Minor Changes

After a long time, i find time to post in this blog.

We have done some minor graphical changes to the design of the website that you will find it easier to navigate.

Also, we have improved our server capabilities sou you can browse into the website smoothly.

Just to now,  we have removed since long time ago the comment capability.

Comments and Others updates

We have add a new feature in our site. Now you can post comments for a subtitle. You comments will be reviewed before posted.

We added also a new feature called subtitles preview where you can have a look at the first 8 lines of a subtitle. This think is good to check if the subtitles has a different language than the one is supposed to have.

By the way, we have done small fixes in the appearance of few things in the site.

Increase subtitles size

For those who  use K-Lite codec pack (Media Player Classic and DirectVobSub).
If your subtitles look small then follow this steps:

Double click on DirectVobSub icon

DirectVobSub taskbar icon

The following window will appear. On the field “Text Settings” click the button “Arial”

DirectVobSub Properties

Again, click the button “Arial” on the field “Font”

Style editor

Now, you can change the color, size, font of the subtitles

Font

Thats all.

Bad subtitles reporting – My Comments

Before two month i place a “Report Bad Subtitle” link where you can make a report about bad or corrupted subtitles. Since then i have received more than 300 mails about bad subtitles. I have reviewed all of your mails and i give answers to few of you. The most frequently problem is the synchronization of the subtitle with the movie. To fix this problem read my older post here: Synchronize Subtitles.

Other problems you have is that the subtitles appears in a non understandable format. To fix this problem you have to read my post here: None understandable Subtitles

Some of you have problem with their player. I recommend to download K-Lite Codec Pack (http://filehippo.com/download_klite_codec_pack/). I think it’s the best free player and collection of codecs in the market and it includes DirectVobSub, a program to handle your subtitles.

I have to mention that sometimes you are unable to download a subtitles, or the download link seems to be broken. This is due to the overloading of our server and it can’t serve you and give you the subtitles you request. In this case wait for few minutes and try again. Don’t send bad reporting email.

Bad subtitles reporting

Under the download link i have placed a link which gives you the ability to report bad subtitles (wrong subtitles, unfinished subtitles, wrong language subtitles…).

We read all of your e-mails and we try to resolve all the problems the soonest possible.
