FileBot Doesn't Seem to Acknowledge My VIP OpenSubtitles Account

Post by scottycope »

Hi,

I recently signed up for a VIP opensubtitles account for the 1000 per day subtitles and, more importantly, the lack of the ads in the downloaded subtitles.

If I log in to opensubtitles directly, I am able to download ad-free subtitles. When using the Filebot GUI, I log in and it tells me my limit for the day is 1000. Of those 1000, I only downloaded 15 or so. That is all good. However, when I use the Filebot GUI for subtitles, I download them and open them and there are ads in the .srt files.

It looks, to me, like Filebot is not quite acknowledging my VIP opensubtitles acccount, sort of. I mean, it does capture the 1000 daily limit.

I'm not sure if it helps or not but I run the following command

Code: Select all

filebot - script fn:osdb.stats
and it gives me the below output:

Code: Select all

C:\Users\Scott>filebot -script fn:osdb.stats
limit_check_by = user_id
user_id = XXXXXXX
global_24h_download_limit = 200
client_ip = XX.XX.XX.XX
client_24h_download_count = 15
client_download_quota = 985
client_24h_download_limit = 1000
Done ?(?????)?

Any idea on what Filebot may be doing differently than me using opensubtitles directly? Any other info I can provide on this?

Thanks,
Scott

No idea. It's kinda up to OpenSubtitles. I'm not aware of there being alternative APIs for VIP users.

Best to ask in the OpenSubtitles Forums as to what the expected behavior should be. Perhaps it's intended. Perhaps it's just a bug.
:idea: Please read the FAQ and How to Request Help.
