QNapi is free software for automatic fetching subtitles for given movie file. It uses online databases such as NapiProjekt, OpenSubtitles and Napisy24. It is based on Qt5 library, so it can be launched on any supported operating system, including Windows, OSX and Linux.
Latest binary packages are available at http://qnapi.github.io/#download
Building from source
- C++ compiler with c++11 support installed (
g++or MinGW for Windows), present in
- Qt 5.2+ (most recent 5.x recommended) installed with
PATH(you can find one at http://www.qt.io/download-open-source/)
QNapi requires these binary dependencies:
- p7zip (7z, 7za) - to unpack subtitles, which are commonly compressed with 7zip
- libmediainfo - to retrieve movie info such as dimensions, duration and frame rate
Linux/UNIX users can find these dependencies in separate packages.
Statically compiled p7zip binaries are provided in this repository for Windows/OSX
macx/content/7za, respectively. Similarly,
compiled libmediainfo libraries are provided for Windows/OSX in
WARNING! Precompiled binaries are stripped from the source archive!
Cloning the source code
First, you have to clone project source code using git client:
$ git clone --recursive https://github.com/QNapi/qnapi.git
To compile the application, you have to execute two following commands in
qnapi root directory:
This will produce
CONFIG+=no_guito qmake invocation you can disable building command-line or graphical interface binaries.
$ make (or
mingw32-make on Windows)
This will compile the sources and build executable binary (or app bundle on OSX).
Important! Windows users have to execute one more command:
$ make install(or
This one will copy all binaries, libraries and other dependencies to
By default, output binaries are placed by
make in different locations, depending on your operating system:
- Linux -
qnapiin root project directory
- OSX -
- Windows -
After you locate your binaries, you can run the application.
For proper subtitle extraction after download, 7zip executable is required to be passed in application's settings. Linux users have to install 7zip binary package from distribution repositories or compile on its own. For Windows and OSX there are pre-built binaries included in this repository, in
macxdirectories appropriately and should be automatically detected by the application.
Making redistributable package
appdmg script installed. You can found it at https://github.com/LinusU/node-appdmg
Building .dmg image
To build .dmg image for OSX with nice, drag&drop installer, you have to execute:
$ make appdmg
QNapi-x.y.z.dmg will appear in
macx directory when command is completed.
You need to have NSIS 2.x installed. You can found it at http://nsis.sourceforge.net
Also, you will need to manually install NSIS plugin nsProcess. It can be found at http://nsis.sourceforge.net/NsProcess_plugin
Building Windows installer
Installer script is placed at
win32/QNapi-setup.nsi. You can build binary exe package using NSIS user interface (by
right mouse button -> compile NSIS script) or from command line:
$ C:\Path\To\makensis.exe QNapi-setup.nsi
After a while,
QNapi-x.y.z-setup.exe file will appear in
