After searching, I saw a few posts about subtitle clarity and the desire for background colour but some were quite old so I thought I would ask again.

Is something like this possible? Ideally with the ability to control the opacity (and colour) on the background from totally transparent to completely opaque.

Is this something I should be asking in a skinning forum? Is it best implemented there?

I have good eyes so not generally a game changer but I was looking at an old black and white show where the subtitles were hard to see on the many mostly-white backgrounds. Has this been discussed?

it discussed from 2009 or maybe earlier but still no response from the devs, but you can try my subtitle addon at http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=313867
