With the popularity of Kodi, there is a good chance that some users will use or will want to use subtitles to read their content. While subtitles are fine for viewers who are deaf, they allow users to watch an unusual volume of content, understand languages ​​that are not their own, and help viewers hear what is being said with frequent bold accents. spoils the viewing experience. Subtitles are an essential part of the audience for plenty of entertainment and thankfully Kodi fully supports downloading and using subtitles with your media playback and Kodi has supported it since v13 “Gotham”. Still, enable subtitles and you will need a plugin to get the subtitles from the web. Let’s move on to adding subtitles to your Kodi client.

Enabling Subtitles

To download and view the subtitles in the standard Kodi video playback window, we have to make sure that the subtitles are enabled on your Kodi device and if they don’t then we have to add them back to the software. Kodi requires subtitles to be enabled first before adding them to your platform; so that users are not confused if the downloaded subtitle packages are not visible when using the service.

Start by opening Kodi on the platform of your choice, be it your PC, Android device, Fire Stick, or any of the many other platforms supported by Kodi developers. Using the remote, cursor, or arrow keys, select the Settings icon in the upper left of the screen to open the Configurations menu. Select the first option, “Player Settings” to open the preferences list of your Kodi player. On the left side of the menu, Videos, Music, Discs etc. You will see a list of options for changing the options. Scroll down this list until we reach “Language Settings” where we will find options for subtitle settings.

Find the Subtitles subheading in the menu – it’s second in this list and make sure it’s set to “Original Stream Language”. Alternatively, if you want to watch the content in a different language, you can set it to support this option. only one option. Also note that there are some options in this settings menu to change how subtitles appear inside Kodi, including an option to change the font preference. By default, this option is set to Arial, a pretty standard sans serif font, but you can set Arial to teletext if you have trouble reading it. After setting this setting, go to Download Services options to edit how the subtitle packs are downloaded to your device. Your subtitle language preferences, make sure it is set to the language(s) you want to view, English or some other option. English is the default selection, but you can add more packages if you want. Finally, be sure to set the appropriate download location for your subtitle packages, next to the video stream download (by default), or wherever you want it to save elsewhere on your platform. Once this is set, you can cancel the settings and return to the main Kodi menu. Be sure to set it next to the video stream download (by default) or anywhere else on your platform where you want it to save. Once this is set, you can cancel the settings and return to the main Kodi menu. Be sure to set it next to the video stream download (by default) or anywhere else on your platform where you want it to save. Once this is set, you can cancel the settings and return to the main Kodi menu.

Adding Subtitle Client

Now that we have your platform’s subtitle settings set up, we will need to download an addon to Kodi so that you can properly use subtitles on your device. Kodi is built on being open and accessible to all kinds of apps and add-ons for your device; It is the main reason why most users choose Kodi as their favorite media streaming service. Kodi allows users to add both approved and third-party addons to the Kodi instance using their application repositories, but we won’t have to add an external repo to use subtitles based on subtitles. Kodi comes with a large list of approved and default apps that you can add to your Kodi platform from the addon browser, and even subtitles have their own category. Let’s go inside.

Start by opening the addon browser from the Kodi home screen by clicking the Addons menu on the left side of the screen. This will open a list of every addon enabled on your device, but it will also give a shortcut to the addon browser where we need to add subtitles to your device. Click or click the open box icon at the top left of the screen to open the Add-On browser in Kodi, and you’ll be presented with five options for adding new apps to your client. We need to use the repositories already available in Kodi, so choose the third option, “Install from Repository”. Open this menu and select Subtitles from the list. It’s sorted in alphabetical order so you can find the subtitle plugins option near the bottom of the menu.

The subtitle category loads a long list of options and options you can choose to download, most of which appear as URLs in their title. You can download any service you want, but we recommend using OpenSubtitles.org. An open platform for most subtitles, OpenSubtitles.org makes it easy to add subtitles to any video, both local and streaming. They track subtitles for both television and movie, so you can grab the subtitle options regardless of the type of media you’re watching and make an easy addition to any list. Click to add OpenSubtitles to your Kodi platform, then click menu option.

Now that we have OpenSubtitles installed on your device, open your web browser on your computer and use this link to install OpenSubtitles’ website on your computer. To be able to use the platform, you need to sign up for OpenSubtitles on their website because the Kodi addon requires an account. Enter your email, username and password and click CAPTCHA to register your account. If the CAPTCHA does not load, you may need to disable the ad blocker. To finish the registration of your account, you need to check your e-mail. If the email is not appearing in your inbox, you may need to resend the email using the link provided by OpenSubtitles. After registering the account, return to Kodi and hit the “Configure” icon on this screen. If the Configure icon is grayed out, exit the menu and re-enter the OpenSubtitles page. In the configuration menu you will see entries for your username and password; enter them and select OK. Once OpenSubtitles has been added to Kodi, you will return to the previous menu, after which you can return to the main menu of Kodi.

Enabling OpenSubtitles

After adding OpenSubtitles to Kodi, all you have to do is have OpenSubtitles enabled and working properly on your platform. Even though you have the addon installed with Kodi, it may not work properly until you go back to the settings and have the app enabled and ready to work on any of the video services you have added to Kodi. To do this we have to go back to the Settings menu to take another look at our subtitle preferences.

Start by clicking or tapping the Settings gear icon again to open your preferences and select Player Settings again. Select Language settings again from the left-hand menu and scroll down once more to the Download Services setting. You will see that Kodi’s settings have been revamped with some new options, and these are the ones that need to change. Previously, your Kodi instance didn’t have any option to set default subtitle options because you didn’t add an option for your subtitles. Now that OpenSubtitles.org is built inside Kodi, you can tweak and change your default subtitle download settings.

There are four main settings we have to look at to change inside Kodi. These settings will ensure that your Kodi device can display subtitles correctly based on your own personal preferences.

  • Pause while searching for subtitles : This setting is enabled by default and once enabled will allow your Kodi player to pause the playback of your video while searching the web for subtitles. This means you won’t miss any of the show or movie you’re watching without captions on your screen, but it does mean you might have to wait a while before choosing your content. If you don’t want this to be enabled, you can disable it by disabling the setting.
  • Automatic download of first subtitle : This setting is disabled by default, allowing you to automatically download the first list in OpenSubtitles without having to open the first list. This option works well for most of the main content as it perfectly anticipates the option you want to use for your content. However, if you want automatic download subtitles, you still need to enable the toggle by enabling it.
  • Default TV show service and Default movie service : The last two settings are the most important for changing this list; because these are the settings that allow your device to properly support subtitles when viewing content. These settings are invisible until you have an option to choose from and allow you to choose your default subtitle provider when viewing background content. For both, you’ll want to click them and enable them using OpenSubtitles.org or any other subtitle service you want to use. When you first add a subtitle service, it will be set to None, so be sure to change it before leaving this menu.

Once you have set them as you see fit, you can return to the Kodi main menu.
