    Enabling LOCAL subtitles from Kodi -- location moved to AUDIO settings


    Hi there

    seems to be a conspiracy these days of making it hard to use your own subtitles with local media - of course you can always go through the hassle of renaming all your subtitles to XXXX.en.srt or whatever but why should you when you've already got subtitles say in a subs subfolder of the movie.

    I often use Icelandic subtitles (translate from English usually - timings are pretty accurate and if there's any delay you can shift the time offset anyway).

    Well KODI have simply moved the wretched settings to the AUDIO menu -- I suppose to avoid having too many menus etc this could make some peverse sort of sense but I only found it out by accident -- went through every possible setting on every menu and there are LOADS of them.

    While playing your content simply get into the audio menu.

    (I prefer running this app on my Fire TV to VLC where the subtitle search doesn't work on the latest version).

    Kodi also finds shares quickly with no hassle at all --if you are running a Linux type NAS server still choose Windows SMB shares in the file selection for playing local media and scroll down until you get your server -- works 100% every time -- you must have SAMBA up and running though on your NAS box.

    I sideloaded KODI via the Apps to fire TV and installed from a phone --easy seamless. Loads of documentation on how to do this on Google.

    I wish I'd started with KODI first !!!!! but we all are never too old to learn.

    BTW Kodi also plays iso / Blue Ray files from HDD's and the controller (amazon one if on amazon stick) will select Menus etc. VlC on the amazon stick wont select past the menu screen !!!!.

    Cheers
