    Going through a Marvel and Witcher binge, nothing is downloading with english assistive or english forced. Same for a half dozen anime series as well.

    +1, selected srt files, not a single one downloads - but so glad that AS is back up and running for NF :D

    Hi ! I have the same problem on NF with subtitles : I select them but when the file is downloaded there is no subtitles at all, and no error message.
    Besides that, HAPPY XMAS to all of you :))

    I just finished authoring the Netflix TV show, Lost in Space: Season 3 to Blu-ray. The streams downloaded via AnyStream without issue with the exception of the subtitles of course. The resulting video and audio was clean from start to finish. When authoring to Blu-ray I did include subtitles though. I found a set of English subtitles in SRT format (text based) which I converted to SUP format (image based), the format required for Blu-ray. I found very little in the way of errors when working them over in SubtitleEdit. They were quite clean with no adjustment in timing needed. In any event, just thought I'd share the love. I uploaded both sets of subtitles (SRT and SUP) to my secure website in the event anyone was interested. They can be downloaded here. Enjoy!

    Can confirm that there were no subtitles from NF downloaded - whilst they were checked (but video is ok).
    I made it done with the Greasemonkey script mentioned above.

    Kudos to all the programmers!
    Happy Holiday!

    Thanks a lot. This is a great temporary solution.

    Yes, that script will be a time and token saver in future as well so not just this time, very useful indeed not having to re-download stuff with AS just because of a missing sub, like when you grab stuff over VPN and movie becomes available later in your region you can just use that script downloading that subtitle

    Interesting suggestion. Just tried that. Does not work.

    I wrote this already in the German forum, but once again: Since the subtitles downloaded with the Greasy Fork Script are in .vtt or .dfxp format, here are some workarounds how to convert them into .srt:

    1) Online via (In case you want to convert several subtitles, press "F5" after each conversion - otherwise you will get a CAPTCHA).

    2) You can install SubtitleEdit and do the conversion in a Command Prompt (here for Windows):
    "%ProgramFiles%\Subtitle Edit\SubtitleEdit.exe" /convert *.vtt subrip
    "%ProgramFiles%\Subtitle Edit\SubtitleEdit.exe" /convert *.dfxp subrip
    Alternatively you can use the enclosed batch file for automatic conversion, just put the .bat file into the directory containing your downloaded subtitles.[/QUOTE]

    So I may be missing something, but I've used SubtitleEdit to batch convert a bunch of subtitles before.

    I used the GreaseMonkey script and got the VTT then I went to convert it over to SRT, but for some reason it takes the punctuation on each of the lines and moves it from the end to the start of the line.

    So something like
    Let's test this!
    now becomes
    !Let's test this
    Is there a particular reason it's doing that? I tried looking in the options, but nothing. First time I've had it happen before. I mainly used it on idx/sub files when I was converting my blurays over.

    Interesting enough running the batch script like you mentioned doesn't do it, but gives all the extra tags. If I run it through SubtitleEdit's batch convert it does.

    Edit: After noticing your script worked I went back through SubtitleEdit's options. Apparently it was the "Fix RTL" option that did it. Going to leave this post here in case someone experiences the same problem or I have it again in the future, haha.

    I replied to this already, but I don't see a reply here. In any case, I tried that, and it didn't work. I'm not going to try that Chrome add-on thing also posted in this forum. I will wait for a fix.

    When you download the title with external srt files it works.

    Can confirm. Subtitle files seem to work and are being downloaded properly now, at least for Itaewon Class, which was not working before. (Now to see if the video will not be corrupted after 2 minutes... (Edit: It was still corrupted))

    Not sure if this is what fixed the subtitle issue, but I am using ver

    Edit: Subtitles also working for King's Affection.

    Using 1282, should make no difference, as it only added more information in log files. for the developers to fix the issues

    Workaround for missing subtitles on NF in single films:

    I am downloading the movie with; unfortunately without subtitles.
    Then I downloaded the same movie with an earlier version ( This version complains that it is out of date, but I ignore that.
    After I started the DL, it logically aborts with an error message.
    But: I still have the subtitle files on my PC.
    Et voilà!

    This workaround is certainly only practicable for individual films, not for series. The expenditure of time would be too great and twice as many tokens are used.

    I saw on another thread that that version is mainly for Japanese users?

    Perhaps, just saying it wasn't the latest
