Subtitles not showing

Postby RomKnight » Fri Jan 23, 2009 4:03 pm

Hi,

I look for it but I haven't found anything related to this.

I discover PMS recently and tried tried 1.02.1 and now 1.03 but although It shows on PS3 "Subtitles found" truth is they won't show either on .iso's .avi's (divx), .mkv, ...

I already messed with the available subtitles options but no luck. On PS3, i tried use the subtitles menu but it says none are available...

Any thoughts on this one?

TIA,

rk

I had the same problem initially. Installing the "mplayer" package via Synaptic Package Manager helped.

I had this problem when I enabled ASS subtitles. I figured it was just another subtitle format, so it shouldn't screw up anything, but I guess it changes the way subtitles are rendered. I just disabled that and it worked. On that note, could someone explain what this actually does? The command line it uses seems weird, and I wonder if it's for a specific port/fork of mplayer.

I having the same problem, but I'm not using the GUI so I don't know what options to set in the PMS.conf file.

Can you post your working PMS.conf file so I can do a compare and possibly get subtitles working for me as well?

hi

i am also not able to make the .srt/.sub subtitles show, no matter what settings i try. in the process list, mencoder has the right parameters, but on the PS, they don't show up. i tried all possible subtitle combinations, with or without ASS, still no result :cry:

sample:

Code: Select all
log: [Thread-709] TRACE 12:18:08.999 Starting transcode/remux of aaa.mkv


process:

Code: Select all
mencoder -ss 0 -quiet /storage/sdb1/aaa.mkv -quiet -quiet -oac lavc -of mpeg -lavfopts format=asf -mpegopts format=mpeg2:muxrate=500000:vbuf_size=1194:abuf_size=64 -ovc lavc -channels 6 -lavdopts debug=0:threads=2 -lavcopts autoaspect=1:vcodec=mpeg2video:acodec=ac3:abitrate=640:threads=2:keyint=1:vqscale=1:vqmin=2 -subcp cp1250 -subfont-text-scale 3 -subfont-outline 1 -subfont-blur 1 -subpos 98 -quiet -quiet -sid 100 -quiet -quiet -ofps 24000/1001 -sub /storage/sdb1/aaa.srt -mc 0 -noskip -af lavcresample=48000 -srate 48000 -o /tmp/javaps3media/mencoder1236421089333


current settings that generate this process:

Code: Select all
thumbnails = true
mencoder_ass = false
minimized = true
network_interface =
folders = \/storage
embed_dts_in_pcm = false
mencoder_subcp = cp1250
codec_spec_script =
engines = mencoder,tsmuxer,mplayeraudio,ffmpegaudio,tsmuxeraudio,vlcvideo,mencoderwebvideo,mplayervideodump,mplayerwebaudio,vlcaudio,rawthumbs
mencoder_fontconfig = false
mencoder_ass_defaultstyle = false

if i start the movie locally on the linux box using mplayer or vlc, the srt works fine.

what else can i try ?
thanks

long time no post.

I see the subtitles now. Go to "transcoding settings" tab enable "ASS/SSA subtitles" and "fontconfig"

Problem is, they are HUGE and no scale option works :s
