You can try out PGS subs in the latest beta version of the app (on Google platforms) 1.4.37.
@ebr I have been impressed with the support from Emby on these forums – I can post logs and samples and screenshot to the plex forum and hear nothing from anyone at plex, or nothing gets fixed: https://forums.plex....n-software-does or here https://forums.plex....bsubs-mkv-mpeg2 – so I think I going to pay respect and buy lifetime premiere.
I want to move to Emby and all Im really looking for is:
- Direct play of vobsub and pgs; which now Emby can do.
- Be able to record the DVB subtitle stream for UK TV broadcasts
- Be able to play back TV Recordings and have DVB subtitles show if they are selected (and Direct Played if possible)
- Be able to view DVB subtitles why watching live TV
Admittedly, I have no actually tested the above, but I am now certain that if I did have issues that Emby would do their best to help and resolve the issue.
For example, I have one recording that plex simply cannot playback and if it transcodes rather that direct stream then all sorts of issues happen:
A uk stream contains sources of varying framerate and sounds, and if plex has to transcode that recording it causes all sorted of trouble: for example, prior to a movie starting the previous show will be in one frame rate with 2.0 sound, but when the movie starts plex keeps sound at 2.0 and the wrong framerate.
Watching in kodi, the audio output will switch from 2.0 to 5.1 happily and with correct framerate.
Yes, I could very well just use plexkodiconnect for everything but I would rather use the plex app, so I'm going to see what emby is like on the shield and go from there.
