what causes/caused the problem?
-Opensubtitles.org updated their servers ,that uncovered latent bugs in the very dumb HTTP support of the VLSub extension.
NB: Advised to skip to/and use the last solution.
I found out by accident that if you wait about +/- 1 minute, after the "Extension VLsub 0.9.13 does not respond" message appears and you don't click to close vlsub, it will work and results of the search will appear (both by hash or name).
So technically it's still working but the long wait and error message are annoying.
To work around the problem (you might need administrator privileges):
- Go to the VLC installation directory.
- Look for the file named lua/extensions/VLSub.luac.
- Open that file in a binary or hexadecimal editor. (DO NOT USE a text editor.)
- Look for the character sequence "HTTP/1.1" (without quotes).
- Replace the last one by a zero: "HTTP/1.0".
- Repeat the procedure; there should be a second occurence in the file.
- Save the file.
- (Re)start VLC
1.Download the latest vlsub extension from https://goo.gl/UFtLx2 or https://goo.gl/6NHGWq
2.EXtract na copy vlsub.lua then ka-paste kwene C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\lua\extensions
(kama ni ngumu kuipata path just right click vlc kwene desktop na chagua open file location)
3.restart vlc na search for subtitles
4.ukipenda futa lile file la mwanzo kwene extensions
