Some popular video addons for Kodi already have automatic subtitles capabilities and that’s great, but some times you need more control over your subtitle selection process to get the right subtitles for your video. In this guide we are going to enable subtitles on Kodi 17 with Estuary skin using a couple of subtitles addons so you can watch all your TV shows and movies with subtitles in any language.

 

1.  Click the Add-ons tab on the Home Screen.  addons tab on estuary skin with kodi 17

Enable automatic subtitles

If you use subtitles often you’ll find that clicking on Subtitles > Download every time you start a video gets old very fast. Lets solve that by installing the Autosubs service.

13. Go to the Home Screen and click on the Add-ons tab.addons tab on estuary skin with kodi 17

When choosing a subtitles file keep in mind the video quality and try to match it with the subtitle file name, this way you’ll have better chances of getting the right subtitles for your video.

 

How to create an OpenSubtitles Account

Since last update, OpenSubtitles requires authentication or you’ll get the following error message: “error searching for subtitles, your open subtitles.org username or password is empty or not valid” or “In order to continue OpenSubtitles.org subtitles service you need to Log In”.

To create an OpenSubtitles account go to http://www.opensubtitles.org/newuser and register, it’s free. Once you have created and verified your account open Kodi and follow these steps:

  • Go to Add-ons >  My Add-ons > Subtitles and click on OpenSubtitles.org.
  • Press Update to make sure you have the latest version (at least 5.0.16).
  • Then press Configure and enter your username and password.
  • Click OK to confirm.

Now you should be able to get subtitles from OpenSubtitles’ extensive archive.

    I’ve tried all of the above. In older kodi everything worked fine. v17 keeps giving the same message: “error searching for subtitles, your open subtitles.org username or password is empty or not valid”

    It is really impossible to skip from channel to channel using ZEMtv. I can’t scroll to a particular channel. Very disturbing..

    “When choosing a subtitles file keep in mind the video quality and try to match it with the subtitle file name, this way you’ll have better chances of getting the right subtitles for your video.”

    On the krypton estuary skin, how can you view the full title (showing the uploader and the quality) of the video?
