Howto enable automatic subtitle download

Hi, and sorry for that. I am not able to get the automatic subtitle download to work with the informations i found in the web. What i have done is:

Settings - Server - Language:

  • Subtitle always on
  • preferred language (English)

Settings - Server - agents - movies - freebase:

  • Local Media Assets (first place)
  • opensubtitles.org (second place)

I created an account on opensubtitles and added the username and password in the settings window. I also added english to the first place to download.

Now i updated the media library but there is still no subtitle. Is there something i missed to get the automatic download running?

Thank you very much for your help.

    I followed the same steps (as listed in Plex Support) and still can't get subs to work.

    I got it working by downloading an external plug-in and installing it for subtitles. It's called Subliminal. You can find it at: https://github.com/bramwalet/Subliminal.bundle

    Hardware running Plex: CPU: Intel Core i7, RAM: 16Gb, HDD(s): 4,5Tb & VMWare ESXi with Intel Xeon 5130 @ 2.00GHz (dual-core CPUs) and 8Gb of RAM (4Gb allocated to Plex VM, plus all CPU cores)
    Clients: iPad, OnePlus 3, Laptop, Desktop and Samsung Smart TV.

    its not working for me either. worked before ike a sharm. after updating flex it stopped working.

    therefore there has been some changes made by the developers.

    please fix that, so we can fetch automatically subtitles with a proper open subtitles.org account

    Is this thread dead? I am having the same issue. Please make subtitles work!

    Same here. Furthermore: I cannot get local subtitle files (.srt) nor subtitles from OpenSubtitles to work. Hence, no subtitles what so ever.
