NetflixSubLoader: Import external subtitles

First of all, I want to thank the devs here for creating this great extension. It’s helped me a lot in learning. This post isn’t meant to detract from the wonderful work they’ve done, but to add onto it.

One thing that’s always frustrated me as that Netflix Japan has a lot of anime, but the majority of titles have no EN subs. This means it’s impossible to watch with EN and JP subs at the same time. Wouldn’t it be great if it were possible to upload EN subs? Well now you can!

Introducing NetflixSubLoader. This script is meant to work with LLN to upload subtitles for your native language. I don’t recommend uploading for the language you wish to learn, because it lacks a dictionary and all the other awesome features from LLN. LLN is required for this script to work. I haven’t tested this with languages besides EN, but it should work with others. Also, at the moment only WEBVTT format is supported. I’m working hard to add more formats.

To the devs, I hope this doesn’t violate any forum rules. I’m happy to help integrate these features into LLN for free. Also, it’s open source so feel free to integrate yourself.

Okay, I just made an account only to thank you.
This is amazing!!

Aside from the intended way to use it that you’ve already mentioned (which is already super neat!), it’s great for TL subs as well.
I was looking for a way to make custom subtitles on Netflix selectable for dictionary purposes
(Since unfortunately, LNN isn’t compatible with custom subtitles on its own. And my regional Netflix often doesn’t have target language subs).

And it works perfectly!! Finally lol, I was looking forever for an extension that can do that. But I could only ever find ones that either allow custom subtitles, or make subtitles selectable.

The alignment feature is also probably the most usable one I’ve ever seen, makes so much sense to just compare the custom subtitles to the ones in a different language that are already synced. So much easier than trying to match them to what’s being said in the video.

The only thing that’d make this even better is if srt files were supported so you don’t have to convert them first, but that’s not that big of a deal.

Thanks so much!!

Thanks for the feedback! I’m glad it was helpful. I basically just put in the features that I myself wanted to use :grin:

I just posted an update with support for srt files and some bug fixes, hope that helps.
