I am just reporting a strage "feature" with minidlna 1.0.21 (on Lubuntu 12.04) and a Samsung Home Cinema HT-E4500
If minidlna is started as a service (from script /etc/init.d/minidlna): subtitles are not recognised.
But if minidlna is started from the command line as a program (minidlna from /usr/bin) subtitles are recognised bu the HC … very disturbing ! ! !
It might have been fixed in the latest version (I have seen work has been done on subtiles for Samsung devices).
Thanks for this great software.
carry on the good work,
