Attention Subtitles Enthusiasts! Big Changes Ahead for OpenSubtitles.org API

As the familiar landscape of online movie subtitle searches undergoes a transformation, OpenSubtitles.org has announced the end of its original API service in 2022. A significant shift in its system has been set in motion, marking the end of an era after 17 years of reliable service. This transition aims to pave the way for a more advanced and streamlined experience with the introduction of the new REST API on OpenSubtitles.com.

End of an Era: What's Changing and When?

The original API service from OpenSubtitles.org is slated to cease functioning by the end of 2023, as announced earlier. This decision, initially disclosed in a forum post, will primarily affect non-VIP users, while VIP members will continue to enjoy access to the API. While this may seem daunting, fear not! The end of the old API service heralds a new chapter for subtitles enthusiasts with the revamped and optimized OpenSubtitles.com REST API.

Embrace the Change: Introducing the 20% Black Friday Treat!

To celebrate this transition and express gratitude to its loyal user base, OpenSubtitles.org is offering an exclusive 20% discount on a one-year subscription to VIP membership. This offer is valid until November 24th, 2023. Subscribers will not only gain VIP status on www.opensubtitles.org but also have access to VIP benefits on www.opensubtitles.com.

Understanding the VIP Advantage

Subtitles downloaded by VIP members are free from any embedded ads, offering a cleaner viewing experience.

I signed up for the VIP Subscription with the 20% off deal for Black Friday just a few minutes ago, but I was charged the full amount.

I clicked using one of the links in the email I received. It brought me to:https://www.opensubtitles.org/en/support#vip

From there I clicked on the l8nk where it reads "Get instant VIP: Easy and secure checkout by FastSpring (15 USD) + TAX - pay by credit card etc..." which took me to:
https://www.opensubtitles.org/addons/fl ... duct=osvip

I did choose the option to donate an additional $5 - not sure if that makes a difference. I paid $29.89 altogether.

Hi

ok, I made refund 8 CAD + TAX. I hope it is fine now, not sure why discount 20% was not applied, normally it is.

As the owner and developer of an Android app that still uses the old API, does it mean that if I personally subscribe to VIP, my app will be able to still use the old API for all the users (logged in or not), or that the API would only work for a user logged in my app and that happens to also be a VIP user ?

Hi

to share VIP account with other users is not really what we want to do. For developers we have subscriptions prices
https://opensubtitles.stoplight.io/docs ... ion-prices
and it is correct way how to handle this situation
