Video plugin to download subtitles from Sublight website.
Big hand to macofaco (Sublight developer) for offering the service and his help in developing the plugin.

Great! I was unable to find the plugin with the SVN Repo Installer. But it installed fine with the XBMC Zone Installer.
I'm using the latest XBMC svn version for the XBOX. When I select a video file the file starts to play in the background (I can't see the video, but I can hear it) and I have to restart the XBOX to regain control over XBMC.

The SVN Repo Installer link in my first post here points to a wiki page that tells you how to access my source repository with the SVN Repo Installer - my plugins are not in the official SVN repository, well, for various reasons...
That sounds pretty bad - I've only tested it on Windows, it needs to play the video file to get the length in seconds (needed to calculate the unique video hash code to be able to find the correct subtitles), but it should stop it immediately - I will try it as well tonight and see if I can fix it, I believe Xbox uses mplayer as a default video player, while Windows uses DVDPlayer.
Thanks for letting me know.

Thanks man, sorry to hear that guys, I'll have a look at that as well tonight.

If you are having troubles getting movie length I can write helper web service method which receives hash without movie length and returns you valid full hash.
This would not be big problem...

Wow man, if you could do that would be great, as I won't have to stop the currently playing video. Users could actually leave the video playing, run the plugin (maybe I will even enhance it to look for subtitles for currently playing video later on) and that would allow them to download a subtitle, go back to full screen, load the subtitle, and if it doens't work and then come back and download the next one.
Let me know of the implementation details, and thanks a lot for your help!

No problem, this is easy. It will be implemented this weekend and I will send you more details when it's done.
