Subtitles is a very simple app that will find - you guessed it - subtitles for your movies. All you need to do is right click on the movie file, choose a language from the incredibly long selection, and click. Your web browser will open up, hopefully displaying a perfect set of subtitles for you to download.


If Subtitles doesn't find your movie straight away, don't worry. I had the chance to speak to the app's developer, Guilherme Barboza, who explained how it works. Subtitles doesn't search for the movie name (too much scope for error) but instead calculates the checksum. If it doesn't already have that particular checksum stored in its database, it automatically looks for it elsewhere on the internet. If it still can't find it, you search manually and the checksum is saved for future use. With more than 120,000 subtitles being downloaded every day, however, the chances that your movie will be correctly identified is getting better by the minute!

On the subject of subtitles, did you know that if you use a media player such as VLC, all you have to do is save the subtitles in the same folder as the movie and make sure they have the same name? If they do, the player will automatically add them to your movie - it's that easy!

    I am the developer of this application and I hope to be helping moviegoers to find their subtitles easily. This is the first version of the program and many improvements are coming soon. I personaly agree with Niamh Lynch that the list of languages is very large and the ability to configure it is an upgrade urgently needed. Other improvements are comming soon. I undertake to implement in the next version the ability of upload subtitles using the same approach and the perfect match search of subtitles. As Niamh Lynch said, the search result quality increases with the use of the program ... so we need to use this application as much as possible to the automatic search for subtitles becomes a reality. Suggestions and comments of all types are very welcome and i would like to thanks especially Niamh Lynch for publishing this post. Take care everyone, sorry my bad english and have fun!
