Bug Description

(to wishlist)
Sometimes authentication to opensubtitles takes long time, and I have to wait.
Could You make Opensubdownloader to login in background (I mean without additional window, I think info in left-bottom corner is enough), and let me choose video or folder in the same time?
When I chose file before authentication, it should of course wait until authentication is completed :)

That's because the API for opensubtitles.org has changed..

Host for API definitely changed
Posted on March 12th, 2010 by allplayer

Hi everybody,

today we decided to definitely change the host for API requests (XML-RPC) to api.opensubtitles.org. In other words - this means some outdated programs, which works with old host (www.opensubtitles.org) won’t work anymore. This change is done because we need to put API requests on different servers in easy way. So, if your program doesn’t work, try to go to preferences, and set the API XML-RPC URL path to http://api.opensubtitles.org/xml-rpc

I wrote about this change in july 2009, changes was done on trac around 5 months ago and I sent mail to program developers around 2 weeks ago, so I believe, everything will be OK :)

We are working hard on adding next server, because in peak times, there is really bad response time. Also there will be some small ads in subtitles itself to monetize API traffic for common users.
