Add support for Subscene and addic7ed subtitles services

Post by aaaMMMaaa » 23 Dec 2018, 11:52

Hello, from stock the only two subtitles services available are opensubtitles and podnapisi.
However the two i use the most are subscene(movies) and addic7ed(tv shows) from Kodi.
It is possible to have the opporunity to install these services?

Then MrMC will completelly fullfill whatever i was using Kodi for.

Thank you

Hi,

Addicted plugin is here:
https://github.com/romanvm/service.addic7ed

Subscene just use the one in the official Kodi repo:
https://kodi.wiki/view/Add-on:Subscene.com


Please make these available in Mr.MC! :)

Again, the question is "Do these subtitles services have an API ?"
If not, then the answer is no, we will not resort to scrapping web sites.

Hi,

I asked this once before but got no answer, just putting it out there in hopes of a better future :D
Seeing as there is very low confidence in introducing new subtitle providers, would you be open to considering a more generic approach?

For example, if we could change the URL to the OpenSubtitles API, we could run our own API that conforms to it and use whatever provider in the background. It could also be a custom API that you feel is a good fit for Mr.MC and a custom plugin.

Zero(0) chances that opensubtile API approach will work with any other subtitle service as can be seen from 2 we have included, totally different way of searching and downloading. If you throw a website scrape in the mix it will be impossible to make universal approach without creating a new service for it.

Subtitle services depend on web traffic for revenue and bypassing that is frowned upon.

To be honest I have a hard time seeing why it would be a problem. Looking at the OpenSubtitle API, it seems to me a search query does include enough information to turn it into an appropriate search query on another service

How so? The web scrape would be done by, say, my hypothetical self-made API that conforms to the OpenSubtitle API (from a MrMC perspective).

That's fair, and I agree, unfair to the services (unless they are OK with it).

Anyway, I appreciate the response, and I'm sure you are in a better position to see some obstacles I can't :) .

Webscrape is purely based on regex and changes when the website changes.... we have played this game in Kodi days and it was not a good idea then and is not a good idea now :)

You can’t just turn OpenSubtitle api into webscraper... that’s not how it works. Check the MrMC github on how 2 included services work. Search query does have enough info for OpenSubtitle to return results, but it might have different parameters for other services.... one example is language parameter, OpenSubtitle uses ISO6392B and podnapisi uses ISO6391
