Android Add-on to launch external players with subtitles
#1
How to install:
  1. Download add-on and extract to /sdcard/Android/data/org.xbmc.kodi/files/.kodi/addons (or wherever your addons directory is)
  2. Install Player Launcher For Kodi apk

How to use:
  1. Start playing a video (even streaming videos from video add-ons) in Kodi
  2. Download subtitles if needed
  3. Press close button (x in the upper right corner for the default skin)
  4. Press home button (bottom right corner for the default skin)
  5. Go to "Programs"->"Program Add-ons"
  6. Select "Play using"
  7. From the "Complete action using" popup select a video player

To avoid steps 3-6 you can add a button in your skin (VideoOSD.xml) with: <onclick>RunScript(plugin.program.playusing)</onclick>

As far as I know currently the following players support subs*:
  • MX Player
  • AllCast
  • BubbleUPnP
  • LocalCast (beta)

This means you can now easily cast streaming videos with subtitles to Chromecast from Kodi.

* The player needs to support the subs extra in the received intent
