    External Subtitles Support?

    It's about the first time I'm using MB3 and just bought the Android app since all the apps seems amazing. But I can't get the subtitles to work. When I do an "Advanced Playback" and select the subtitle (which is detected)... I receive the transcoded video (instead of direct streaming) but the subtitles still missing. Is there something that I need to do on the server ? I've already setted my pref language for subtitles also installed LAV Filters. Lastly, the entire point for me of all this setup is to play this on my Chromecast, but seems like when select the Advanced Play option the Cast button get disabled. Any ideas if this is expected or not? Thanks, keep the good work!
  2. Hello, I would love to see an option added to select audio tracks and subtitles with the Andriod. I was shocked it was not on it by default
  3. I noticed this when I was trying to get my subtitles to only show the non-english speaking parts of the new thor movie that when I add in subtitles (whether I am using my roku to stream or the android app) it gets laggy and stutters because it is now transcoding the video and audio which I noticed on the android app. Why does it need to transcode when simply adding subtitles? It is causing my video to load incredibly slowly and sometimes it need to reload. Thanks,

    Subs in MBC

    Hi Guys, I have been reading that some people are able to get subtitles playing in MB Classic and some have not. I have not been able to get subs playing and maybe someone could be kind to point me in the right direction. I have a WHS server 2011 that holds all my media. I have both MB Classic & Server stored on my HTPC with LAV filters 0.59.1 & XY-Vs Filter. I used to run ffdshow, both uninstalled that some time ago. My desktop has MBT and Classic & same setup with lav & xy filters. For the episode I am trying this out on, I have my show, which is a .mkv file and there is also a .sub & .idx file (not sure what the idx file is). When I tried this in vlc player, the subs work, but not in MB Classic or MBT. Any suggestions? Thanks Dom
  5. I would like to know what is the proper way to label foreign/forced subtitles? In this example "Avatar" I have two english subtitles (the foreign one is for the foreign-only speaking parts in english and the full english subtitle for the entire movie). There are many movies and tv shows that I have subtitles for that use the foreign/forced subtitles but on the web client they always appear as "Unknown". I have tried embedding the subtitle using mkvmerge and labeling them foreign or forced but they appear as unknown as well. , Web Client: Foreign subtitle does appear properly labeled under details Web Client: "Foreign" external labeled subtitle appears as Unknown in selection

    Web Client and Subtitles

    I am using Chrome Version 32.0.1700.72 m The subtitles display all the time. If I click the subtitles button, it brings up the list of sub titles available (there is only one) and it has a red check beside it. How do I turn subtitle off? I have tried selecting it (thinking it would toggle off of course), but that does nothing. Anyone see the same thing or is something with my setup? Thanks.
  7. I just added a new tv show and decided to see how it was to keep the subtitles and in MB Classic, is there any way to turn them on and off? With MB Classic, they always stay on and in MBT they do not appear. I was thinking of keeping the subtitles (or CC) with all future shows and movies, but am not surer if they can't be turned off. I am using LAV filters and I noticed there is a way to disable them, but I was hoping for an option similar to WMC when a show is muted, the subtitles (or CC) appear. Thanks Dominick

    ROC Subtitle showing

    Some time ago I did a request for a recently added with subtitles but perhaps this is a better idea. When the focus is on a show we can see how many seasons and how many unwatched are avialable. Perhaps this can be folowed by how many internal or external subtitles are avialable. internal for subtitles that are embedded in the .mkv files and external subtitles like .srt files. Would be a real improvement for me and other users that need to watch with subtitles. Thanks in advance.

    Feature request subtitles

    I know this is on the roadmap, but I would realy like to see external subtitle support in MBT I have lots of movies with seperate Srt files and it would take ages to remux them inside the MKV. I'm not very savvy with coding, but if I can help to move this along, let me know.
  10. I started this in the previous forum, but I again wanted to plead for the subtitle downloader plugin for MB3. MB Classic and MB Theater would be awesome, but I figure just for MBT would suffice. After living without it for the last few months, I realized how many times I would use the MB2 plugin. I personally don't like subtitles, but the wife does so it's helpful with a few remote clicks to have the subtitle.
  11. Welcome to Media Browser Classic! For those of us left still clinging onto Windows Media Center, for whatever reason (even with the awesome standalone Media Browser Theater client available), you still want your viewing experience to be the best it can possibly be. However, despite the various reviews and opinions that external players provide a superior picture quality over the internal player for WIndows Media Center, WMC user often still prefer the "completeness" in preferring the internal player option, when it comes to Media Browser. So, with that said, I offer one of the simplest, yet most high-performing and quality-producing playback filters available to make the most of your media viewing experience - LAV Filters. LAV Filters LAV is a multi-format DirectShow media splitter and decoding suite, based loosely on the ffmpeg project. What it does is allow you to playback the majority of modern media files, without compromising quality or performance. Native Windows 7 codecs are based upon the "new" Media Foundation, which provides support for many formats, but not some of the more popular open source media containers, like Matroska (MKV), for example. Why You Need LAV Depending on the file formats you use, you may not actually need LAV. However, for those of you that do need something other than the default Media Foundation, or are looking for a better performing and less complicated codec pack, LAV can provide that to you, plus all the advanced options you could hope for - all in a single executable that will work with default settings for the average user. LAV supports hardware accelerated playback using the the most common graphics hardware from Intel, Nvidia, and AMD. LAV also has highly-efficient software playback for those of you that do not have graphics supporting DXVA2 playback. LAV is capable of providing bitstreaming of common Dolby and DTS formats, as well as the current high definition audio formats like DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD. LAV also has built-in subtitle support for specific file format configurations. The LAV Guide, Windows Media Center, and MB Classic As you may have been wondering by now, "How do sign up?", well, that's where theHTPC.net's LAV filter guide comes into play. You see, it's not a completely simple process to install LAV filters and override Window's Media Foundation preferences when using the Media Center internal player. However, do not worry, it's not a terribly bad ordeal either. By following the guide, step-by-step, I can assure you that you will have properly configured system with the most minimal risk of "codec conflict" available. This guide assumes a few things, but can be altered depending upon hardware availability. In other words, if your configuration sways from the following a little, don't worry! The Media Browser forums are a terrific place to find out how to make the guide work for you! You have a properly working Windows 7 (or Windows 8) system with no other codecs installed. You have a PC capable of hardware accelerated playback of supported format(s) (i.e. h.264). You have an audio/video receiver (AVR) that is HDMI-equipped and is capable of decoding digital audio configured for passthrough (AC-3, DTS, DTS-HD, TrueHD, etc.). You have the need for displaying external subtitle formats (.srt, for example). LAV supports embedded subtitles, but is not capable of pulling external subtitles into the playback chain. Therefore, xy-vsfilter is an optional installation for supporting this configuration (while still supporting embedded subs!). You are using the internal Windows Media Center player for playback of all media files via Media Browser Classic. If those points sound like you, or are very close, then please, continue on to... theHTPC.net's Guide to Configuring LAV Filters in Media Center, with Subtitle Support
