that is because the script file is opened as text in the internet browser: in this situation "save page as" or similar command to save the lua file

Can anybody tel me why i see only a long page of text when i press download ?....it shouldn't be a program ?

I say to that this is a useful add-on. It would spare me a lot of time finding lyrics that i don't understand when i'm listening songs.

Sorry for the confusion...i messed up the lyrics extension with the subtitles extension, although i encounter same problem with both extension. A long text page instead of the program.

I have nothing to do with the site, so I can't do anything.

About the possibility to save the subtitles, I have intention to add it; however the main purpose of the script is still to search and load in VLC.

I've already added the "download" feature in my mod of this script.. you can find it here: http://thepanz.netsons.org/post/vlc-and-opensubtitles-downloader

I think that we should merge our code! :)
Cheers

It works great in Windows; also, it works in Linux/Ubuntu, except that it it lacks this new feature to save the file.

Wow, great. The original one was not working for me (actually the url - http://oensubtitles.com is appended twice), but this one not only work perfectly but the download feature is great boon.

It turns out that the download button dos not render properly in IE or Firefox. And when it finally does, the bloddy download is opened in the browser..as text with code instead of being saved as a file..WTF is gooding on?

Anyways....Gread extension...except that it dos not save a *.srt file along with the movie for offline use...bloddy dum ass programmer. What is he thinking ......plain retarded and dumb is what that is? Tank god for XBMC.

if you don't like this addon you don't have to use it. no need to insult the developer.
why don't you go and program your own subtitles downloader.

dumb-ass
