Re: .mkv external subtitle file problem

Re: .mkv external subtitle file problem

you could use mkvtoolnix (mmg) to mux the subs you want / remove the subs you dont want and create a new mkv.

takes only a few mins...

Actually it does. As I've just verified

 

movie.mkv <- idx/subs 1-4

movie.srt    <- srt sub 1

 

allows to select between 5 subtitle streams all of which are displayed.

Re: .mkv external subtitle file problem

Please let us know how you are accessing the MKV:

 

Media Server or  Network share?  

NAS, directly attached (usb) or PC/Mac?

 

Which firmware are you using?

Re: .mkv external subtitle file problem

Unfortunately i can't see the external subtitles...

 

I'm accessing the MKV file with directly attached USB hard drive

My external subtitle name is same as MKV files.

mkvtoolnix can help but i have more then 100 movie with same problem. I don't want to do the same proses to my all files.

Re: .mkv external subtitle file problem

If you have firmware 1.03.01 than you don't have a WDTV Live. You have a WDTV HD Media player.

 

You should post here:

Re: .mkv external subtitle file problem

I have the same problem here.

I have WDTV Live and it has automaticaly downloaded the newest firmware itself.

 

So, how can I load external subtitle if a MKV file already has muxed/built in subtitles.

I have tryed with the same name SRT:

Example:

Underworld.Rise.Of.The.Lycans.2008.BluRay.1080p.DTS.x264.dxva-EuReKA.mkv

Underworld.Rise.Of.The.Lycans.2008.BluRay.1080p.DTS.x264.dxva-EuReKA.srt

It does not work. How so?
