    Subtitles: Baked-in? How to stop that?

    So, I find when I'm watching content with subtitles in the web app, it seems to be encoding them as part of the image, rather than text on top. Unfortunately, for the content I'm watching, none of the default subtitle styling options are very legible. My usual go-to fix for this sort of thing would be to open up stylus and restyle subtitles to have a thick black border, or straight up put the text in front of a black box like I have it doing on the android TV app. But with it baked right into the videostream, I can't add a stylesheet to fix the subtitles to make them more legible. Is there a setting for me to tell it it not to do that, and put the subtitles on top as actual text? Where would I find that setting? Thank you.
  2. Hi, So (especially) when watching on a TV box such as Android TV it's quite the unnecessary task to have to switch the subtitle track individually for each episode in a season. It would be handy and a nice quality of life update to have the same "select subtitles" box that appears for each episode but for an entire season or even a show (if subtitle track naming is consistent across the episodes allowing to make the switch ofc).
  3. If we have two (or more) files grouped for episode of tv show when we search subtitles(episode->tree dots->subtitle->search) emby search subtitles for last file. Desirable behavior is to search subtitle for selected file version in information page Server log, is looking for a version 4K.HDR.EXPLOIT but should be looking for FullHD.EVO 2021-07-12 18:30:06.870 Info App: Computed hash ccc19232911c15837a65feeea2366536 of /home/storage/remote/4K/Shows/Loki [tvdbid=362472]/Season 01/Loki.S01E05 - 4K.HDR.EXPLOIT.mkv for NapiSub
  4. Hey dear friends, How is it possible to add a new subtitles site which will be available for Hebrew subs? The site is: https://wizdom.xyz/ hope you can help me with that! Thanks in advance! Idan
  5. Hello, I have been having an issue with subtitles for certain films when streaming to an older Chromecast and am having a hard time pinning down the cause of this, so was wondering if anybody else is having this issue. While I have found various posts about this issue in the recent past, I have not found anything to explain and/or resolve the issue. Details: This occurs while streaming from Windows or Linux machine, so I do not think it is a problem that is related to the install or the OS. The subtitles do show when playing through a browser, on an Android phone, or streaming to a Roku streaming stick, so it seems to be a "Chromecast-only" issue. When streaming to the Chromecast, the subtitles will momentarily appear when the video is started, but disappear after about 0.5 seconds. This problem "seems" independent of file type/format (although I doubt this is the case). I am currently running Emby Server (Win10/Linux Mint 19.3). I think have tried almost every combination of configuration adjustments over the past two weeks in order to resolve this, but so far have had no success. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Cheers Update 1 (21.09.2020): I installed Jellyfin last night and it has no issues showing subtitles when streaming to the Chromecast, so this seems to be an Emby issue.
  6. Feature Request Permit subtitle backgrounds for better visibility. It would be good to allow subtitle backgrounds with variable opacity so that the sub text can overlay any existing text. There might be issues where the subtitle is in the same color as the background that might cause viewing issues. I understand that you can change the text color, but this is inconvenient to change the subtitle color to avoid the issue. Let's say I'm watching a video with white hardsubs, and it conflicts with my external subs. Having sub backgrounds would permit a more enjoyable viewing experience and prevent the need to change the color. Example Netflix has a subtitle appearance that permits subtitle backgrounds.
  7. Bello, I've noticed in the latest beta update that subs that used to be the perfect size and "styling" now looks smaller and different in terms of font, and the text is so small that its basically unusable, I've tested this with several shows with ASS subtitles and have compared the beta and non beta apps and there definitely is a big difference, if required I can upload some example screenshots showing the difference in font.

    Tiny Subtitles With MKV

    Hey, Thanks for your guys hard work. Emby is always a pleasure to use. I've noticed that when playing files with embedded subs, like the MKV format, the default size is tiny. Unreadable basically. When I extract the subs into an .srt file ( ffmpeg -i "%~1" "%~n1.eng.srt" ) it works fine, loading the subs as expected. Any chance Emby could work with this better automatically? Thanks
  9. I decided to go for hash matching for subtitles instead of leaving it off, but a bunch of subs are already downloaded. Is there a way to clear all non-matched subs, or refresh them all to follow what's saved for the library? Right now it seems like it will keep the non-matched subs regardless.. Feature request: Also, having a 2nd language preference for subs would be nice, I usually always use english subs, unless the thing I watch is in my native language, so I would rather then use that if available.

    problem with subtitles

    hi When I play movies using both web app(two computers) and tv app(sansung tizen client) there is no subtitles displayed. Tried to switch subs, to disable and enable again, to stop and start playback but no effect. I also have xiaomi mibox with androidtv and it works flawlessly, subs are displayed with no problem web app playing log: ffmpeg-transcode-5e9302f4-c299-47ba-b467-203e60515db3_1.txt tv playing log: ffmpeg-transcode-5ef5d764-4cca-4e5f-bc06-1130c83e67a0_1.txt servr log: embyserver.txt when I play on mibox there is no playing log and one more thing: all this happened recently, few days ago everything was ok (well, tv app had sometimes problems but web app not)
  11. Hi, I'm trying to connect to my Emby server with my Samsung UE32H5500. Tried using the DLNA function of the tv to find the server. But that doesn't work. (DLNA is enabled in the dashboard.) As in, the server doen't show up. I also tried clicking the stream icon while in the browse libary function of Emby. Thart works although no subs show. While if I stream diretly from the browser they do. Any suggestions? Jordi
  12. I noticed Emby Server is not recognizing the 'Forced' flag for internal subtitles in a MP4 container. Here is an example, you can see from Subler that Track 5 is subtitles and they are checked as 'Forced'. However in Emby Server it is showing the subtitles as "No" for Forced.

    Subtitles question

    Hello again! After my first thread and after my first experience with Emby Im using it so much! ITS WONDERFUL Now I was looking for a way to download subtitles automatically to my movies and I even found out that Emby can do this! Now is my question: How do I set this up? I have done the following: Went to subtitles (in the server manager) and filled in the details - the username and password. Also enabled save in media folder, related to subs, in the library - movies. I think this was everything I had to do? Now I tried watching a movie but unfortunately without subtitles. I tried to search something on this forum, and I saw something about subtitles on the bottom of the first page. all the subtitles should be in the Metadata folder. But it's almost empty (just 2 files) Can you guys help me again? I filled in the details 10 minutes ago, maybe it needs some time? Thanks!
  14. Hi, Version fixed the DLNA server (on Synology) not seen problem. But my first test was a video, Matroska container, with EAC3 audio, which my TV can't play. So I changed the Sony Bravia 2013 profile, deleting that codec (and adding dac,dts -- which this TV, in this country, plays fine). Success! Audio is transcoded, and it works on the TV (before it didn't, and a message about the format not supported appears). Then I tried to activate the subtitles... nothing, as if the video didn't have subtitles. But the container does have one, srt subtitle. Is this a bug? srt subtitles is included in the info tab on the profile, as supported by the device (and they work fine with many other mkv files, using a different DLNA server). Also I don't expect, or want, subtitle burning. These direct-play fine, as implied by the profile. TIA

    Roku app and Subtitles

    I noticed that when i want to watch anime that has embedded subs (mkv) that are recognized as unknown language, Roku wont allow me to use them. is this a limitation of the app or a bug? I set it to the sub but nothing appears on the screen.
  16. Hola, Hace poco instalé Emby, y no logro hacer funcionar los subtítulos. Estoy medio perdido ya que no tengo idea cual puede ser el problema. Estuve mirando los logs como para ver si allí aparecía algún error que me diera un indicio de donde empezar a mirar, pero no encuentro nada. La configuración que tengo es: Emby Server (up-to-date), corriendo en un servidor Ubuntu 17.10, que es un LXC ejecutándose en un Proxmox 4.4. Los archivos los tomo de un Open Media Vault, referenciados vía smb:// En estos Shares, los archivos mp4, mkv, avi, etc están acompañados de sus respectivos .srt También he probado hacer uso de la opción de descarga vía OpenSubtitles. En mi perfil tengo "Preffered: Spanish;Castillan", "Mode: Default", "Burn: Auto" En el server tengo "Download for: Movies / Episodes", Download Languages "English y Spanish", Los otros 3 checks, desmarcados. He probado ver en Chromecast, en Roku con la App de Emby, en Firefox en la PC (Linux - ver 57), en Chrome en la PC (Linux - Version 62.0.3202.94). En ningún caso se logran ver los subtitulos. Lo que he notado es que siempre se activa el "transconding". Alguna idea qué me puede faltar configurar? Algún paquete que falte instalar en el server? Gracias
  17. I realise this isn't really an Emby thing, but while I've been trying to replace my DVDs with Blurays, there's still quite a few to go, and some will no doubt be staying put. So, in the meantime and in order to save a bit of space, does anyone know of a program that'll remove surplus audio and video tracks from something like this... ...without actually going to the trouble of compressing / handbraking the file ? Thanks.
  18. Hello, When I am using EMBY through PS4 web browser and for some reason the subtitles aren't displaying at all. In the settings I have them always on/forced and enabled by default. I am using Greek subs with no other issue when I am watching through the Samsung TV app or through my iPhone (Same user profile of course) but through PS4, subtitles do not show at all. It's a shame as I really love the PS4 interface. Something to be fixed possibly on another release? Thanks in advance, George
  19. I have some .mkv files with subtitles (each .srt file has the same name as its corresponding .mkv file). So basically I am streaming those files to Kodi using the Emby kodi addon. My subtitles are Greek. The playback is smooth and the subs are there but they are gibberish, which means there is something wrong with the encoding. I have set the Subtitle encoding settings on Kodi for Greek-Windows or Greek-ISO but nothing happened. What can I do so the subtitle are shown normally? Edit: This is my .srt file, in case you wanna test it.

    Problem med åäö

    Hej, Jag har problem med åäö på textningen i Emby det som händer är att det blir ett tecken som ser ut som en diamant med ett frågetecken istället för åäö är det något jag kan göra för att det ska fungera eller är det något som måste korrigeras i emby?
  21. Hello I've used the new Emby Theater for a while now and it runs very stable and keeps improving constantly. Thanks for the auto logout btw! Yesterday however I noticed two errors while catching up with Game of Thrones (yes I know, I'm a few seasons behind but now I can binge watch them;)). The first one was really a minor one, the episode played fine but the English subs were loaded instead of the Dutch ones that I've set as default in the preferences. This works correctly with files with external subs, but this one only had internal subs so maybe that's the cause? The second one was when I tried to watch another episode: the loading circle just kept spinning and the episode didn't start playing. I tried a few times but the file didn't start. This morning I checked the logs and noticed that the InternalDirectShowPlayer throws a NullReferenceException on starting the episode. 2016-06-21 23:02:59.7979 Error InternalDirectShowPlayer: InvokeOnPlayerThread Object reference not set to an instance of an object. System.NullReferenceException at System.Windows.Forms.Control.MarshaledInvoke(Control caller, Delegate method, Object[] args, Boolean synchronous) at System.Windows.Forms.Control.Invoke(Delegate method, Object[] args) at System.Windows.Forms.Control.Invoke(Delegate method) at Emby.Theater.DirectShow.InternalDirectShowPlayer.InvokeOnPlayerThread(Action action, Boolean throwOnError) 2016-06-21 23:02:59.7979 Error InternalDirectShowPlayer: Error beginning playback Object reference not set to an instance of an object. System.NullReferenceException at Emby.Theater.DirectShow.InternalDirectShowPlayer.InvokeOnPlayerThread(Action action, Boolean throwOnError) at Emby.Theater.DirectShow.InternalDirectShowPlayer.PlayTrack(String path, Int64 startPositionTicks, Boolean isVideo, BaseItemDto item, MediaSourceInfo mediaSource, String forcedVideoRenderer) at Emby.Theater.DirectShow.InternalDirectShowPlayer.Play(String path, Int64 startPositionTicks, Boolean isVideo, BaseItemDto item, MediaSourceInfo mediaSource, String forcedVideoRenderer) I also noticed the following line in the log: 2016-06-21 23:04:28.4639 Info InternalDirectShowPlayer: Current HWA Mode: None Desired Mode: DXVA2CopyBack Does this mean that no hardware acceleration is used? I've attached the full log with the complete error and will check my player settings tonight but I think they were set to use MADVR. Anyone has any ideas on how to solve these 2 problems? Thanks! theater-63602144954.txt

    Subtitle question

    My friend is trying to watch a movie(jap language) from his house via Connect on my server and is unable get the english subs to work. Its a mkv with embedded subs.

    Please Help With Subtitles

    can someone please help me figure out why my subs wont play. I am using MB server streaming to an Xbox one. I have the server set to always play subtitles and when a movie plays that subtitles have been downloaded for I get nothing. if I click the option for the subtitle it shows the external .srt file as check but still nothing on the screen. any help would be appreciated, this has been very frustrating and is causing me not to be able to watch certain movies.
  25. So i was trying to get subtitles to work on MBC/WMC without having to use MPC and the only option seemed to be Media Control. Media Control is fine for the more experience user but is not very WAF worthy. So i decide to try and get MCERemote plus (which is the only other alternative to Media Control) and after 2 days of messy around i finally got it to work properly. So i decided to share my setup so that others may benefit. This has only been tested with Embedded subs only but MceRemote simply turns on or off the subtitle section of FFDshow. So if FFDshow properly enables the external sub, there is no reason why MCE remote wouldnt work. What i installed: Lav x64 (audio/video/splitter) - Latest Build FFDshow x64(Video/DXVA) MCERemote Plus Win7DSFilterTeaker 5.9 Install: Install Lav (you can install X86 and x64...doesnt really matter) Install FFDshow x64 (only video decoder is needed), for the rest of the menus, I left default for the video codec choice (do not enable Subtitles) and disabled the audio mixer Extract MCERemote where ever you want. if you have UAC enabled (set the exe to always Run as Admin) Configure: Win7DSFilterTeaker 5.9: use it to properly assigned x64 codec to FFDshow and Lav for audio (Follow the Lav guide on the Forum) Open Lav Audio and set it up for your system needs (ie: enable AC3 DTS whatever you need) Open open FFDshow and make sure you follow the configuration shown in the jpg that is in the MCERemote Plus folder Open Lav Splitter.Now if your using this for manly anime as i am, you can simply set your Lav Splitter config like my screenshot and if the video files was properly encoded, it should work without a hich. You can view this page to get a explanation on the Splitter if your not familar with it. Now start MCERemote and configure your shortcut keys to do the switching and make sure FFDshow is selected and DirectVobsub is unselected and press OK Thats It! Now start up MBC and start a anime or any video containing subs. Press on your designated Toggle sub key and it should turn on/off the sub. If it does not, press the button once, then right-click on the FFDshow icon and make sure there is a check mark next to Subtitle (this is what the toggle function does in MCERemote config). If that works but still no sub, right-click the FFDshow icon again and this time under subtitle stream, make sure its has a check next to the subtitle and not "No Subtitle". If it was set to "No Subtitle" then Lav Splitter probably wasnt able to set the proper sub which could be be cause the 3 letter code is wrong. The way it suppose to work: FFDshow Subtitle is not checked by default Subtitle must Not be on "No Subtitle " or Toggle will do nothing Audio switching shouldnt be necessary if Lav Splitter is configured properly and Video files are properly encoded with Subs Things i have noticed with MCERemote: Once i switch audio using the shortcut key, i cant seem to switch back. Any feedback would be appreciated. Its not such a big deal because since Lav splitter switches the video to the proper audio on startup but the switch button seems to still not work..as if its a the end of a list and cant go back to the first entry. Cycle Sub streams doesnt seems to work.. probably the same reason as the Cycle Audio stream. Shorcut keys must be a keyboard key and not MCE_... becuase WMC doesnt seem to register it.
