Description

At one point Movian remembered the subtitles selected and downloaded from opensubtitles. So if you stopped the video, when you played it again the same subtitle was auto selected and displayed. Not anymore. Yo have to do it manually every single time.

Why don't you bring that feature back and also create a cache for those subtitles? If you are caching a lot of metadata like images It would not hurt to cache subtitle files too, so even if you don't have a internet connection at the time you still have your selected subtitles available.

Subtitle are text files that compresses very good, you can archive them that way of you want to.

Thanks.

Yeah, this was a result of that opensubtitles now generate new URLs (based on your session-id) and Movian keys the subtitle on URL. This needs to be worked around. I just haven't gotten around to it yet, but i've been thinking about it.

Version 2.3 of opensubtitles plugin will do some magic on the URLs so they can be remembered.
