Srt without Transcoding

Postby bobohob » Sun Apr 20, 2014 7:33 am


Can someone help me out to display external srt without transcoding it?
My computer is not powerful enough to transcode, so I have to skip transcode and let PS3 do the job.

Thank you in advanced.

You have either transcode on the fly (which PMS does) or hardcode the subs ahead of time then stream. The PS3 does not support subtitles for streamed media.
I provide NO application support via PM or email, so please post your question to the forum per the Forum Rules.

Re: Srt without Transcoding (PS3, Showtime)

I forgot to mention using Showtime as the player. It supports subs for streamed, but with skipped transcoding the external srt is not included in the stream so Showtime cannot see it.

But I've just found the solution. I have to activate the Central Folder for subtitles in Showtime settings. The folder path to input is like:
then I copy the srt into 'mysubs' and it works fine. Thanks anyway.
