[Subtitles] Manual subtitle download
When the subtitle is not found how about letting users input the search string and manually picking a sub?
I recently watched BluRay version of TV Show episodes and Zappiti kept downloading some basic TV subtitles with "Previously on..." and was totally out of sync... Also had issues with movies that were "Extended" or "Director's cut", with Zappiti downloading another version.
The Zappiti Sub function was totally useless and I had to download all of them manually.
Also this function would help to decide if we want to chose subtitles just with dialogue or with added elements like names and sound effects (for the hard hearing). I am very surprised that after all these years this is still not an option on Zappiti when every other box or software is offering it : My very old Mede8er, VLC, Plex, Infuse, Zidoo, Dune, Kodi, pretty much all the competition! It is a no brainer update.

I can let the Zappiti download a subtitle, but when it is not compatible with the movie I cannot select another one.
This is very annoying.
When I had my Dune, I could select a subtitle from opensubtitles
I am very disappointed this is not possible on the Zappiti
The development team is already working on this for more than a year, will it become available soon?
Otherwise I think I need to replace the Zappiti back to Dune
Please add an option to manually browse for an external subtitle. No matter what is the name of the subtitle file. Same name of the movie and subtitle to get thing work is the complete nonsense. This feature had 10 year old Mede8er flawlesly working. Player is useless without that option for many people who use subtitles.
Add an option to enter URL with subtitles to download. That feature has Kodi from years ago.
