Vlc extension system is instable and sometimes fail when you call a function when the movie change. So the best I can advice is to close the extension when you get your subtitles, and open the extension again to start a new search.

 Subtitles not downloaded and loaded automatically

 by wblock on: Nov 11 2014

Despite having the config on "load and save", and not "manual download", the extension won't download and load the subtitles automatically. Instead, when clicking "download selection" I get a "download link", for a manual download.

What can I do to fix that?

Thanks for your help!

VLC version: 2.0.8
VLsub version: 0.9.13

I think I fixed it, could you download the script again and confirm it works.

 Problems with VLsub extracting spanish subtitles

 by thorin on: Nov 18 2014

First of all thanks for this wonderful plugin, it´s very useful.

I have one problem with spanish subtitles. When i am trying to download subtitles in spanish (using the hash search) it appears this error message or similar sometimes:
" Falló lectura de archivo" [Error file reading]
"VLC could not open the file "C:\[...]\Archer 1x04 - Killing Utne (Espa+â-¦ol (Espa+â-¦a)).srt.gz" (Bad file descriptor)."
"VLC could not open the file "C:\[...]\Constantine 1x01 - Pilot (Español (España)).srt.gz" (Bad file descriptor)."

"VLC could not open the file "C:\[...]\Archer 1x01 - Mole Hunt (Espa§ol (Espa§a)HDTV.XviD-SYS).srt.gz" (Bad file descriptor)."

But the .gz with the rigth subtitle file is in the same folder as the video. I think that maybe the problem is that it can´t handle the "ñ" letter when it appears in the subtitle file name.

I am using the last nightly of VLC (Because i want to use this plugin) for windows 7 X64

Thank you! :D

I have same problem while trying to download subtitles in finnish.

"File reading failed:
VLC could not open the file "Kirjastot\Documents\TVjaElokuvat\Family Guy - All seasons plus extras\Season 1\Family.Guy.s01e01.Death.Has.a.Shadow.XviD-SChiZO.srt.gz" (Bad file descriptor)."

My guess is that something cant handle ANY "special" letter such as åöä in finnish whether they are in filename or in the subtitles themselves.

But anyways I am running 2.2.0-pre3 on win7 64 if that will help to resolve things.
