Release Video Explorer 3.0.0.61: Critical Bug Fixes
#7
@RXP91:

I've done a bit of research on the subtitle thing and there is a reason why there aren't any apps that handle that properly.

The API's available for Subtitle lookup and retrieval are thin on the ground to begin with, but the bigger issue is that it is VERY difficult to find and download the correct subtitles for the specific version / rip of the movie that someone has on their hard drive.

Some movies have over 100 different subtitle variants available for the same movie and each one is specific to a particular rip released by a particular group / crew.

Rips have different run times, so subtitles for one will not necessarily work with another in terms of timing.

Add to the that the fact that the APIs seem to only recognise IMDB IDs for explicit matching and don't recognise TheMovieDB IDs as far as I can tell, and you've got yourself a nice complicated mess of a situation that is incredibly difficult to automate with any reasonable degree of reliability.
