SublightCmd command line interface (advanced users)

SublightCmd is powerful command line tool for advanced users. It enables you to batch download subtitles for all of your video files.

Usage limits: to prevent server overload we have limitation for free users - each user can download 10 subtitles per day with SublightCmd. To overcome this limitation you will have to get Premium account. This limitation does not apply for Sublight application.

Please note: SublightCmd tool can search only subtitles from Sublight database. It can not search subtitles from third party databases (Subscene, Podnapisi.NET, ...). Alternatively you can see also Sublight batch download but it does not allow command line automation.
