Open Subtitles FlixTools

Okay, this time it’s about our own software for Mac OS X – the Open Subtitles FlixTools. FlixTools provides an easy way to download the subtitles for the movies that you want to watch, in just few seconds. You can download the software here.

The app facilitates Multi Download and Multi Upload, whereby you can download/upload the subtitles for the movies at the same time instead of doing it one by one. Multi Upload is exactly what you was looking for – select folder, select upload, confirm all data, and subtitles are uploaded – it is so far the first software which support this feature, it is great for uploading TV Series subtitles.

You can just drag and drop the video files, or search for subtitles using movie names or IMDB IDs.

You can even set FlixTools to watch a particular folder, and if any new movie file is added to it, Open Subtitles FlixTools will automatically download the subtitles for that particular movie.

It helps you to adjust the timing of subtitles according to the videos using the Subtitle Synchronization.

FlixTools can hardcodes/burns subtitles on to movie files. You can also convert the video files from common video formats to MP4 or MKV files. The subtitle files can be converted from ASS/SSA to SRT format.

It also gives you free Open Subtitles VIP membership which in turn gives you a lot of additional features.

Open Subtitles FlixTools‘ two versions:

  • Open Subtitles FlixTools Lite
  • Open Subtitles FlixTools Pro

The Lite version is totally free and gives you the Multi Download/Upload, Automatic Subtitle Download, and Powerful Subtitle Search by Movie Hash functions.

The PRO version gives access to special support forums and Beta releases. It covers all the features mentioned above.

Following are some of the screenshots of the software.

  1. Love this app! Although it won’t let me save the subtitles. Anyone succeeded?
    Tried the app on OSX

  2. This app is a joke, I tried about 100 different popular movies and could not find a single “english” subtitle and if I tried to upload, it would say the subtitle is already on the database. Useless!

  3. can you send us more info ? Is your movies downloaded from internet (how?, what is source?), or did you convert them yourself ? App works great, but there might be some misunderstanding.

  4. Downloaded the app, but it won’t do anything. When I select a movie it says ‘Queued, waiting to be processed’. But it never starts. Maybe I’m not doing it right?

  5. It stopped working for some reason, suddenly I can’t find any subtitles anymore, while the previous day it worked like a charm.

  6. Nonsense. It finds everything for me every time and fast. It is by far the best subtitle tool for the mac.
    I don’t even know what you *could* do wrong because it is so easy to use.

  7. Just bought the basic versie.
    Flixtools won’t download the subtitles it finds to my NAS.
    Any help???

  8. after synchronized how to save subtitled movie ? Unable to save, and Play Video button is also grey, can’t do anything.

  9. Well I downloaded the free version some months ago and it seemed to work fine only limited only a few subtitles a day. Decided to buy the lifetime version. It took a bit of ‘learning’ to see what it is capable of.
    Now I can download the subtitles automaticly; in Spanish and dutch and then even more important synchronisch them aswell.
    I am converting lots of videos to Itunes/mac format and then sometimes you loose the titles etc.
    Great program for me and can it advise to anyone who in the need of finding the right subtitle in an quick and easy manner.
