It depends on the subtitle format. Some subtitle formats such as ass/ssa support embedding color styles.

Hi,

 

Has passed many years since we asked for subtitles color control, and you guys did a good job adding configuration to put some shadow and size, but for some cases this is not enough. Some cases we have some white text in the video and mixed with the subtitles even with the shadows doesn't helps.

 

The only way to go over this is change to other color, like yellow.

 

So what I did, I saved a subtitle with yellow color, but looks like emby replaces the yellow color from str to the user emby settings.

 

It is possible to ignore it?

I would like to use the yellow subtitles not the white :(

 

 

Thanks

Yes I know that is planned, you said this 2 or 3 years a go hehehe.

 

But there is no way to use the yellow from the subtitles instead of the emby configuration?

 

Thanks

SubRip (srt) also supports these

Only problem is the browsers don't support srt so we have to convert them to vtt.

 

Although vtt does seem to support some color styles, this information is lost when we use ffmpeg to convert from srt to vtt. Hopefully they will support that in future updates.
