Hi there cpt_paranoia,
I gotta admit you did a great job with the whole article here, i hope WD are appreciating your effort even though as you said you are not their employee. I am kinda late (2 years) on my question, but i think if someone can help me, that’s you.
At home, i have WD TV Live, and a NAS WD MyCloud 4TB. Both of them are at their latest firmware updates.
All of the devices are connected to the same workgroup at home and a d-link gigabit switch takes care of the multiple LAN connections i have.
My main problem is with the subtitles, they are not shown with the movie.
-They are in the same folder, with the same name.
-When i use “network share” (at the beginning i had problems setting it up so that the movies will list here), the subtitles do work, but the problem with network share is when i play HD movie (720p or 1080p) it glitches and jumps. Media Stream doesnt have this issue, but the subtitles are missing.
-WD MyCloud is also directly connected to other smart tv’s around the house, 1 Philips - again no subs though media player, and 2 samsung tv (1 supports subs, and the other doesnt). So based on the experience that at least 1 tv is showing the subtitles, then i guess the problem is not with WD MyCloud?
-i got in the twonky settings as u described here, but cant find any subs settings.
-maybe try and install another media server on the NAS?
-I dont like the solution where i need to get the movie and subtitles as one, since i got lots of tv shows and movies, it would take months to do that.
I dont understant why WD TV Live is not showing the subs from the cloud NAS…since both are WD and they should be compatible.
I hope i was thorough with my explanation of the setup and what i’ve done so far. Hopefully there is a fix.
Thank you in advance
