It’s time for the February technical update – check out the improvements we have added to the Stremio desktop app.
Over the last few months, VPN users may have experienced an annoying issue with the OpenSubtitles addon: some subtitle options were returning a message urging users to login to OpenSubtitles.
Recently, we pushed out a mitigation for this issue and it should no longer be present. If you still experience the issue above, please make sure you have updated to the last Stremio version; you can also log a ticket through our “Help” section.
Bug in the addon system
Last week, on the 16th of February, we discovered a a few critical bugs with the addon system:
- Legacy addons with an invalid version string may break the third-party addon catalog;
- Installing addons from the desktop version might result in the Android version crashing due to an inconsistency in the versions of one of our core modules.
The fix for both is simple: install the latest versions on both desktop and Android, from our website or from the Google Play store.
We’ve received a few requests for a “random movie” functionality. We’ve created a cool new page that we call Stremio Dice. It suggests a random movie each time you refresh it. Try it, it’s fun!
Stremio Catalog Chooser & IMDb list addon
We’ve created a little tool that allows you to add various catalogs to Stremio, sourced from IMDb lists: the Stremio Catalog Builder.
Here is how to use it:
- Go to the Catalog Builder page.
- Select the catalog(s) you want to import to Stremio.
- Click on “Generate”.
- On the next page, click on “Load catalogs”.
- A pop-up will appear asking you to open your Stremio app. Click on “Open Stremio”.
- In the Stremio app, click on the green “Install” button for the personalized catalog addon(s) you have just generated.
ESC button behavior in the Player
Originally, the default behavior of the Stremio player when pressing ESC was to exit full-screen mode if it was enabled, or to exit the player when full-screen wasn’t active.
For consistency, we changed that behavior to always going back, but following some user complaints, we reverted this and made it into a setting.
What’s new at the office
Our neighbors got a baby corgi. We invited said puppy for walk through our office, and the puppy approved. Bellies were rubbed, faces were licked, and treats were secretly given to the pupster. It was a productive day.

I would like that the films xxx or porno are not shown freely in the app, it would have to have a password or indication that is being accessed to them.
I agree. Stremio needs a Parental Control PIN.
Thanks for all the update’s but it looks like the “start next episode” fubction does not work any more. Am I doing something wrong or……….

Hi i have stremio on androind and pc i noticed that the windows version have the option to change the language in some movies but this feature doesn’t is available on Android, i would like to have that option please KEEP DOING THAT GREAT WORK STREMIO !!!
So I would like to ask if it’s possible to change the rewinding feature on Stremio to 10 or 15 seconds instead of 30. I personally use Stremio to learn English and I often have to go back a little the video to make sure I understand the content, but 30 seconds it’s a bit too much in my opinion. Even if it’s no possible to do so, at least give us a option where we can decide the time we want to be rewind.
Other than that, the app is great and I look forward to new updates.
The 18+ video extension session would be nice if it was in another tab, gets very pissed off and mingles with the movies on the panel in the “Keep Watching” part, it’s annoying to have to delete the views if someone else uses it the program, like some member of my family like my son or daughter.
The good would be as I said, in another tab with password.
Other than that the program is wonderful, very light and rarely happens a bug!
