    VLC player Error: code 401 'Unauthorised' (200)


    Know from our experts how you can resolve the problem of Status Code 401 (Unauthorized) in VLC Player while downloading subtitles.

    I use VLC player for watching movies and videos. Many times I download old English movies to watch on VLC. One of the function of VLC is VLsub under the menu tab which helps me download relevant subtitles for the movie.

    I recently faced an error while downloading subtitle on VLC and got the below error:

    Error: code 401 'Unauthorised' (200).

    Even after many attempts the same did not resolve. I even trying updating the VLC player but it did not help. I am using 3.0.11 Vetinari version on VLC.

    Any help will be highly appreciated.

  • This could happen due to various reasons and one has to go through the experiences of other users in this matter. What I can suggest is that there are some good VLC discussion forums in the internet where one can start a fresh thread or find out the existing solutions provided by the forum members. It is worth trying. One such forum site which I had referred earlier for some problem in VLC is - https://forum.videolan.org

    Knowledge is power.

  • To resolve this problem, you need to install the latest version of VLC Player on your device. The old version of VLC Player has some bug that is not supporting for latest media files when playing. The problem is being resolved after the new version of the VLC Player has been installed.
