Add subtitles to KodiMatrix Builds

Help! Due to hearing loss I watch everything with subtitles.
I’m now using 4k Max stick, and kodi 19.4 AND Green Dragon Build (I have same problem with Crew build). Problem is that I can’t add open subtitles org or A4k services to find subtitles for the downloads without them in the stream. I used to be able to do this. You can’t get back to the actual Kodi estuary display to get to Kodi Settings. Even then, I can add a source address; But I can’t download the zip and load the repository. Is it something about the Amazon firestick that now prevents this load? It used to be, that the subtitles org program worked on all Kodi Builds and APKS. I really don’t want to take the APK only route. Anyone have any ideas how I can manage to add the subtitle services into the builds?
Thank you all for any assistance

This might help. Or may point you in the right direction.


Hello and thanks for taking the time to respond - I’m already registered at open subtitles BUT my problem is how to move from the Kodi build to the actual Kodi home display to perform the install from zip and repo steps etc. So I shall rephrase the question:

  1. How do I move temporarily my Kodi Build display, back to the traditional Kodi default home display? I’m not offered an estuary skin change on the build.
  2. V19.4 requires unknown source authorization for every addon app before it allows the install. Without a build this can be done easily; but I’m stumped when using a build and can’t change the skin.
    Any ideas?

You need to get to the settings tab in the build and select skin,then check estuary and apply or ok. You have to do that, or it won’t take. Then it will go back to stock.

Thanks. I was going nuts finding this in skin settings, Then I finally remembered it is in the Interface menu. I slapped my face for being so stupid.

Once again, thank you for your responses. Much appreciated.

So glad you got it working! Have a great day :v:
