VLSub

VLC Extensions

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:

Fix broken extension after opensubtitles uses a new CDN

You inform us the following:
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/

Yet I have done exactly that and it still does not work and keeps showing Error: code '401 Unauthorised' (200)
This is so frustrating how many times do I have to download and try it.
I have been using VLC and VLSub for years now and only until about a week ago it has been working fine......what has happened? and why cant it be fixed?

I'm not sure but I think that when opensubtitles start being overloaded, it serves the requests only for the logged-in users, perhaps as defense again ddos, I don't know.
So try this:
- create an account on opensubtitles.org
- on VLsub, click on "Config" and fill the field user name and password and save
- restart

I hope this helps

I'm running on Windows 10, my VLC version is 2.2.1.

While using Popcorn Time and trying to stream through VLC, every time I try to open VLsub, simply nothing happens. (I haven't tried to stream from other sources, but I'd be disposed to do it in order to fix the bug).

Here's the debug console output:

I really hope this could be fixed.

Ok, as long as I understand, the problem is that Popcorn Time "tells" VLC that the name of the video is a local IP, so VLsub cannot search by hash, am I wrong?

What could I modify in order to open VLsub while streaming, manually introduce the name of the video I'm streaming and save and load the subtitle?

Hi!

First of all, thanks for the great work. This should be really magnificent and make watching foreign films so much easier and simpler.

Unfortunately I seem to be unable to use it. After choosing and downloading a sub file I get a success (Subtitles loaded) and an error (Unable to save subtitles).

What can I do? If you need a log - where would I get it?

I'm on MacOS 10.10.4 and VLC 2.0.9 (I am also unable to update to 2.2.0 - maybe something is wrong with my VLC?)

Thanks in advance!
Daniel

Hi and thanks. I can't tell you what the problem is, it might be that Vlc has read only access to the folder where your movie is stored. You cold try to put them in an other folder on your main partition to see if it works.
You can get the debug log in Tools > messages and set verbosity level to 2 before you try to save the subtitles. But I don't think the log will give you the reason why it can't write on this folder so it won't help.

Hi, I have been using vlsub successfully (with a few server errors here and there) for a few weeks, since getting the latest VLC that includes it in the install.
Today it started behaving in a new way - finding the necessary subs files but 'sticking' [with a displayed full progress bar] on the "downloading subtitles" step. a rar file and autorenamed sub file appear in the directory, but the extension hangs and the subs do not function.

I think opensubtitles.org change their policy on downloading, now it works only if you create a user account on their website and enter your username and password on "Config" in VLsub, otherwise the download is blocked.

Hi all

When I search for the subtitles, several show up in the list. However, when I click on the subtitle I would like to download, and press the "download" button, nothing happens.

Please find a copy of the log on http://pastebin.com/pe6PwEzY.

Thanks in advance!

You have to download the last version of the script from here, the one included in Vlc is outdated. Then remove "/Applications/VLC.app/Contents/MacOS/share/lua/extensions/VLSub.luac" and replace it with the new one.

I am not a programmer. When you say: "create a directory "extensions" at this location and put the file "vlsub.lua" inside:" where is "this location" and "inside" of what?

If you learn how to read, you will see that below that step tells you what to put where for each operating system and depending what system you have that is what you put where...simple stuff really just need to learn how to read instructions.

i dont like the opensubtitles subs: - they insert advertising inside the movie! - they mention their name at the end of the subtitles, BEFORE the end of the movie, come on, could they wait the credits at least ? - many times the subs found are not accurate to the file, not synced, or HI Now i get subs from subscene, they're more reliable and less annoying. Too bad because VLSub was a great idea.
