    I just love this plugin - big thanks! Makes things so much easier!

    Nevertheless, I think it could be much more simple.

    The thing is, when getting sub for a series, result is like 3-50+, and about the first 5-10 is correct. So why not just get the no one, and start playing the movie? I mean, it does show when it is considered a perfect match.

    As a result one would go from ( [c] = click):
    [c] movie -[gettings subs] - [c] top sub - [c] (dialoge) - [c] back/other - [c]back/other - Movie starts

    to (w/"I'm feeling lucky" enabled)
    [c] movie -> revisiting subs - getting top if "perfect" - Movie starts

    Yeah, the only problem is that if you have multiple languages selected (I have English and Finnish) there is no way to set preference by language although I would want that Finnish subtitles are "more" perfect match than same English one.

    Also going back & starting playback is not that trivial since it depends how calling plugins are implemented...

    Even without auto-playing, even a simpler version of this could be incredibly useful:
    Following the OPs nomenclature:
    [c] movie -[gettings subs] - [search for subs. Automatically download the top 1. Automatically go back to the movie info page].

    With only one language selected in the settings, this will work perfectly and will save some time...
