[Subtitles] Download next to video / Only one per language

James, could we get the following crutial features?

Download subtitles next to video. I have to redownload subtitles on all my Infuse instances, because subtitles are place in the app instead on read/write share.

Also, having option to keep only one (the last downloaded) subtitle file per language would be nice. When I find and download the right subtitles, I’m not interested in the previous ones (for the specified language).

James, et al,

I’ve been testing current Infuse beta by completely avoiding my other watching device (NUC running OpenELEC /Kodi) to identify what is missing or can be improved. I came to the following short list. This naturally assumes that I have all technical details sorted (all my content is available) and that watching is the only area of interest.

  1. Library view (coming together very nicely)
  2. Save subtitles next to file (NAS, router attached HDD, etc) - see reasons in post above
  3. Increase with of subtitle outline (it’s too narrow now, which harms readability)
  4. Keep only 1 subtitle file per language (overwrite previously present one)

I know that if you consume content available in your native language (might be the case FireCore team and many others) these subtitle features might seem as extremely nice-to-haves. However, if you enjoy foreign films / series (whatever the reason - learning language or just being a fan of anime) this might be a decisive factor.

Hi @James

Can you please consider this 2016 wish ? or it´s a tvOS/iOS limitation ?

It would be useful to Infuse be able to download subtitles to next to video file.

Currently where the downloaded subtitles are stored ?
