Welcome to the OpenSubtitlesDownload.py wiki!
OpenSubtitlesDownload.py is a small Linux software written in python, built to help you quickly find and download subtitles for your favorite videos. It can be used as a nautilus script, or as a regular application working under GNOME or KDE desktop environments. You can also use it in full CLI (Command Line Interface) mode!
The subtitles search is done by precisely identifying your videos using a hash computed from your files, and not by using filenames. This way, you have more chance to get the exact subtitles corresponding to your videos, avoiding synchronization problems between the subtitles and the soundtrack.
The subtitles search and download service is powered by OpenSubtitles.org. Big thanks to their hard work on this amazing project! Be sure to give them your support if you appreciate the service provided, they sure need donations for handling ever growing hosting costs!
You can find this script on the download page.
You can adjust several settings to make OpenSubtitlesDownload.py even better experience suiting your every needs! Learn more on the Adjust settings page.
Available settings includes:
You can help us finding bugs, proposing new functionalities and more directly on this website! Click on the "New issue" button in the menu to do that.
You can browse the git repository here on GitHub, and submit patches and push requests!
OpenSubtitlesDownload.py is a free software released under the GPL v3 license.
If multiple subtitles are available, just pick one from the list!
Enjoy your subtitled video!
