No problem :) - Nov 07 2016
opensubtitles.org is down for maintenace, see for yourself:
http://www.opensubtitles.org/ - Nov 07 2016
You still use VLSub version 0.9, you should update to 0.10 that you can download from here. - Nov 06 2016
Please give your debug log as mentioned in the Troubleshooting section. - Nov 06 2016

No need to do that anymore, just update the extension following the instructions above. - Nov 05 2016
You should ask the Vlc team about that, maybe reoprt a bug:
http://www.videolan.org/support/#bugs - Oct 15 2015
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 - Aug 22 2015
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. - Jul 27 2015
You're welcome. I hope I'll find something else to fix that problem later. - Jun 24 2015
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. - Jun 24 2015
... beside making a donation to http://opensubtitles.org so they can buy bigger servers. - Apr 09 2015
Yes the server has been down most of the time this last two days, nothing we can do. - Apr 09 2015
You don't have to do that anymore, vlc 2.2 include Vlsub up to date. Just download the latest version from Vlc from here and install it:
http://www.videolan.org/vlc/ - Mar 29 2015
You have to download the last version of the script from here, the one included in Vlc is outdated.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. - Feb 22 2015
You have to download the last version of the script from here, the one included in Vlc is outdated. Then remove "C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\lua\extensions\VLSub.luac" and replace it with the new one, you should be ok. - Dec 03 2014
I tried something else, can you confirm it works this time? Thank you. - Nov 11 2014
The Vlc extension system is instable and sometimes fail when you call a function when the movie change. So the best I can advice is to close the extension when you get your subtitles, and open the extension again to start a new search. - Nov 11 2014
There's is no older version, the link here point to the latest. I just try to fix the bugs when people report them and put the fix into the script right away. I have no agreement with Videolan, they just asked me if they could include the script in Vlc and I said ok. I'm very surprised it works for you with the 0.9.10 version because it didn't work on Linux en Windows at the time. But again I don't have a Mac environment available to debug on this OS, so I can't investigate more on this bug for now.
- Nov 11 2014
I think I fixed it, could you download the script again and confirm it works. - Nov 11 2014
That's fixed, thank you. - Oct 27 2014
Yes it is, you have this option in the configuration panel. - Oct 23 2014
Wow, that's the nicer comment I've ever had here, thanks a lot man :)
I'm not sure to understand what you want to do with the code. Do you want to improve the extension, writing a new one or just make it work?
Anyway my code is almost not commented so it might not be the best place to learn coding. But feel free to explain to me what you want to achieve and ask me anything, I'm here to help. - Oct 21 2014
Is your drive Z: read only? If so no surprise it fail savings the subs.

your suggestions:
1) Ok, I'll try to care care of it this week-end. Someone else ask me this a lot time ago and I never did it.
2) Not possible, see my response here: https://github.com/exebetche/vlsub/issues/79 - Oct 21 2014
It seems like a problem access the directory. What do you have in Config > working directory? You can edit the path here, it should contain english characters only. - Oct 19 2014

I don't have this problem. Are you using the last version of Vlc? - Nov 12 2015
The script has been updated to fix this problem. You can find it here:
https://raw.githubusercontent.com/videolan/vlc/master/share/lua/playlist/youtube.lua

You have to remove the script "youtube.luac", in "%ProgramFiles%\VideoLAN\VLC\lua\playlist\" if you are on Windows and replace it with the new one. - Nov 12 2015
Check the playlist on your browser maybe some videos have been removed or something. - Oct 01 2015
I guess it download the stream and extract the audio on the fly. But it still use your bandwidth to download both stream. - Sep 17 2015
This is if you want to download the file from Youtube on your computer then extract only the music to listen later. If you want to do that you don't need "youtube-dl", you can do it with Vlc only. - Sep 17 2015
Oh, actually there's a way to set an option named "preferred-resolution" that allow you to set the resolution you want without modifying the script.
You just start Vlc with the option, like that:
vlc.exe --preferred-resolution=360 - Sep 17 2015
On Youtube, music and video are on the same data stream, so there is no way to download only the music to spare your bandwidth. I would be possible to get a lower resolution but this script just take care of the playlist part (gettin the items of the playlist), not getting the data stream.
You need to change something in the script named "youtube.lua" which is included in Vlc, but I'm not sure what. - Sep 17 2015
XD cool, thanks - Aug 22 2015
I tried a fix, could you confirm it works now? - Aug 22 2015
Could you give me the url of your playlist please? I've never seen a playlist with that much item in it so I can't do any tests. - Jun 12 2015
You're absolutely right, this doesn't fix anything. I didn't pay attention because the intro of the videos in the playlist I tested was similar.

In fact I see no way to fix this in the script because the network functions are disabled in the vlc/lua playlist module. So you can just read the content of the url you provide, but you can't get the real video url from an other page. That's why you get the same video each time. Sorry to I gave you false hope.

I suggest you fill a bug report to the Vlc team about this. - Jun 02 2015
As I said before, I merged the script youtube.lua and playlist_youtube.lua into one, so it retrieve the real url of the video directly.

You should replace playlist_youtube.lua with the new one (merged_playlist_youtube.lua).

As I said, I just tested it quickly but it works ok for me. You said Vlc doesn't shuffle anymore? What do you mean, it stops playing after the first video? Does it play the video in order?

Also make sure you use Vlc 2.2. - Jun 02 2015
Just a ping, since the quick fix I posted may interest you. - May 31 2015
Just a ping, since the quick fix I posted may interest you. - May 31 2015
Yeah, sure, I put it as a 2nd download (merged_playlist_youtube.lua). I just tested it very quickly though. - May 31 2015
I explain the problem; when you load a playlist this is what append:
1) this extension (playlist_youtube.lua) retrieve the list of videos from the url and set the playlist in vlc
2) when a video is loaded, the url is recognized as a youtube url, and the youtube video extension (youtube.lua) retrieve the actual video url from the video web page url
3) plays video...

I guess what's happening:
When Vlc shuffle, it takes a random url from the list and try to play directly, skeepind the 2) step.
So one solution could be to merge the 2 extensions, so it provide directly the actual video url, basically merge steps 1) and 2) into a single step. But that's probably not a good idea because the youtube's video url are temporary. So
the url could expires by the time you reach the end of the playlist and videos would not play anymore.
The other solution is to report this as a bug to the vlc tea, asking they make shuffle function goes as the same steps as a video played normally.

- May 22 2015
For me it's the opposite, the playlist is retrieved properly but single video won't work so as far as I'm concerned the problem come from the "youtube" script of vlc. (tested with Vlc 2.2 RC) - Dec 17 2014
