  1. The uploader is very nice! Just one remark, when you click on “send” nothing happens. If the website is not reachable, it may take some time to respond, thus I suggest that something happen when you click on the button in order to warn the user that the subtitle are indeed being uploaded.

  2. I have tried to upload an SRT file on both the uploader and the website and it just says that the format is not supported!
    (and that the only file formats supported is : SRT, SUB, SMI, SSA)
    BUT it is a SRT file format so why won’t it upload? works fine on my PC in VLC media player
