Download, convert subtitles for NRK TV (tv.nrk.no) programmes.
- Python 3.4+

To download subtitles for a programme, you first need to figure out the programme ID. This can be easily extracted from the programme URL. For example, the ID for this programme, http://tv.nrk.no/serie/nytt-paa-nytt/MUHH29005014/26-12-2014, is MUHH29005014.
Provide this ID to nrksub as the first argument to fetch the subtitles:
$ ./nrksub.py MUHH29005014
All command line options and arguments, and their purposes can be queried using the help switch:
$ ./nrksub.py --help
By default, nrksub will print the subtitles out to STDOUT. To write to a file, provide a file name as the second argument:
$ ./nrksub.py MUHH29005014 nytt-paa-nytt-26-12-2014.srt
nrksub can translate the Norwegian subtitles provided by NRK automatically using Google Translate. The translations are by no means perfect, but they are better than nothing. By default, the subtitles are translated to English, but you can use any language supported by Google Translate:
$ ./nrksub.py --lang es MUHH29005014 Spanish output $ ./nrksub.py --lang de MUHH29005014 German output
If you want the original Norwegian subtitles, set the language to no (for Norwegian). This will skip the translation process:
$ ./nrksub.py --lang no MUHH29005014
By default, nrksub will output SRT format subtitles. nrksub can also output TTML format subtitles, but this is mostly for debugging purposes and of little use, as rarely any video player supports them:
$ ./nrksub.py --format ttml MUHH29005014
More formats maybe added in the future, if I have the time.
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
