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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Today I’d like to write about added signature in subtitle files. It is common, that other subtitle sites do this and now we do this too.
After some thoughts I’ve got idea what should be really cool. Cool should be, if some DirectShow filter, codec or whatever should support downloading and uploading subtitles from our server – just like SubDownloader or OscarÂ do.
I had to disable discussion for subtitles, it takes too long to get comments, it is caused by “wrong” tables.
After some months of unusability of request section I decided to create it again almost from scratch. Now it should be better, fasterÂ andÂ itÂ has more features.
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…
I did not update donations list at main page – I will update it soon, but not of them will be visible, so here it is complete list of donors. Thank you for any donate, we appreciate that!
User Pko on forum asked me, if it is possible to create new statistics – how much subtitles downloads has user for last 6 months and for last 30 days. So now we can see, which users are really helpful to community.
We switched to new design at forum – we hope you like it. Our aim is to have basically same design on main site, forum and on blog.
We ordered and setuped next web server for OpenSubtitles.org. One webserver was not so powerfull as first one, so when you get data from this one, site was slow.
I wanted to code request area from scratch. You should ask why – I will tell you – it is simple. Request area have some really weird SQL code (some sub-querries) and it locks database, so whole sites works slower (or even did not work). So I have to disable request area of time being.
