I use Ubuntu 18.04 with VLC 3.0.7. Since some time ago, I am not able to automatically download subtitles through VLC. I have to use the Click here to open the file option in the error dialogue and download them using Firefox. The subtitles were supposed to be automatically downloaded to the folder in which the video file is located.
I tried setting folder permissions using
755. Both failed. Any help will be great.
