I have used minidlna for a long time usually with my Samsung tv however recently I started using it with my Nexus7 tablet using MediaHouse Pro as the client. I would like to know if there's anything that I can try to do to get srt files to work in the tablet just like it works in the tv. Is this perhaps user-agent related or is it a client restriction?
I forgot to mention if it's helpful that I am running minidlna in my Linux Mint box and I am using the source rather than the package in the repositories.
Srt support is client specific.
Thanks Craig, that clears things up.
