Special Feature Request - Searching Inside Subtitles

Wed Jan 11, 2023 10:05 pm

Hi,

I have a special request. Can you add a feature where you can do a keyword search inside the subtitles? For example, you want to search all english subtitles on the website for the word "philosophy" and it returns all results with all subtitles that contain that word.

I think this will take things to the next level. There's a lot of interesting content in subtitles and being able to search through them would be very useful for things like finding movies you may like that you didn't know about that contain certain keywords and many other uses. It will be like google books but for movies! Like the ability to search for text inside millions of books, but for movies (subtitles)! This is amazing and you can easily do it.

Please get back to me on this one, I'm really interested in getting this implemented!

Hi

it is definitely possible, but there are another few stuff which have priority. There are some other websites which are doing exactly this :)

that would be perfect for my purposes. i am using hard of hearing subtitles to single out episodes with car honks (get enough of the #*$% in real life). all i can do is download them all and use a program that searches a directory of files for a word (notepad++). it's fine the way it is (specially with 1000 a day limit with vip) but that would be cool
