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:

I have Vlc 2.2 and using vlc-sub 0.9. Everytime I go to download the subtitles, nothing happens. I'm using OSX 10.9.5. When I try to download a different version on VLC, the extension won't work. The extension only works on 2.2. HELP.

Also using osx, I've used pretty much all the nightlies out there and have gotten it working on some but have gone back to using vlc 2.08, the only version that works pretty stable (in my experience). The only thing I miss about the later versions of vlc is that it remembers where you left off watching, other than that I don't see any big feature updates so I'm just waiting for vlc 2x for mac to come :). Make sure to delete everything vlc related when downgrading (I use easyfind for this chore, enable hidden files and such http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/11076/easyfind)

First I want to say that I am a VLC virgin. I've only been using it for a year or so and just now realized and found that there are so much more things that you can do with it.

I am trying to get VLSub to work and I followed the instructions as best I could and it's still not working. I've got Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit, as well as VLC Player Version 2.2.0-pre-3.

So, here is the url for the pastebin file that shows the messages in my VLC Player, http://pastebin.com/N52EgTDg, the errors at the end right when I press download selection is where it's stopping and not working.

Please Help Me!!!!!!!!

Thank you,

You have to download the last version of the script from here, the one included in Vlc is outdated. Then remove "C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\lua\extensions\VLSub.luac" and replace it with the new one, you should be ok.

As explained on top of the page :

VLSub is not working with Vlc 2.1.x, you can use one of these versions instead:
-Vlc 2.0.8 (stable)
http://download.videolan.org/pub/videolan/vlc/2.0.8/
- Vlc 2.2 (pre release)
http://download.videolan.org/testing/vlc-2.2.0-pre3/

Hi,
First of all thanks for this wonderful plugin, it´s very useful.

I have one problem with spanish subtitles. When i am trying to download subtitles in spanish (using the hash search) it appears this error message or similar sometimes:
" Falló lectura de archivo" [Error file reading]
"VLC could not open the file "C:\[...]\Archer 1x04 - Killing Utne (Espa+â-¦ol (Espa+â-¦a)).srt.gz" (Bad file descriptor)."
"VLC could not open the file "C:\[...]\Constantine 1x01 - Pilot (Español (España)).srt.gz" (Bad file descriptor)."

"VLC could not open the file "C:\[...]\Archer 1x01 - Mole Hunt (Espa§ol (Espa§a)HDTV.XviD-SYS).srt.gz" (Bad file descriptor)."

But the .gz with the rigth subtitle file is in the same folder as the video. I think that maybe the problem is that it can´t handle the "ñ" letter when it appears in the subtitle file name.

I am using the last nightly of VLC (Because i want to use this plugin) for windows 7 X64

Thank you! :D

I have same problem while trying to download subtitles in finnish.

"File reading failed:
VLC could not open the file "Kirjastot\Documents\TVjaElokuvat\Family Guy - All seasons plus extras\Season 1\Family.Guy.s01e01.Death.Has.a.Shadow.XviD-SChiZO.srt.gz" (Bad file descriptor)."

My guess is that something cant handle ANY "special" letter such as åöä in finnish whether they are in filename or in the subtitles themselves.

But anyways I am running 2.2.0-pre3 on win7 64 if that will help to resolve things.

Hi,

Despite having the config on "load and save", and not "manual download", the extension won't download and load the subtitles automatically. Instead, when clicking "download selection" I get a "download link", for a manual download.

What can I do to fix that?

Thanks for your help!

The Vlc extension system is instable and sometimes fail when you call a function when the movie change. So the best I can advice is to close the extension when you get your subtitles, and open the extension again to start a new search.

Hi !

This extensions seems really nice, however, i did not manage to make it worked.
Everything goes OK until i reach the "download link" displayed in green.
Search goes OK and when i hit "download selection", nothing happens except display the link which is not clickable (it is in blue but i can't do anything with it). And no subtitle file is being downloaded nor displaying on the video.
The link "VLSub working directory" in Config panel is not working better (if this is a link).

Besides, i have many "bugs" that can be related such as :
- once the extensions closes, i can't launch it a second time, but i can a third time.
- The buttons OK or Save or Close in different windows never close the windows but open the main one instead, above.

my config :
Mac OS 10.5.8 (can't update anymore) in french
VLC 2.0.8 (also tried 2.0.9) in french
VLSub 0.9.13 (anyway to get on older version ?) in english
searching for subs in english.

Last question : in config panel, what "user" and "password" are for ? filling them with my OS user is giving me more errors during search of subtitles. I leave them blank for now.

Thanks for your time

Hey, i come with some news.

I guess you don't want any older version to be available (en tout cas c'est chaud à trouver !), but i found one in the VLC 2.2. Do you have an agreement with Video Lan ? If so, this is great news !

Anyway, VLC 2.2-pre3 includes VLSub 0.9.10 which fixes every problems i have been reporting before !

That's a solution for me and maybe or clue for you...

A plus !

There's is no older version, the link here point to the latest. I just try to fix the bugs when people report them and put the fix into the script right away. I have no agreement with Videolan, they just asked me if they could include the script in Vlc and I said ok. I'm very surprised it works for you with the 0.9.10 version because it didn't work on Linux en Windows at the time. But again I don't have a Mac environment available to debug on this OS, so I can't investigate more on this bug for now.

Then there is following text in the Usage section:

Yes, now it works. Thanks.
I have one more thing for you to consider. If I stop playback and VLSub dialog remains open, I suggest to show download link rather than direct download of subtitles for stopped film. What do you think?
