v18 Kodi doesn't display external subtitle
Hi everyone. I've been having this issue since 17.6 and with the recent update to 18, it's still there.

Kodi isn't displaying subtitles with shows that have external subtitle files (same name as video file, in the same directory).

But when I go to the Subtitles menu, the popup indicates an external subtitle file is present (and it's there when I look in the directory). The subtitles show when I play the video on a Mac app.

However, when I use Kodi to download a subtitle, it proceeds to show them when playing the video. (Which is what I've been doing all this time but I figured it's time I try to fix this!)

How can I troubleshoot this? Should I upload a log? Is it a debug log from Kodi that's required?

Oddly, previously before rebooting Kodi, I tried to play Insecure.S01E04.720p.BluRay.x264-DEMAND-postbot.mkv and there was no subtitles. After the reboot, subtitles show.

But the issue happens again when I play the file Insecure.S01E05.720p.BluRay.x264-DEMAND.mkv.
According to the Emby addon developer here, the issue could be with Kodi.
