OpenSubtitles

Users favourite subtitles available

Time to time I check trac for new tickets, and I found interesting one (actually, it was send by user and I put it in trac), where was suggestion about creating favourite subtitles for user. This means, you can mark any subtitles and add it to you favourites.

Improved subtitles reporting system

We needed better subtitles reporting system, so user should change info like release name, uploader comment or even uploader. I coded it and this is all now possible with new reporting system, so you can try that.

OpenSubtitles.com testing

Don’t be scared, when you will see in URL OpenSubtitles.com – we are testing something, don’t update bookmarks, OpenSubtitles.org is still correct URL.

Servers upgrade summary

Some of you might have already noticed that opensubtitles.org didn’t work for past couple of days correctly. This was due to the move to a new hardware and new operating system version of our servers at collocation.

New servers are ONLINE

We are proud to inform you that we have upgraded all 4 servers to a new hardware, which means site should work better and faster. If you encounter any problems, just let us know.

Downloading subtitles using MPC

MPC means Media Player Classic (download), it is a little old – latest release is dated to 2006-03-20, but that means nothing. It is still one of the best software players floating around. I will show you in this guide how to download perfectly matched subtitles without opening any website using OpenSubtitles.org ISDb protocol.

Use Trac for bug reporting

We decided use unique bug reporting system called Trac – an enhanced wiki and issue tracking system for software development projects.

XMLRPC API has 2 new methods

After some discussion with Majky (author of Oscar), we agreed on adding 2 new methods to XMLRPC API. One Method is SearchMoviesOnIMDB($token, $query), which returns array of movies from imdb.com. Next method is GetIMDBMovieDetails($token, $imdbid), which returns some nice information for given imdbid.

Informative mails about comments

Today I had idea – what about new feature – when someone post comment to some subtitles, uploader of those subtitles should receive informative mail about that.

Movie trailers about movies

As you can see, on subtitle detail page is now possible click to “Show trailer” link, but it unfortunately doesn’t work in Opera browser for some unknown reason. Anyway, it is searching for movie trailers, so I hope you will have fun with this small feature.

Request section is again usable

After some months of unusability of request section I decided to create it again almost from scratch. Now it should be better, faster and it has more features.

Implementing better caching technique

After playing a little bit with memcache I had to implement better caching technique. Site was down for some hours, I look what happened…it was an error, which I didn’t see any time before…
