Before we Proceed

We highly recommend using a VPN when using Kodi. Kodi users have been known to receive copyright infringement notices for streaming movies, sports, and TV shows through various addons. If you would like to keep your streaming habits private, our recommendation is IPVanish - a complete privacy solution for Kodi users. It's also worth noting that purchasing a 12 month subscription will give you two months free.

How to download and setup subtitles in Exodus

There are two ways to setup subtitles in Exodus.  The easiest way is to use a subtitles service like Open Subtitles to download subtitles from within Kodi.  Alternatively, if you already have a subtitle file that you want to use you can import the subtitles file via the settings menu.

Note: If you’re watching an obscure or brand new movie or TV show episode, you may have trouble finding subtitles.

Using Open Subtitles to download subtitles in Exodus

4.  Choose the subtitle file you want to use

Open Subtitles users can rate individual subtitle files.  Low ranking subtitle files are often inaccurate or out of sync.

Note: If Open Subtitles doesn’t have the subtitles you want, try downloading some other subtitle services.  As the screenshot below demonstrates, it is possible to use two subtitle services simultaneously.  Super Subtitles doesn’t have as many subtitles as Open Subtitles, but it is a good backup for Open Subtitles.

There are many websites that offer free subtitle downloads.  Here are a few popular subtitle sites you can use:

  • Moviesubtitles.org.  This website has one of the largest collection of subtitles around.  Many different languages are featured here, including Spanish, German and Dutch.
  • Subscene.com.  With over 319265 subtitles, SubScene is also a huge repository of subtitle files.  However, you have to enable JavaScript if you want to download subs.
  • OpenSubtitles.com.  If for some reason you can’t download the Open Subtitles addon for Kodi, you can just download subtitle files directly from the site instead.
  • DivxTitles.com.  With 135218 subtitle files, this site is also quite large.
  • SubtitlesBox.com.  In addition to hosting subtitle files, this site also contains celebrity news and gossip, actor profiles and more.
  • SubtitleOnline.com.  Subtitle Online is relatively new, so it doesn’t have as many subtitles as the other sites listed above.  However, if you want to watch a popular TV show there’s a big chance that you’ll find what you’re looking for here.  Subtitles are available in 11 different languages.
