You spend most of your weekends and holidays watching movies and TV series at home. Ever encountered a situation when you are searching Google for finding the right match of subtitle and Google is not ready to please you. I share your emotions.

VLC is the most popular and the best video player which has an add-on available which solves your problem in few clicks. Probably you can find subtitles by manually searching as well but this will save you lot of mouse clicks.

So Here’s How To Do It

You can download the plugin from here. After downloading the extension from Github, just drop it in the appropriate folder.

  • Windows: C:/Program Files/VideoLAN/VLC/lua/extensions/

  • OS X: /Applications/

  • Linux: ~/.local/share/vlc/lua/extensions/

Download Subtitles- Its Showtime

Just play the video and click on “View” then “Download Subtitles”. You will see a list of subtitles which this add-on searches fetches from You can take the judgement call and hit download. No, you don’t have to load the subtitle it will be done.
