Subtitles aren't downloaded while connected through VPN
#1
Hi

I am using Kodi on Linux Mint and I'm using PIA (PrivateInternetAccess) VPN. I am able to download add-ons, but when trying to search for subtitles (OpenSubtitles in particular), I get no results. When I disconnected from the VPN it works.
How can I configure it to work properly with PIA?

Thanks

Anyone? Am I the only one seeing this problem?

All I see in your log is two lines saying "failed to connect to service for subtitle search".

Perhaps turn on verbose logging for libCurl?

In the debugging section of settings there is an option to turn on/off specific logging details.

I don't see any difference, maybe you experts can see better ?

I'm having the exact same Problem.
I just setup my VPN using the VPN Manager add-on.
While I tried to find subtitles both subtitle add-on came up with "No subtitle found".

It was weird so I disabled the VPN and the results show up.

Im using latest LibreElec 7.0.2.

I also having the same issues.
I using a NUC computer with VPN from PIA.
When it is on, Kodi can not find/check new films in the database to download cover etc. and it is not possible to search subtitles.
As soon as I turn of the VPN it works.

anny ideas?

Problem still exists? Same here, Win10, Kodi 18, VPN Manager, IPVanish. Opensubtitle IP blackout?

Our current VPN policy (wiki) applies now - as Kodi doesn't need. a VPN to operate, we do not support such usage here.
