shooter.cn subtitles uploaded already to os.org?

Sat Apr 07, 2018 9:34 am

Hi,

I'm just wondering if anyone here knows whether the shooter.cn subtitles database has been uploaded here already?

Shooter.cn was the premier subtitles source for human translated Chinese subtitles for western movies. Students often did this as a form of practice for studying English. This was until it was shut down mysteriously, most think due to some level of coercion from the Chinese government.

It appears as though many are already here but its hard to confirm on this scale - the database is HUGE. Superficially, it appears the user 'ZimukuChina' (https://www.opensubtitles.org/en/profile/iduser-1955708) has uploaded a lot of the subtitles I have.

Anyway, if not - I've got 700,000+ subtitles to contribute, totaling around 283 Gb.

hi,

well, sure you can send me the archive and I will try to import it. I think it could be useful.

Would you like help? I'm an automation specialist by day, so certainly used to performing bulk operations and imports etc. I'm just not entirely sure what the best inputs are - in terms of data and format.

So far, I've looked at the OS API Wrapper (https://github.com/vankasteelj/opensubtitles-api) and considered purchasing enough credit on http://www.omdbapi.com/ in order to get IMDB id's for all movies with recognizable folder names (I'd probably just save the entire JSON response to the subtitles folder as a start). I made a few programmatic calls from a Node.js script but unfortunately I need an API key and the process seemed quite manual to get one - so that's why I decided to post here to decide if my efforts would be in vein or not.

Apart from a whole bunch of nefarious file types (201 file extensions!), the only major problem is some folders contain files with names like this:
output.idx
output.ifo
output.sub

None of these files contain any information on the movie title, and no index file came with the collection. I'm trying my best to hunt down an index. You may be able to determine the name of the movie by calculating a hash, but that would mean you've already got the subtitles anyway?

Shooter lives on now at this address: http://assrt.net/ - which may be of some help, but they seem to have changed all their ID numbering :-/

Okay, can any subtitles that are uploaded at least be credited to my username?
