Automatically Download Subs in VLC and Resume Play from Last Position

VLC is no doubt the best and most accomplished video player of all times, since it supports all types of video formats, one doesn’t have to worry about downloading codecs again and again and the best part is that it is completely free and open source. As usual, the first job of any developer is to make sure that the app is as simple as possible for all the users to use, but also he has to make sure that it is more than enough for a tech sevy too and that is the case with VLC, in first look everything looks so simple, but when it comes to support and under the hood changes, it is one of the best thing available.

However, there are a little things you need to do manually, in past there were some extension, namely oneĀ VLSub, that allows users to download the Movie subs without doing much effort, now that same thing has been ported in VLC as default, while on the other hand, Resuming playback was also done by installing some extensions, now everything has been ported in VLC as default and all you need is to enable it, thinking how to do it, well I haven’t write the whole story just to waste your time, without further ado, let us continue.
