If anyone can please help:

I installed the subtitles add on by simply installing it via the xbmc interface (my friend did the exact same thing.) When at my friends house he can go into the subtitle option on the play menu during the movie and it will automatically look for subtitles. Mine however is greyed out and inaccessible. I was watching Star Trek VI the other day and anytime anyone spoke Klingon there were no subtitles. This is obviously frustrating and I don't want to have to browse around the internet to look for a .srt file mid-way through the movie.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

What skin are you using? Usually the skin will provide a setting to identify which addon you want to use for subtitle support.

I'm using confluence. I'm not exactly sure what you mean in terms of the subtitle support.

I´ve tried another skin and it worked.

Seems that have to get used to this new one instead.

Go to System -> Skin -> Add-on shortcuts
Select "Enable Subtitle Download in VIdeo OSD"
Click on "Path to subtitle add-on" and select the subtitles addon.

Nevermind, should've read the other post more carefully!

---

Make sure you've installed the XBMC subtitles Add-On and it is enabled. If it's still causing trouble, make sure that the PATH TO SUBTITLE ADD-ON (just underneath the Enable subtitle download) points to XBMC subtitles.

Thanks for the splendid job on everything!
