Internal or External subtitles?


Recommended Posts

I've seen some other topics regarding this matter, but nothing conclusive.


I'd like to embed all external .srt files inside their respective .mkv media containers.


Is that too demanding for the server? Does it use transcoding every time for the whole video?


If Emby only does extract a temporary srt to stream to the client (without transcoding), it would be better, even if take 1 or 2 more seconds to load.

External is more efficient but internal provides more control. I find I can adjust the timing easier on internally stored subtitles and don't have to worry from device to device.
