You can report the issue on the add-on page (Watch Foreign Language Movies with Anki - AnkiWeb) or maybe wait for a reply from the author (@kelciour) here.


Thank you for the report. It’ll take some time to update the add-on. As a possible workaround, try to upload your subtitles (probably in .ass format) to https://www.nikse.dk/subtitleedit/online and download as .srt (SubRip).


thank you
