Multiple same size subtitle files being created each night

Recommended Posts

I noticed that for the past while, multiple same size subtitle files have been downloading over and over again each night.  not sure if this is an emby or plugin issue.  attached are logs and a screenshot.  seem to be happening with non english subtitles.  i provided a screenshot with a timestamp of download of latest subtitle file and todays logs with that timestamp. but there are a lot of subtitles constantly redownloading each night and writing to and creating a new file.

just an update, the files with multiple downloads now are actually *.pl.txt so it is a text file.

Right so the downloader downloads .txt subtitles which is not actually a format supported by emby server, so then it never gets recognized by the library scan and ends up downloading again.

 

Are the contents just the same as regular srt?

no, they are a little different.  i attached screenshots for comparison.. will there be any possible fix coming to stop the multiple subtitle downloads after one copy is there?

Ok thanks, we'll just ignore unsupported formats when searching for downloads. These txt's look simple enough that we might be able to convert them to srt to avoid losing the ability to download them.

I have the same issue, but for me Emby seems to download multiple copies of the subtitle regardless of the format, it can be both .sub snd .srt.

Some movies have like 300 copies och the same subtitle file !?!

Sorry for the late response, here comes the embyserver.txt log file:

I notice the movie Sniper 3, for which I currently have 482 .sub-files, shows up alot, and it seems to download  about 10-15 new ones every day.

And the funny thing is that all subtitles seems to be recognized by Emby, and I can select them in the "Subtitles" drop-down menu, see below:

But when I select any of the subtitles I get the following error when I try to play the movie:

And it sn't happening for this move alone, but for rather alot of movies.
