Hi,

 

I've encountered some problems while downloading media to watch offline (with Emby from the Windows Store, as the regular desktop version doesn't have this feature):

 

1. External subtitles don't download, which makes this feature for me useless:

  • 1.1: I have set my preferred subtitle language in the settings, and always play subtitles.

 

2. No feedback about current downloads:

  • 2.1: When clicking download, you have to dig in the settings to view the downloaded items. Maybe display them, and the download progress, under "My Downloads" on the home screen? If not, maybe a faster way to see all downloaded / downloading files using a cog wheel next to "My Downloads", like in the android app.
  • 2.2: The download status goes from "transferring 0%" to "Downloaded". There is no download progress in percentage.

 

3. The "My Downloads" item on the start screen doesn't refresh when media is downloaded / deleted:

  • Downloaded files show up after a restart of the app
  • Deleted files are gone after a restart of the app

 

Number 1 is important to me, 2 and 3 are a mere cosmetic features.

 

Thanks!

Jelle

Hi Luke,

 

When I download s01e01, I see this in the downloadfolder:

So no subtitles.

 

When playing the downloaded video in Emby, it says the subtitles are available, but they are not showing.

Things I have tried but didn't work:

  • Enabling "Allow subtitle downloading" on the Emby Server.
  • Chaning subtitles from title.language.default.srt to title.language.srt.
  • Converting media while downloading.

 

Any tips on getting this to work? I don't know what I am doing wrong.

 

 

2. No feedback about current downloads:

There is a cogwheel next to My Downloads when changing the Display Mode from Auto to Desktop in settings.
