Subtitles scraper - mojorero - 2017-04-13 23:56

Hello everyone,

I am trying to make a subtitle scraper for TV media using the Kodi code base. Does Kodi fetch the subtitles from the video streaming or should the subtitles always be provided from extern sources like opensubtitles?

Kind regards

Can be both, if there is an embedded sub, in medua like a mkv channel, kodi demuxes and uses that subtitle stream, alternativelt, yiy can use an external sub too

Hi boogiepop. First of all, thank you for your response. I can't find the place in the Kodi Source code where the demux happens, does it happen at the corresponding plugins?
