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 files, not by using filename but by generating a unique hash signature from your files. This way, you have more chance to find 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 the ever growing hosting costs!
If multiple subtitles are available, just pick one from the list!
Enjoy your subtitled video!
You can download the latest developer version with the "downloads" buttons on the header of this page, or you can find various versions of the script on the download page of the wiki, with changelogs and everything!
