VLSub is not working with Vlc 2.1.x, please update to 2.2.

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.

/!\ Troubleshooting /!\

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:

Any ideas?

 Unable to save subtitles

 by schoenblum on: Jul 27 2015

First of all, thanks for the great work. This should be really magnificent and make watching foreign films so much easier and simpler.

Unfortunately I seem to be unable to use it. After choosing and downloading a sub file I get a success (Subtitles loaded) and an error (Unable to save subtitles).

What can I do? If you need a log - where would I get it?

I'm on MacOS 10.10.4 and VLC 2.0.9 (I am also unable to update to 2.2.0 - maybe something is wrong with my VLC?)

Thanks in advance!

Hi and thanks. I can't tell you what the problem is, it might be that Vlc has read only access to the folder where your movie is stored. You cold try to put them in an other folder on your main partition to see if it works.
You can get the debug log in Tools > messages and set verbosity level to 2 before you try to save the subtitles. But I don't think the log will give you the reason why it can't write on this folder so it won't help.

 Extension wont open while streaming Popcorn Time

 by Estebanmend on: Aug 14 2015

I'm running on Windows 10, my VLC version is 2.2.1.

While using Popcorn Time and trying to stream through VLC, every time I try to open VLsub, simply nothing happens. (I haven't tried to stream from other sources, but I'd be disposed to do it in order to fix the bug).

Here's the debug console output:


I really hope this could be fixed.

Ok, as long as I understand, the problem is that Popcorn Time "tells" VLC that the name of the video is a local IP, so VLsub cannot search by hash, am I wrong?

What could I modify in order to open VLsub while streaming, manually introduce the name of the video I'm streaming and save and load the subtitle?

 VLSub still NOT working!!!

 by 1adam12 on: Aug 22 2015

You inform us the following:
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)

Yet I have done exactly that and it still does not work and keeps showing Error: code '401 Unauthorised' (200)
This is so frustrating how many times do I have to download and try it.
I have been using VLC and VLSub for years now and only until about a week ago it has been working fine......what has happened? and why cant it be fixed?

I'm not sure but I think that when opensubtitles start being overloaded, it serves the requests only for the logged-in users, perhaps as defense again ddos, I don't know.
So try this:
- create an account on opensubtitles.org
- on VLsub, click on "Config" and fill the field user name and password and save
- restart

I hope this helps
