Subtitles interface not consistent

since I have been using Emby server on my Raspberry Pi and the Android TV client on the nVidea Shield, I don't want anything else. The only negative I can think of is the use of the subtitle interface. As can be seen in the screenshots, I cannot select subtitles when I come from the TVshows overview, but I can when I target an episode. It would be nice if I can always select the subtitels for the upcoming episode... or when pausing an episode, to turn on the subtitles there instead of going back to the main screen first.

Of course you cannot (in any client app) as subs can differ per episode - and some episodes don't even have to have it - how would you preselect that on Series level?

There are various subtitle modes (Forced, Default, Smart, Always show) for each user in settings for exactly that purpose, so desired subs can be automatically pre-selected.

Sure you can do that, bring up OSD while paused or playback (press Down on remote), select "CC" icon.

Thank you very much. The 'push down' while playing is new to me.. works perfectly.

You can also set a preference in the player settings to behave the same for most files where subtitles are present.

So if your subtitle language preference is Dutch and you set subtitles to Smart, it should automatically load Dutch subtitles with English audio tracks.

I'm a bit hard of hearing so I always have subtitles showing, and I moved to Emby because it handles subtitles far better than Plex can with some 1080p and 4K media.
