Re: WD TV LIVE persistent subtitle issues

You bet, this guy rocks. I'd already changed my initial listing with his findings on the dropouts bug.

Re: WD TV LIVE persistent subtitle issues

I sorted out the license issues and made the modified version of BDSup2Sub available on my blog.

Re: WD TV LIVE persistent subtitle issues

Cool workaround and it works too. I hope your blog post is not implying I was whining on the forums, though :smileywink:

No not at all. This thread was a very good initiative and saved me a lot of time. I slightly rephrased that sentence to remove the ambiguity.

What I meant was that others complain enough so that WD can be aware of the issues. If I also start repeating what has already been said that won't improve the situation. However with the workarounds I found I am happily streaming my mkv files with internal vobsub via dlna so this has improved the situation, at least for me.

Re: WD TV LIVE persistent subtitle issues

You sure did improve the situation. I've forwarded your findings to WD and hopefully they'll find a way to fix this by firmware update. Haven't heard from pixelpower so I don't know how things are looking on the **bleep** front. I just don't watch anime.

Looks helpful, but how exactly do I run this? I downloaded it and have no idea what to do.

Re: WD TV LIVE persistent subtitle issues

It's a JAR file (a Java ARchive.)

 

As long as you have the Java Runtime installed on your PC, all you need to do is double-click the JAR file and the program will launch.

Re: WD TV LIVE persistent subtitle issues

I finally got it to work, but it seems it doesn't support A.S.S. subtitles which most of my video files have.

Re: WD TV LIVE persistent subtitle issues

The workaround I added is for the binary subtitle format (sub/idx or sup). SSA is text-based therefore you don't need the workaround my bdsup2sub version provides.

In order to edit text-based subtitles you're better off with a tool like Jubler which is for text-based subtitles. bdsup2sub is for editing the binary streams from dvd or blu-ray disks and convert between those.

Re: WD TV LIVE persistent subtitle issues

Oh I see. Well the biggest issue I have is with the dropouts. All the other problems I can ignore, but when two people are talking at the same time and one of the text streams gets cut off it's kind of hard to ignore it. I hope someone eventaully can fix this, or find a workaround since if it does get fixed I think I'll go back to watching MKVs on my WD media player again. I just got sick of it after a while and started watching all my MKVs on my PC. There are just way too many problems with the subtitles on the WD media players which is a real shame since most of the stuff I watch is subbed anime.
