Is a free, centralized subtitle database intended to be used only by opensource and non-commercial softwares.
How it works
We use a collaborative model, where users upload us subtitles that can be downloaded by other users. Using an algorithm we call SubRank, our database automatically chooses the best subtitle among all available for a video file making the download process easier. We handle all the boring stuff so you can have more time to enjoy your videos.
You cannot search or list subtitle files that are stored here. You can only access them if you know the hash of the video file that you want the subtitle for.
We have a simple API that provide an easy way to download and upload a subtitle.
