Description Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2019-04-14 11:37:45 UTC
When I try to load subtitles, it simply downloads and gets stuck. I reported to:

And there are similar reports in internet (specially related with the upstream VLSub copy, that is a bit older than the VLC one)

For now I would change default in our ebuild to use "manual" download instead of broken "save". For that, we could simply change:
downloadBehaviour = 'save',

downloadBehaviour = 'manual',

in share/lua/extensions/VLSub.lua

That way, at least, people won't get the broken behavior by default

Sure, just do it.
