  • (2021-10-06) zzzavi: Its fire, but how do u make the subtitles smaller/make them sit at the bottom of screen. Atm they are taking up the middle of the screen obstructing the anime biches
  • (2021-09-23) Thomas Bailey: Works like a charm!
  • (2021-09-10) David Salgado: Works beautifully, and means I can use Yomichan to highlight Japanese words in subtitles and immediately get a translation. After a Netflix update broke the extension, the developer fixed it within 24 hours.
  • (2021-09-09) Festosterone McApple: Thank you so much for the speedy update. Can't imagine what I'd do without this extension. 😅
  • (2021-09-08) Clus Agus: Used to be great but doesnt seem to work anymore, at least not on netflix japan
  • (2021-05-19) Ari Pineles: Works great. Zero problems and really fast download times. Thank you!
  • (2021-05-08) Caio Dias: I downloaded it but it doesn't seem to be working, not even active on my Chrome. I wonder if this has something to do with the fact that I'm in Brazil? (PS: Gave 5 stars to not let the overall rating go down, but I'd like help anyways)
  • (2021-03-18) Jordy V.: I almost never write reviews, but providing an option to download the subtitles in a perfectly formatted SRT file is a literal godsend. It makes it so simple, especially for non-Latin alphabet scripts. Thank you so much.
  • (2021-01-22) korean immersion: It's awesome cuz subtitles can be copied! But please add the function so we can change the size of subs. Thanks!
  • (2020-12-16) Dennis Pulido: For some reason, this is not working on my Chrome. I tried it on Firefox, it's also not working. Then I changed from Windows Desktop to my Macbook and same problems. Other browser add-ons with similar function (such as Learning Languages and Migaku) experience the same issue (speaking of Migaku, it works on Youtube but not Netflix, so I'm guessing this is a Netflix-only issue). I'm not sure if this issue is unique to me, or Netflix tweaked their code that affected compatibility. Will re-review when fixed.
  • (2020-10-11) KK HH: 太強了 可以直接下載SRT字幕, 若是也有 調整字幕 顏色 高低位置 則更棒了。 期待後續版本可以加入 調整字幕 高低位置 顏色的功能 感謝 作者。
  • (2020-10-11) wasupon duranit: It Works for thai subtitles Thank you for this. ดีมากครับ สามารถใช้โหลดซับภาษาไทยก็ได้ด้วย สระไม่เพี้ยนด้วย
  • (2020-09-11) Curious Bird: This + Yomichan + Anki = WOW!
  • (2020-08-15) David Ray: Hi, thank you for providing with us such as a useful extension. I was wondering if it's possible to adjust the size of the sub box. Currently, the sub box is too big!
  • (2020-07-07) Amr Star: لماذا لا يتم تحديث الاضافة الي الان ارجو اصلاح المشكلة في اقرب واقت
  • (2020-07-05) Dario: This extension has so much potential as when it works it does exactly what it sets out to do, and easily allows me to translate text by copying it or using Yomichan to translate specific words. However the majority of the time I cannot even get it to work as it will not even display subtitles. I wish this extension was in a better state, but until it is fixed I cannot recommend it because it is too broken.
  • (2020-06-25) Essam Muhammad: A fixed version of Subadub. https://github.com/rsimmons/subadub/issues/20#issuecomment-612777747
  • (2020-06-23) banana cat: Nice, but seriously needs an option to scale, they're ridiculously huge...
  • (2020-04-13) Essam Muhammad: A fix for the problem of the missing languages. https://github.com/rsimmons/subadub/issues/20#issuecomment-612777747
  • (2020-04-12) Patrick Innerlohinger: Works but doesnt let you choose more than the first three subtitles
  • (2020-04-03) OutsideLane: At first it works if the episode or movie you're watching doesn't have a lot of subtitle options. If there are "too" many, the app will not let you select all of them, so you might see arabic and thai and english in the dropdown menu, but not japanese or italian for example, even tho netflix has them.
  • (2020-03-23) Abderrahman At: thank you for this wonderful addon
  • (2020-03-22) red eyes: I'm giving it 5 stars but there is a problem where the subtitles in my target language won't show up. I have to refresh a video multiple times when there are multiple subtitle files and hope that the subs in my language I want show up. Sometimes I get Chinese subs, sometimes Spanish, sometimes Japanese. It seems random.
  • (2020-03-09) Essam Muhammad: To fix the problem of the missing languages install this fixed unofficial Subadub 0.1.6 manually on Google chrome using "dist" folder, remove Subadub 0.1.5 first. https://github.com/MaxCilauro/subadub/archive/fix-show-all-subs.zip Follow the same steps here for installing Subadub 0.1.6 manually on Google chrome. https://github.com/mwhirls/jimakun#installation
  • (2020-03-09) sadpanda: Please help... this seems to be a problem for many people. Why does Japanese sub shows up like half of the time? Some day it refuses to show up. I even have Language Learning addons and it shows every other language except when watching Japanese show?
  • (2020-03-07) Léa Alex: It worked perfectly at first but these days I don't have the good subs anymore For example when I'm watching terrace house there's no longer japanese, but other languages so I can't use it anymore!
  • (2020-03-06) OutsideLane: Worked like a charm for me! However, i sadly wasn't able to select manually added subtitles from the dropdown menu. I manually added japanese subtitles for a show with another extension (super netflix) and would have liked to make them interactable through subadub (so i could then use yomichan on them). If you would consider making this possible somehow, maybe integrating the use of custom subtitle files directly in subadub, then it's a for me 10/10 :)
  • (2020-03-01) Essam Muhammad: To fix the missing languages problem with Subadub 0.1.5 install this unofficial Subadub 0.1.6 manually on Google Chrome using "dist" folder, remove Subadub 0.1.5 first. https://github.com/MaxCilauro/subadub/archive/fix-show-all-subs.zip Use the same steps from here for installing the unofficial Subadub 0.1.6 manually on Google Chrome. https://github.com/mwhirls/jimakun#installation
  • (2020-02-14) Jimberwolf: Only works 50% of the time
  • (2020-02-09) Allmighty Xerqaeds: Why does it keep removing Japanese as an option??? I have to keep refreshing it 10-20 times to remove chinese or italian as an option until Japanese shows. Is this a bug???
  • (2020-01-18) Manu: its amazing but it seems to me it stopped working as of ... now ... cant make it work again in any chrome
  • (2020-01-14) kl sn: なくてはならない拡張です 2020/01/14辺りからうまく動作しなくなってしまいましたが、「Language Learning with Netflix」という別作者の拡張もインストールして併用するとなぜかSubadubも動作するようになります (SubadubのGitHub Issueのコメントで知りました) Necessary for me, but... Currently does not work To make it work, use with "Language Learning with Netflix" Extension. (see Russel Simmons's GitHub Issue comment)
  • (2020-01-10) Abraham V.: Pretty useful, but the font size is too big and the background color is too dark, can't find any option to change that. sometimes if several people is talking, the subtitles takes half the screen.
  • (2019-12-27) Rambo Sweat: perfect for language learning. one small feature request: it would be wonderful if we had the option to move the subtitles to the top of the screen, as when making sentence cards of the netflix subtitles in english sometimes they overlap.
  • (2019-12-06) Mark Forsythe: Was broken but I used the workaround discussed here: https://github.com/rsimmons/subadub/issues/12#issuecomment-562431398 And now it works again with the use of another extension.
  • (2019-12-04) Elimos Saryu: Doesn't work at all.
  • (2019-11-26) Jacob Miller: Works very well, but please add some customization options!
  • (2019-10-11) David Nevins: What a time saver! Thank you for creating this invaluable tool.
  • (2019-09-23) Lucas: Please add scaling option, my subs are huge lol
  • (2019-09-23) Sam Steady: Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!!! This is glorious!!
  • (2019-07-28) Liam: didnt work anymore!
  • (2019-07-13) Dokkan: Lo acabo de instalar y es muy buen plugin para los estudiantes del japones que quieran aprender viendo contenido en netflix. Muy recomendado :D
  • (2019-06-14) Awetewtewtew Awetwetw: PLEASE ADD AN OPTION TO EDIT FONT AND FONT SIZE. it's unusable for that reason... the lines overlap over each other for some reason! I would love it if there was an option to copy the subtitle that's currently on display on the screen with a keyboard shortcut such a numpad 4. For example, using the screenshot on your add-on page, if I press f4, it would save hoje e um novo dia. - olhe para ele to the clipboard. That function would make the add-on more conducive to language learning. If you have clipq or ditto or any of the many clipboard managers open, by the act of copying, you can collect all the text with unknown words/grammar etc.
  • (2019-05-27) Edvard Edholm: Would live a way to decrease the size and/or background. Otherwise amazing
  • (2019-05-15) Fernando: Perfect! Now I can extract words/phrases when studying Japanese. Thanks!
  • (2019-05-10) 왕수: can u add function about subs position and size adjustment
  • (2019-03-24) Nathan Hales: Perfect. This is one of those things that I didn't know I needed it util I had it. It's very useful!
  • (2019-03-02) Jordan Johnson: Love it! Zero problems!
  • (2019-01-21) Jonathan Smith: You sir/madam are a genius
  • (2019-01-14) Morhlon Harris: Love it. Is there a way to allow customization of the subtitle color/size background etc..?
