I am partially deaf so rely on subtitles. I have a large library of subtitled video files which play back OK on VLC under Linux and Windows, LibreElec on Raspberry Pi, and Kodi 20 sideloaded onto Amazon Fire TV Stick. It’s not the files and it’s not a problem with understanding how to turn subtitles on.
