NetflixSubs Plugin for Kodi 18 (plugin.video.netflixsubs)
This plugin is not officially commisioned/supported by Netflix. The trademark "Netflix" is registered by "Netflix, Inc."
This plugin is based on the original Netflix plugin for Kodi and has been modified to automatically save SRT subtitles to a file on your PC.

Log in using your Netflix username and password, and then select a show or movie to play.
When you attempt to play a video, the subtitle files will automatically be written to disk, along with a file named Subtitle_Urls.txt which includes a list of all available subtitle streams for the most recently played video, and the language codes for each.
You can specify where you want to save the subtitle files within the plugin settings. You can also specify if you only want to download subtitles with a specific language code.
The plugin may not download subtitles properly the first time you run it after installation. If you encounter this problem please try exiting Kodi and try again.
Subtitle Availability (Why isn't the language I want available?)
When you normally view Netflix through your PC, TV, or other device, you may have access to a wide variety of subtitles, some of which can be enabled simply by changing the your language within the Netflix settings.
When using the Kodi NetflixSubs plugin, you may find that your available subtitles are different than what you can normally access. This is because Netflix ONLY takes your location into account when using this plugin. If you have tested multiple different videos and can not find the language that you want, then you may need to use a VPN from a country where that language is used. It may be difficult to find a working VPN, because Netflix actively attempts to block them, but this may be the only way to obtain foreign language subtitles in some cases.
