Download subtitles with Submarine

March 28, 2012

I’m a big user of subtitles, the reason is simple, I always watch movies or series in English, even if I’m French. To help me to understand movies, I use English subtitles. In this way, it’s easier for me to follow the film even if I’m tired. It also help me to learn new words.

Like everything else, you don’t want waste your time looking for subtitles around the web, that why software come naturally for subtitle retrieving tasks. That’s exactly what Submarine does, and well.

I have to say that I didn’t really looked for this kind of program, only tried one, and I’m happy about it. I found Submarine while I was reading one of my favorite section of the Arch Linux official forum called Community Contributons, it worths looking around for some new softwares announcing, some of them has become quite famous since. Anyway, I saw this announcement maybe a month ago of this program called Submarine.

Maybe Submarine isn’t perfect, or doesn’t find every subtitles that I want, but it does a good job for sure.

Here some through about it:

If you’re using Arch Linux, you can find it in AUR and install it via yaourt -S submarine.

Source code can be seen on github, and it’s release under GPLv3. That’s it, no much more to say but thanks to the author of Submarine.
