Switching subtitles causes screen to go black

i’m having an issue where switching to a subtitle track at the beginning of playback will cause the screen to go black. i can still see the audio and subtitle track box in the top left and the audio is still playing but the screen is blank. after a few minutes the issue resolves and switching between subtitle tracks causes no issues. the files are all MKV and i’m playing multiple different movies (all of which worked fine previously). has anyone experienced this issue?

Yeah, it’s a known bug.
