[REQUEST] Sublight Subtitles Plugin, anyone interested in developing this? - macofaco - 2009-01-24 22:58
I am developer of Sublight, windows client application for auto subtitle search and download (http://www.subtitles-on.net/GetSublight.aspx).
I also developed Sublight server and designed its database which can be accessed by web service (http://www.subtitles-on.net/SubtitlesAPI2.asmx).
If you are interested you can use this service from XBMC. I also published sample C++ project which demonstrates how to call our web service in C++ (http://www.subtitles-on.net/GetSublight.aspx#cpp). Of course any other programming language can be used.
This was quick intro. If you are interested or have any questions please ask. You can also suggest new features.

I was literally just looking at subtitle sites to scrape, so this is awesome. Thanks for the permission and info, I'll hopefully get started on it early next week and will let you know if I have any questions.

BTW, our API allows search by title and hash (subtitles which were linked with movies by Sublight users - I call this "linked subtitles"). Linked subtitles should be of course synchronized with movie (unless some user linked subtitle with wrong movie - users then report such "subtitle links" and administrator deletes it using Sublight administrative module).

Wouldn't this be a issue as in it would only be good for dvdr rips or up to date scene releases.Also,aren't some subtitles released to only work for that individual release?Just seems like to me this would be one of them things hard to keep up to date and a pain in the arse to match with the correct subtitle file.If I am wrong please correct me.

If you do your own DVD rip then search by hash would return no results. In this case search by filename should be used.
If DVD rip is well known then search by hash can return 100% synhronized subtitles (if link exists). Of course search by filename can also be used but it does not guarantee you that subtitle is synchronized with movie (you must download and check it).
All movies which were created from same source will be synchronized with same subtitle (regardless of codec being used).

Hm, this would be perfect for direct integration into xbmc to be honest. When scanning files compute the hash and put that into the library and then let the user have a "search for subtitle" button in the info screen that then looks for subs. Would be really cool.

Creating a plugin will be fairly easy I guess. I wish I had the time to write (and maintain it). Great job! I'll be using your app regularly. I was using Subdownloader2, but since teh windows version isn't free anymore....

I will give detailed technical support when someone starts writing this plugin (how to calculate hash, API help, ...).
