We have always given importance to the subtitles for the videos playing on the Microsoft Windows Operating System or the Apple’s OS X. But this time, we are interested in the XPlayer subtitles for the Linux Operating System.
XPlayer is the media player running on the Linux OS. This will be one among the best media players on which Linux users would love to watch their movies. The credit for developing this goes to Totem (the GNOME media player). Totem has been forked into the XPlayer.
So, now let us get straight to watching the videos with the XPlayer subtitles.

First, download the Xplayer media player from this link.
Follow the on-screen instructions and install the software on your Linux system.
And now to the main part of downloading the subtitles!
