Whatever I do, I can't watch films with subtitles. Subtitles never appear.

Describe what you did please, in more detail.

When you add a movie first to a library and you see it appearing after a library scan, when you manually add subtitles (=>not with Emby) after that step , you have to re-scan that library again (with refresh metadata for new and updated files) for Emby to register your manually added subtitles.

I scan the library every time. The srt filenames matches the mkv filenames. When I want to play a movie on tv, it just doesn't start. When I disable the subtitle mode to No subtitles, the movie is playing flawlessly just without the subtitle.

I'm using freenas and Emby server 4.0.2.0
The srt and the mkv file are in the same library.

Again, more info please, like which TV platform your run the Emby app on.

 

What does the Emby server dashboard display in "Active devices" for your TV, when trying to play that movie with subtitles ?

And does that same movie play in the Emby Web app with subtitles on ?

Tv: Sony BRAVIA KDL-40HX750

I'm streaming movies using DLNA. Emby doesn't even see my television when the subtitles should be shown.

In the Emby Web app subtitles are on and everything is fine.

 

I guess my tv is too old for Emby :/

DLNA questions should go here:

Or wait for @ Luke to chime in, because I don't use DLNA streaming.
