When I play Media Files with internal subtitles in the MKV files, emby uses ffmpeg to extract the subtitle to /config/data/subtitles/ so that it can be streamed to my device.
This sometimes takes a very long time, and it seems Emby has a timeout of 5 minutes ( I wouldb't want to wait 5 minutes or even longer for a movie to start, so that is fine.
But, playing movies where the subtitle is already cached, it plays instantly.
So, i thought it coulc be nice if Subtitles could be extracted to the cache, as it is when being played for the first time, so that is just works.
I am playing to either Chromecast or Screenplay for LG if that makes a difference.
Or - I can see in the log, that wven when being slow, it is atleast 2x in the ffmpeg output - Which I assume means 2x faster than normal playback. Could the movie use what has already been created, and just stream the subtitles a litle at a time to the client?
