Subtitles background
I just started using Kodi with Nvidia Shield, mostly with videos I have on an external HDD. Is there a way to add/enable a black background to the subtitles, though? I searched but I have yet to be successful to find a solution. Since my 76 yrs old mom often watches subtitled videos with me, and she has an eyes condition, it would help a lot.
The subtitles I’m using are .srt and are NOT automatically downloaded.

Thank you very much un advance
It is possible, however not natively.
You need to have subtitles in Substation Alpha format (.ass) which allows to have solid background.
You can try if this add-on suits your needs (it converts subtitles to SSA format with custom background).
Odroid C2; Libreelec 8.2.5
It is supported natively in Kodi 18. Just set the subtitle background opacity to a value higher than 0% in the subtitles section of the settings
