OsDown – A script to download subtitles

Lately I’ve been watching a lot of movies using Apple TV as a streamer.
I am using Beamer as the streaming app for my macbook air. Beamer also supports streaming with subtitles, which is a very cool feature, but you need to download the subtitles manually.

A year ago, I’ve built a Mac app called Sheeplayer¬†which is a basic video player with the capabilities of downloading subtitles automatically from OpenSubtitles. Today I’ve decided to extract this capability into an independent script so I will be able to download the subtitles automatically to a given folder without executing any other program.

The script can be found at my github at:
