Subtitle italics tags on Apple TV 4


Recommended Posts


I just started using Emby with my personal home server where I already have a number of movies ripped and saved with their associated subtitle files. As I was testing to make sure everything works as expected, I ran across the following issue.


On my Apple TV 4, subtitles with italics tags are not rendered correctly. Rather, the line is literally printed as "<i>Insert some italics text here</i>", without the quotes, of course. I tested, and this is only an issue on Apple TV 4, as far as I can tell. Italics renders correctly when viewing through the web client.


Some other things you might need to know:

I'm running the newest version of Emby Server (installed 6/18/17) on my Ubuntu 17.04 server.

I'm running the newest version of the client software (also installed 6/18/18) on my Apple TV 4.

All of the subtitle files I have are SRT format.


Thanks in advance

Bah! My apologies, I never posted my server logs as requested. Do you still need them?
