I just got my WDTV live delivered.
I’m trying to play a movie with subtitles. The movie is in .avi format and is located on my Windows 7 (64bit) machine.
Inside of this folder is a subtitle file named “example.srt” and the movie name is “example.avi”.
I try to play the movie via media devices, and selecting the folder where it is, and then playing the movie. I select options, and subtitles… But it says there is no subtitles. I press enter many times but it doesn’t work.
I tried renaming the file to “example.avi.srt” and this does not work.
I tried renaming the movie. I go to the WDTV and the movie name appears as the old one.
All of these files mind you are in a public directory, and EVERYONE has read/write access. The workgroup name is exactly workgroup.
I tried accessing the file via network shares, but I enter my login information, case sensitive and all, but it says incorrect username/password please try again.
I also rebooted my PC, after removing password, and it still does not work.
I’ve also reset the factory defaults, again, not working.
The only reason I bought this device was so I could play movies with subtitles (XBOX doesn’t support this).
The file isn’t itself not working, as this is the case with many movies with the subtitles in the folder.
I also tried connecting an external hard drive, but it isn’t detected for some reason (hard drive enclosed in a noontec enclosure).
Any and all help/suggestions is welcome, I really am trying to get subtitles working, and I’m out of ideas.
