Description:

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.
INSTALLATION:
- download the file from the "Files" tab above
- create a directory "extensions" at this location and put the file "vlsub.lua" inside:
* Windows (all users): %ProgramFiles%VideoLANVLCluaextensions
* Windows (current user): %APPDATA%vlcluaextensions
* 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.

Limitation

* Impossible to automatically save the subtitles on Windows if the path to your video contain non ASCII (non-english) characters and the "search by hash" method will be slower.
* The "search by hash" method will fail on Windows if for video files >2Go (if VLC is compiled with lua 5.1 anyway)

/! 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:

It's obvious by now that the old version of this extension no longer works with the latest update of VLC. Are you going to fix it? Let us know what you're doing about it.

Hi
I've been trying to get the new VLSub extension to work but no luck so far. Can someone please explain the installation of the new VLSub extension (v0.10.0) as I suspect I've committed some error while doing so. Please help me out asap. Any help will be appreciated.

Sorry to bother you sir. But I try the new version and it doesn't work for me. It doesn't try me to kill the plug-in or anything, I just try to search and nothing happen. What's weirder is when I try to uninstall and reinstall VLC, the VLSub 9.0 is appearing in VLC lua extensions folder everytime. Despite the fact that I try clean installing multiple time. I can delete it. But 10.0 version just don't work. I don't know what I messed up. Any help would be appreciated. Windows 7 64-Bit.
