It’s a well known fact that you can download latest movie and TV shows from private BitTorrent trackers. However, the same cannot be said about matching subtitles for such releases. Most early/leaked versions of movie & TV releases do not come packed with subtitles - users are often left to download subs from external sources such as Opensubtitles.org and Subscene.com when this happens. If you were annoyed by this factor, TorrentLeech’s (TL) brand new automatic subtitle fetching service should be welcome news to you. TL has partnered with YourSubs, a trendy new subtitle index, to provide matching sub downloads for movie and TV shows uploaded to the tracker.
If you haven’t already seen it, a news post from the front page is quoted below:
As many of you may have noticed, from now on, movie and tv torrents, include in their details page a subtitle list, grabbed from a brand new subtitle site: Yoursubs.org
It is still in beta phase, so small bugs may exist. Of course, we are going to optimize it in the coming week, and add new features like one-click upload of a subtitle, right from the torrent details page. In the mean time, whoever wants to upload subtitles, may do so at yoursubs.org and they will appear in TorrentLeech as soon as they are authorized by YS staff.
YourSubs.org is a relatively new subtitle index and to be honest I only heard about them for the first time in TL’s announcement. Anyways they seem to have a surprisingly good amount of indexed subtitles for a newcomer. Flashy interface and the modern look and feel is also a plus. However, I found the site’s search function to be a little inefficient – it would only return results if search query exactly matched full movie title (as displayed in drop down menu). TL users needn’t worry about this – so far the service on TL seems to work fine:
With the popularity boost given by partnership with TL, expect YourSubs to grow rapidly in the future. And if you have a TL account (if you are a regular reader of FILEnetworks, you should have one by now), go check out this new feature – it should be visible on new movie and TV series/episode uploads.
