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:

The download link is under the "files" tab (they changed the website recently) and you have to put this file in the directory mentionned in "Installation" part, depending on your OS.

Hello,
For those who have trouble with Vlsub 0.9.13, do the following. Go here C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc and open the hosts file in Notepad and at the end add, "92.240.234.122 api.opensubtitles.org" without quotes. Restart Vlc and this will solve the issue.

Thanks, that worked for me.
Mind you people, that a host file is part of you OS, not of VLC.

I had to add: 92.240.234.122 api.opensubtitles.org to ~/etc/hosts in Linux.

Is it save to conclude that it affects everybody?
Weather you are on Windows, Os-x or, as I do, on Linux?

What is the reason and why is there no solution?

Glad to see a number of others have had the same problem the fast day or so. Not working for me either. I'm on Windows 7 using VLC 2.2.4 The subtitles function worked like a charm until I tried to use it yesterday (2016-10-29). I've tried all the suggested fixes, the .lua download even did a complete uninstall and reinstall, but no luck. Waited a day and tried again thinking perhaps it was a problem at opensubtitles....but still no luck the afternoon of the next day. Why did it suddenly stop working? How to fix it. This function was the MAIN REASON I used VLC!
