In the Blender video sequence editor (VSE) how do you add an outline to a text strip?

There isn't a direct way of doing this. An indirect way is to add a multiplied glow effect under the text with a black color.

  1. Create a text strip, then "Add" -> "Effect Strip" -> "Glow" and move it under the strip. enter image description here
  2. In the Glow's "Strip" tab set "Threshold" to minimum, "Clamp" to maximum, "Blur distance" to your desired size, "Quality" to 1 (personal preference), "Blend" to alpha over, and "multiply" to maximum. enter image description here
  3. In the Glow's "Modifiers" tab "add strip modifier" -> "color balance" enter image description here
  4. In the color balance set "gain" to minimum enter image description here
