my Samsung D-series TV is not able to show subtitles when they are embedded in MKV files (both as text or VOBSUB tracks).
Those subs show just fine locally when using mplayer & totem (on Linux).
Is there another server where they work when embedded in you MKV files? This really should depend solely on the TV.
Ripped .mkv with MakeMKV with all languages/subtitles:
I cannot change or enable any subtitle if played over minidlna.
Can someone confirm it?
Using latest CSV of mDLNA.
I had the same problem with MakeMKV and subtitles ( I think on my sony bravia it even refused to play ...), but placing the subtitle in the same folder with the same name worked ...
I can confirm this issue for my Samsung UE40D8000 with MiniDLNA 1.0.25. An extracted .srt file works; the embedded subtitle is not seen by the TV (Including the latest firmware: 1027.1 from 2013.02.25). Audio and Video plays fine.
Cannot confirm it working on the TV using another DLNA server. Can anyone recommend one, other than miniDLNA?
