Since I expect that a language option for the video or subtitles is added ... It would be great if so.
Well, the good news is, the developer we hired wrote a YouTube download module that handles resolving URLs from a few hundred websites, and the site you mentioned is supported. We'll need to figure out how best to gather the URLs for the actual trailer pages, and that can be easy or difficult depending on the site in question. What we want to do is make this add-on as simple as possible, with as little configuration as possible. That said, I know that we can allow you to manually add in streaming trailers from a URL with the video module in the add-on (all of that will be clear when you all see it), but we're not sure how to automate scraping and playing trailers in different languages from non-standard (i.e. YouTube, Apple Trailers) websites. I've added it to our feature board, but it may not get attention until after we've released the add-on, so get prepped for initial disappointment.

The random trailers buffer heavily before starting and sometimes during playback stop and buffer again. When I play the same trailers through the apple trailers addon they play straight without any prior buffering. I have 12mbps stable connection.
Personally, I'm hoping that by essentially re-writing CE from the ground up, we'll be optimizing code and eliminating issues. Truly, we won't know until we start to test it. I occasionally have buffering issues myself. It really depends on the type of connection you have, and how much bandwidth any other services (TV for example) using the same internet connection is using at the time you're buffering videos. I'm hoping this will be a non-issue, but we'll have to wait and see.

In my opinion, this is something that should be included with the core app, and maintained on my the Kodi team. Many thanks to giftie for getting the ball rolling, and it now looks like it is in good hands again!
This has always been my personal favorite add-on for Kodi, so much so that it inspired me to create ridiculous amounts of content for it. Now that we have a team of folks contributing and an exciting (and so far invaluable) new partnership with EmuMovies, we're able to do neat things like this add-on and helping with hosting websites for folks in the Kodi community. Nuka1195 and giftie have done an incredible job with this add-on. I know giftie was busy dealing with real life the last time I spoke to him, and we'd like to see his vision become a staple of Kodi (and Kodi based entertainment platforms) and the community as a whole.
The guy developing this add-on for us recently created an add-on that you all might recognize from the front page of the Kodi website. He's a member of the Kodi team, so he knows how to squeeze every ounce of performance and beauty out of Kodi.

Shhhhhhh! A Kodi team member is the one making this add-on more powerful than you could possibly imagine.
