Issues with XML-RPC API

Mon Apr 06, 2020 2:42 pm

Recently we have noticed a large number of user reports about the subtitle search functionality in our app. Based on that, we have investigated further and found that XML-RPC API returns with 401 unless we use a valid opensubtitles.org account. Is it an intended change? Does XML-RPC API require login now?

Unfortunately, yes. It's the only way service can continue with a lot of people staying at home and accessing subtitles.
