Same for me with Samsung 55D8000, PS3MS 1.50.1 and conf file 1.4.4 : no subtitles !!!
Is it possible to edit this configuration file ?

Thanks for your help,

You can copy some other conf file (see viewtopic.php?f=15&t=8889&start=350#p62883), but then you will not be able to move FF and RF during the movie playing.

They're working perfectly fine on a Samsung LA32D550 on PMS 1.50.1 with the standard configuration.

The only entry to edit for native subs is in the SamsungAllShare.conf file:
Code: Select all
# SubtitleHttpHeader: Some devices recognize a custom HTTP header for
# retrieving the contents of a subtitles file. Set this option to the name of
# that custom header and PMS will send the URL for the subtitles file in that
# header (e.g. Samsung devices recognize the "CaptionInfo.sec" header).
# Default value is "", which means PMS will not send such header information.

Perhaps D8000 models use a different SubtitleHttpHeader? Anyways, this won't be easy to fix unless somebody is willing to gather debug information. I suppose the 1st step is to take a WireShark capture on PMS and another with Samsungs streaming software then post them here. See the original post for an example of what the capture should look like.

Some more questions:
[*]Does the TV show as Samsung AllShare under the Status tab?
[*]Does the file show as "MovieName{ExternalSubtitles}" or is the {ExternalSubtitles} part missing?
[*]Are you using .SRT subs only? Does the video contain any embedded subs?

You need to remove any subs from inside the mkv to get the external ones working :/ not sure if this is a samsung or ps3ms issue. I'm using the config I posted here viewtopic.php?f=15&t=3811&start=40#p63835 with 55d8005

EDIT: nvm, I'm not using the official code but the mod I posted earlier. So my comment doesn't really help :P With the official code the posted conf should work if you just add the said prop "SubtitleHttpHeader=CaptionInfo.sec". I'll try to find time to check it out in near future.

EDIT 2: didn't work for me with 1.50.1, but with git checkout and built the 1.50.2-snapshot -> worked straight away/out of the box without even modifying the renderer conf

EDIT 3: 1.50.2 renderer conf for allshare has SeekByTime=false, you can set it to true
