What would you like to do?
Automatically download subtitles in mpv using subliminal.
-- requires subliminal, version 1.0 or newer
-- default keybinding: b
-- add the following to your input.conf to change the default keybinding:
-- keyname script_binding auto_load_subs
local utils = require 'mp.utils'
function load_sub_fn()
subl = "/usr/local/bin/subliminal" -- use 'which subliminal' to find the path
mp.msg.info("Searching subtitle")
mp.osd_message("Searching subtitle")
t = {}
t.args = {subl, "download", "-s", "-l", "en", mp.get_property("path")}
res = utils.subprocess(t)
if res.status == 0 then
mp.commandv("rescan_external_files", "reselect")
mp.msg.info("Subtitle download succeeded")
mp.osd_message("Subtitle download succeeded")
else
mp.msg.warn("Subtitle download failed")
mp.osd_message("Subtitle download failed")
end
end
mp.add_key_binding("b", "auto_load_subs", load_sub_fn)

My distro does no have subliminal on the repos, but your script can use qnapi too instead of subliminal, the only difference would be the arguments:
t.args = {subl, "-q", "-c", "-l", "en", mp.get_property("path")}

and the binary path, of course:
subl = "/usr/bin/qnapi"

But they are pretty similar. I used it and works well. Thanks.

What about using this as fallback option?

It's not working for me...

@sunrisewestern Change invocation to

    t.args = {subl, "download", "-l", "zh", "--", path}
