subtitle limitation of Roku clients - no Asian languages


Recommended Posts


I used a Roku Premiere and some other Roku which could only do 1080p which wasn't very good.  I was using nvdia shield tv as the server with emby beta server  Just want to report the Roku Premiere handled 4K content good as long as the movie was under 12GB or so. 20GB and 25GB file size (forgot the bitrate) then it'd stutter.


Roku can't do double byte subtitle decoding which means no Japanese, Chinese, Korean etc.  That's a limitation for some.  Anyway I'm gonna stick with nvidia shield for all my clients it looks like.
