today we decided to definitely change the host for API requests (XML-RPC) to api.opensubtitles.org. In other words – this means some outdated programs, which works with old host (www.opensubtitles.org) won’t work anymore. This change is done because we need to put API requests on different servers in easy way. So, if your program doesn’t work, try to go to preferences, and set the API XML-RPC URL path to http://api.opensubtitles.org/xml-rpc
We are working hard on adding next server, because in peak times, there is really bad response time. Also there will be some small ads in subtitles itself to monetize API traffic for common users.
