Updating Subtitles while playing movie?


Recommended Posts

Following issue:

Sometimes I need to try a few different subtitles until I find one where the timing is correct. In the emby webapp I always have to exit the movie to be able to download new subtitles (via "Edit subtitles"). So its actually alot of clicks if I need to try a few different ones.

So I was wondering if there is any way to change the used subtitle while the movie keeps playing?

I tried opening a second tab and editing the subtitles there (while the movie kept playing in the seond tab), but the newly downloaded subtitles don't seem to get used until I completely exit the movie and open it again.


Is there any way to achieve what I'm trying to do?

Downloading subtitles during video playback is coming to the next version of many of our apps - android, iOS, etc. iOS will actually be two updates from now as we've already submitted one to apple. Enjoy.

That's awesome, thanks!

How about the Amazon fire Tv App? When will the new version be released?

It will take a little time, but yes it will gradually get into all apps.
