.srt subtitles won't show if .mkv file has multiple subtitle

Postby wesyr » Tue Jan 14, 2014 8:18 am


Last week I've encountered a problem with UMS and also PMS.
The problem is with mkv files with built in subtitle tracks and external .srt subtitles while playing on Showtime.

At first got to mention that i had to add
Code: Select all

to Showtime4.conf and PS3.conf, so the subtitles will be send.

When I want to play this kind of movie (example. Jobs from SPARKS and ext subtitles, or Carrie also from SPARKS), i've got information in the upper corner that there is used external srt file by MiniDLNA, but the subtitles doesn't show up, when i switch to internal subtitles, internal subs shows up.

After that i've deleted internal subs from .mkv file, and tried again to plan that movie and .srt files works without any problem.

Information what I've managed to get with collaboration of showtime devs is that Showtime in this situation gets empty link to subtitle file
Code: Select all$2$2/subtitle0000.srt

shows a blank page.

I'm not transcoding mkv files, because i don't want to and Showtime plays without any problem mkv files.
