Subdownloader [1.2.9]

Postby oss » Sun Nov 05, 2006 5:03 pm

SubDownloader official webpage SubDownloader.net

Hello all,

Visit official SubDownloader web page(including sources, how to install it on linux, guides and other nice stuff)

we are really proud to present you SubDownloader - first opensource program coded in python, which is working with opensubtitles.org site for downloading/uploading subtitles. We think, this should be first step, how to change system of downloading and uploading subtitles at all. This program works with open to public XMLRPC service of this website using special hash and should work on most operating systems - now tested on windows/linux. Opensubtitles,org is open server, it has own API, so it is possible to code program/library, which use this site.

We release this program for you - for users. We hope, you will like it and will upload subtitles using this program - so others could download these subtitles through this program. If uploaded subtitles already exists on server - upload it anyway - we collect information about movie to which it belongs (hash, fps, filesize, time), so you will help anyway. Main features are:

- no spyware, no adware, source code is available at project homepage
- it uses fast hashing algorithm (27 GB movies/7 seconds)
- search and download subtitles for 1 movie
- search and download subtitles for movies directory
- upload subtitles to site (possible as registered/unregistered)
- autodetecting imdb, if in directory exists nfo file
- for release name is used name of directory
- using OSDB and ISDB protocol
- autodetecting user language / set prefered languages
- PAD file available
- many more...:)

We bought two new dedicated servers, also further developing of SubDownloader needs your support.

We are also looking for programmers, who can help with developing Subdownloader and programming other tools. If you have any idea how to help (code some scripts, directshow filters and so on), just contact us for details. If you decide code new program using opensubtitles.org site, please contact us first too.

FAQ:
SubDownloader did not found subtitles for my movie XXX! It means you don't have subtitles for XXX on your website?
No, it means, subtitles for movie XXX was not uploaded with SubDownloader and the _could_ be on website, but you have to search them by hand. If you want help to community - search correct subtitles on website and upload it with SubDownloader, so you and others can find those subtitles with SubDownloader next time

How program works? When I change filename for movie, it will find correct subtitles?
1. Subdownloader applies to the VideoFile a Moviehash function getting an unique 64 bit string.
2. It requests this string to a online databases which contains the subtitles. See the XmlRpc Api.
3. It downloads the choosen subtitle(s) from the server.
So if you will rename your movie, it will find correct subtitles too, because contents of file is not changed.

I need python or something else when installing this program on Windows when I download windows install exe?
No, you don't. Just download exe, install and that's all. As you can see, installation and exe itself is quite big, so python interpreter and other libraries are already included there.

When I upload subtitles using SubDownloader, program says those subtitles are already in database. Is there some profit from this action anyway?
Short answer: YES!
Long Answer: when program says, those subtitles are already on server, that's because _same_ subtitles are already uploaded with or without movie hash (subtitles was uploaded by web interface). So now you "connect" movie hash with subtitle - and now others can download those subtitles with SubDownloader. Ok, but thats not all! We programmed special script, which will generate movie hashes for all subtitles for same movie with similar subtitle timestampes (we approximate them to each other subtitle with same IMDBID). So it is possible, when you upload some subtitle using SubDownloader you will generate 10 hashes or so! All this is stored in db and it will be available (stats...) on web later! So upload all subtitles with SubDownloader, it is worth of it.

SubDownloader doesn't start under my Windows 2000! What to do?
This is WXPython bug, subdownloader uses it. Here is solution - download gdiplus.dll and put it into same directory as SubDownloader.exe (or system directory - windows have to see it) and it should work.
Download it from here More about that bug is written here

How SubDownloader detects language of subtitles fro upload ?
SubDownloader use opensource, free library called TextCat - its python module. There is nice list of language detection tools

SubDownloader after start crashes!
If you see in the log something like "zipextimporter.pyo" or "ImportError: MemoryLoadLibrary failed loading wx\_core_.pyd" try download and put in same folder as is subdownloader this dll: http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-f ... ml?msvcp71 - more about this problem is written in here

Unhandled exception in thread started by <bound method MainFrame.searchthread of <SubDownloaderFrame.MainFrame; proxy of C++ wxFrame instance at _08f0fa01_p_wxFrame>>
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "SubDownloaderFrame.pyo", line 1018, in searchthread
File "wx\_core.pyo", line 13485, in __getattr__


... but yes, I didn't install the patch. It redirected me to some page with updated version of this program but download speed was so slow I gave it up.

The second reason why I uninstall this program was I have all filenames renamed to avoid spaces ... for example: As_Far_As_My_Feet_Will_Carry_Me.DVDrip.xvid.ihoe.cd1.avi and I think (I can be wrong) it is not working also with Lulu.on.the.Bridge.1998.DVDRip.XviD.CZdub-DiVXCZ.avi ... I didn't try it for a long time, the connection and response was very very slooooow.

I'd prefer web interface, sorry.

thanks for feedback to both.

Ivanhoe: you are using some proxy server for connecting ? For downloading - in 1.2.1 is not so much new, I think this error will occur anyway - it is hosted at sourceforge, so sometimes it is slow.

Also it doesnt matter how you files is named, it works according content (hash). We know server is slow (especially around 20:00 GMT), so we already ordered two powerful dedicated servers.

stay tuned :)

Well, I have some kind of "transparent" proxy - so I don't need to explicitly use it, it works automatically. I have not public access but other programs doesn't have any of connection problems.

I confess being impatient. :]

I can try it again - but I don't see the reason of using installed program instead of some well done web interface. If the site speeds up ... :)

... don't worry, I keep tuned. Your site is really the best.

:]

I very liked the very good ideia it program… exactly goes to very speed the search of the legends… but sugestoes would like to make some… voces could improve the search for legends, accepting titulo original as word of search, therefore when adding torrent in the site the face can place any name thus I can low film the same but for the name this different I hardly will find the legend, I tambem I could make one integracao with other vestibules of legends similar to construct an enormous net thus I would be impossivel to finish with it… voces estao of parabens the program I was very good… sorry for bad english, i don't speak very well

Yes, you should improve in your english. My is not good too, either :) Ok, as I tried to understand you, you want search subtitles by name in this program. This is possible, but I will not support that, using hash (in future filesize/imdbid) is enough - it is faster, so server can handle more requests.
Also when you are downloading something and you already want subtitles, just wait, when it will be downloaded.

For existing subtitles you always can use web, ofcourse.

hello sno,

thanks for feedback. I see your point, there are some peoples, who download movie after, they are sure, if subtitles exists, I've been one of them. Objective of this program is other - it finds existing and correct subtitles for existing avi file you have.

There are many problems, when for example exists many subtitles for one movie. Lets say, movie is released by many groups/nukes/versions (see latest pirates of carribean) and there exists tons of subtitles. Idea of this program is point: for this movie you should download only these subtitles.

Also, I know those kind of programs you show me, maybe there exists 3 or more like this you show. We have XML search output, for example you search matrix, so look at http://www.opensubtitles.org/en/search/ ... /simplexml

and you get idea. It is not a problem to add our website to those kind of searchers, but they didnt contact me, and me either not :)

Hi all,

First off, thank you for the program - it should save time, not having to download several versions and see which one fits best (there's always subtutle workshop, i know, but this way's quicker).

Second, i guess it will make the uploading of subs nicer, at least for me.

Keep up the good work, subs + open source = excelent!
