Subtitle download

Postby Flattop » Sun Apr 14, 2013 5:41 pm

Can someone help figure out how to download subtitles for Mirai Nikki? I click on the subtitle to download the .srt but it will not download the file. It just opens the .srt file to view the text only. It will not download the file. I tried other subtitles and it does the same thing. I have download subtitles from this sight before with no problems. Does anyone have an idea to correct this? :unsure:

click on the link, it gives option to open or download. now choose.

or you can copy all the contetnts of the opened file to a notepad and save the notepas with an .srt extn of same name.

I can right click and save as the subtitle file and I made the .srt or .ass file name the same as the video file but, the subtitles do not come up. I have other videos with .srt subtitles and they work. Not sure what is going on with this download. Is there a different setting I have to make?

You asked about the srt of episode 1 from http://www.d-addicts.com/forum/viewtopic_109321.htm

Save ep01.srt with right mousebutton (save as) and open it with a text editor. now go to the line 363 and edit the typo of the start time

change from

Code: Select all

95
00:07:19:00 --> 00:07:21,880

to

Code: Select all

95
00:07:19,880 --> 00:07:21,880


Some editor can be confussed by the mix of newline coding in this file

I have the exact same issue with these files-

http://www.d-addicts.com/forum/viewtopic_132371.htm

For both the 720p files, all I see are the dialogue texts. Download for the ep1 396p subs worked - too bad there is none for ep2.

Still hoping for a solution.

@piboi: checked the subs from http://www.d-addicts.com/forum/viewtopic_132371.htm

for episode 1 both files are identical. only different names, funny :)

did you see the the dialogue text in the browser?
Then you should download with right click 'save as' and give the subs a proper name.

K361,
It looks like when I right click and save as the file isn't saving everything. When I open up the .srt file it is only showing subtitle up to about 3:21 minutes of subs. I'm really not sure what is going on. I use to just download the .srt file with know problem. I haven't downloaded from the D-Addicts site in a while. I never had to right click and save as. I was running Windows XP before and now I'm running Windows 7. I'm using Windows Media Player to view the MP4.

This is how I have the files named:

Mirai_Nikki_01.srt

Mirai_Nikki_01.MP4

it is an encodeing problem. the .srt file is encoded UTF-8, some viedo players barf on that. open the .srt file in notepad, then click on save as, change the encoding to ANSI, then click save. should work now.

@ap: It is UTF-8 because of the ! in line 848

UTF-8 is used by many subtitle and W7 system. Is this really a problem

@Flattop:
Add BOM to file, try again

check UTF-8 support by windows 7
http://superuser.com/questions/221593/w ... nd-unicode

Flattop, please give feedback. If possible install a other player (vlc, gom)

Flattop, is the downloaded file (that only goes to minute 3:21) smaller than 20kb?

I got the subs to work. This is what I did. The subs would not work with Media Player so, I downloaded VLC as you suggested. The subtitles work with VLC player. I still have some older files that the subs work with Media player. I guess it is hit or miss on some of the files. Will continue to use VLC player. Oh Yea! I downloaded your sub-UTF8 with BOM.srt. Thanks for all your help.

Flattop.

I know iconv under linux, but there should be some tools for windows 7.
Maybe some editor can convert to proper utf-8 or ASCII.

did the ASCII or with_bom version work for media player?
can you please give feedbeack for future reference.

Neither version worked with media player. They do work with VLC so, I will view it through VLC. It is funny though. I have some drama files with English subs that I have had for a while and they work using media player. Appreciate the help!
