The issue is that subrip subtitles are not showing up at all in the webapp. I've tried different media. The subtitles are fine in kodi. The issue occurs on Firefox, Chrome and Edge. I've tested version 4.1.0.26 and 4.2.0.1. I provide the transcoding log. The subtitles are transcoded to webvtt.

I just wanted to add that PGS subtitles work fine. I guess they are getting burned in.

 

I also went back to 4.0.1.0 and the subrip subtitles are working with that version. So it must be caused be some change between 4.0.1.0 and 4.1.0.26.

 

I'm using docker by the way.

Hi, yes we have a couple sample files that the newer ffmpeg is having some trouble with, and we are looking into it. It's not happening with all files though. Thanks.

Are there any plans when this issue will be fixed? I hope it would be fixed with 4.1.1.0 but it wasn't. This issue basically makes it impossible to watch something like Game of Thrones where they speak different languages and you basically need subtitles...  Should be high priority imho...

The issue seems to be fixed with version 4.2.0.5

Interesting, I actually hadn't even had a chance to look at it yet. Perhaps the difference was just the newer ffmpeg build.

hi 

 

on my side, SUBRIP are on top of the video in direct stream (1080 / 5 to 60 Mbps) , if I force transcode by reducing to 1080 4 Mbps, there is no subtitles.

 

only SUBRIP are on top, SRT are on the bottom

without transcoding on iOS, SUBRIP are shown on the bottom

The issue is that we extract the embedded subtitles on the fly and send them to the video player as plain text, however in your environment this process is taking a long time, and it's causing you to think the subtitles aren't working.

 

What you can do is go to server transcoding settings and uncheck the option to allow subtitle extraction on the fly. This will caused them to be burned in with server transcoding instead - of course, you might not like that either due to the amount of resources it will consume on your server in order to do that.

 

That's why for the best experience possible, external subtitles are always the most efficient choice. Please let us know if this helps. Thanks.

Hi,

I have the same problem with EmbyServer 4.1.1.0 and 4.2.0.15. The subtitles won't display on web app with allow subtitle extraction on the fly checked and not checked.

 

Subtitles are correctly displayed on Emby Theater for Windows

 

Here is some logs and a sample file

Why do you feel they're not displaying? Have you made sure to enable them in the video player? Have you checked the contents of the subtitles?

I have the same problem on 4.1.1.0 (I wasn't able to put 4.1.0.14 on my docker)

At first I believed it was caused by HEVC but plex manage the file correctly :

Emby : https://i.imgur.com/baMozWf.png

 

Also Emby displays the episode way darker than plex do

 

@@Luke Should I create a new topic?

 

Thanks

@@kesm, I'm using docker as you so why can't you write 4.1.0.14 as version?

 

and yes, this version, precisely, is important.

V4.1.1.0 is already too late about what I suggest to you :/

Ok and to finish, are we agree if you update to 4.1.0.15, subtitles are not working anymore?

 

Thank you. If its the case, it's the same issue as me. Or at least, it's a similar problem :)

 

I played with Docker to switch between these two versions and everytime 4.1.0.14 was working but not 4.1.0.15 and newer.

 

After that, I didn't see it was just subrip subtitles which had this issue.

 

NB: I never seen the dark image on my side so it's an other problem maybe already fixed? Anyway, it was just to try the test of subtitles :)
