Opensubtitles fail to download
#1
Suddenly I can't download opensubtitles.org in Kodi on my Blaze TV box, but I don't have a problem with to download them on my other box which Matricom G Box . Both are set up the same way...just difference is that Blaze box run Android 4.4 and Matricom G box Android 5.1
Getting message : Opensubtitles.org Error Check the log for more information ( honestly don't know how ) and later change to Failed to download subtitles .
Any idea what could change ? I tried to uninstall and install them again, but no luck......

I think the problem is that OpenSubtitles is using captcha to stop bots and other systems (maybe like Kodi too) from downloading the subtitles off of their websites. I absolutely hate captchas. You need to pass it even if you sign in. They have one where you have to match the pictures to the three categories and no matter what I do I cannot get past that stupid captcha screen and I know the pictures are in the right categories! Their tech support will not budge and it appears that they do not care the inconvenience they are causing people.

On my side I understood the problem. Maybe this can help you.

I've just had the very same problem a few minutes ago when I decided to stop trying and to download the subtitle myself from the browser. When I tried I got the error message that I've being downloading too many subtitles from the same IP and the Firewall was blocking me. Using a proxy allowed me to download that single subtitle.
So, it's a matter of don't trying too much. The trick to restart the modem/router works if you get a dynamic IP from your ISP.

searching on their website is also broken, I guess this is the reason:
