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:

My VLC Debug Console link is " http://pastebin.com/BVzB7isk ", and my "vlc_log.txt" link is " http://pastebin.com/6y4TDmb8 ". Please help.
Thanks.

I have VLC player version 2.2.4 Weatherwax. I have also installed VLSub 0.10.0, but I'm still unable to download subtitles. Either it is too slow or it isn't working. Please help.

You still use VLSub version 0.9, you should update to 0.10 that you can download from here.

Ok it working fine using the 0.10 with the new option in the 'view' menu.
Thank you very much for your (both) help.

Mine's still not working. Have tried numerous times, but no use. I have updated the VLSub extension to version 0.10.0, but it's still not showing or downloading any subtitles.
Here's my debug log link "http://pastebin.com/HZfzXP2N".
Please help.

What I actually missed earlier is that Veelac solution is bringing a 'VLsub' option in the 'View' menu (above the 'download subtitles' I usually use).
If using this option, not error message anymore but no result either (but in that it could be because there is no ST available).
I try with something I know the ST are there and I keep you posted.
Thank you

Hello.
When I use VLsub it shows this message:
"Extension 'VLsub 0.9.13' does not respond. Do you want to kill it now?'
I choose "yes" and then my VLC player shuts down.
here's my "vlc_log.txt" link http://pastebin.com/HKKWTEs8.

Thanks

Linux, isn't it?
If so then add: 92.240.234.122 api.opensubtitles.org to ~/etc/hosts.

Could you be more specific?
I can't find 'the instructions above'
What exactly do you mean?

There is no download link, or I'm blind.
