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:

 Downloading subtitles for streams

 by cipricus on: Oct 1 2014

It is possible.
After the video has started in VLC, start VLSub, put the proper name of the film, and download (see that 'Load and save' is selected in Configs).

An error message may appear saying that the subtitles cannot be saved. Then: 'Click here to open the file'. That will download the subtitles (maybe archived).

This may vary between VLSub versions. A VLC error window may open instead of the error message in the VLSub window. Then, click 'Show config', then 'VLsub working directory' which opens a folder where the subtitle file should be.

 VLC 2.2 pre4

I updated to the newer build (only 64-bit version is available right now) and VLSub doesn't work well with it. Just a heads up.

Config doesn't work, and research does but downloading the subtitle always fails with a file access error.

It seems like a problem access the directory. What do you have in Config > working directory? You can edit the path here, it should contain english characters only.

 not working with VLC 2.0.8

the VLSUB window shows up, calculates the hash, show names, but when clicking "Download selection" - the script fails.

Debug output is at: http://pastebin.com/ZSDp6Zwe

Also, if I might add 2 small suggestions:

1. Add an option to use a specific directory that the subs will be downloaded to (helps when using read only volumes)
2. An option to double click specific srt to download would be nice ;)

Overall, one of the BEST extensions that I've seen for VLC. Keep up the good work!

Is your drive Z: read only? If so no surprise it fail savings the subs.

your suggestions:
1) Ok, I'll try to care care of it this week-end. Someone else ask me this a lot time ago and I never did it.
2) Not possible, see my response here: https://github.com/exebetche/vlsub/issues/79

Greetings all,

I just wanted to compliment the author on this awesome (and under-appreciated by vlc devs) extension. I've been using this extension for years and signed up for vlc-addons mainly to give it another thumbs up and ever hopeful that vlc devs will see how much the community loves and needs this extension.

I've even started learning to code a bit in trying to understand those marvellous 2000 something lines of it. I primarily use it on os x and haven't had much luck with it since vlc 2.0.8. I'll try to upload a pic of some of the versions I've tried so far, will probably make you grinn execbetche ;) (--elsif sigh most likely;).

I'm sure I haven't done 'clean' trials many time (working directory and such). I'll have a look through the troubleshooting section so I can upload some logs you can work with now that vlc has an rc1 of 2.2.

In any event this message is primarily meant to thank and compliment you for your efforts so far and judging by your rating here I think I represent the majority of users.

Kind regards,

Wow, that's the nicer comment I've ever had here, thanks a lot man :)
I'm not sure to understand what you want to do with the code. Do you want to improve the extension, writing a new one or just make it work?
Anyway my code is almost not commented so it might not be the best place to learn coding. But feel free to explain to me what you want to achieve and ask me anything, I'm here to help.

 Request: adding language to filename of subtitles

 by karpa on: Oct 22 2014

thanks for the good work.

Would it be possible to add language code in the filename of downloaded subtitles in front of extension.

For example:
instead of getting
I would get
"The.Walking.Dead.S05E02.720p.WEB-DL.2CH.x265.HEVC-PSA.en.srt" for English subtitles.

VLC is still able to correctly associate subtitles with played file and I get different subtitles files for different languages (not overwriting each other).
