.SRT subtitles work fine most of the time (although they still don't respect the system subtitle settings) but they become unusably large when there are formatting tags, like <i> for italics. For example, here are some subtitles from season 4 episode 1 of Paw Patrol:

209
00:10:10,043 --> 00:10:12,010
    (Kitty and sheep yelping)

210
00:10:12,012 --> 00:10:14,145
 <i> Marshall, Rubble, Rocky, Zuma</i>!

And here's how line 210 looks on screen:

The exclamation point at the end, outside the <i> tags, is the normal text size.

 

If a fix for this is possible that would be awesome. Thanks!

Enhanced subtitle settings for the Emby Apple TV app, is a long outstanding issue :rolleyes:

And nothing has been done so far to make it better....

Hi.  Have you changed any font or text size settings on the Apple TV itself?

We'll also  have an update to our mpv video player in the next update to the app, so that may impact this. Thanks.

No changes to font or text settings, either system-wide or in the Emby app.

If you want to try the beta version of the app, in the coming days we'll have an updated video player we'll see if that improves this at all. Thanks.

How can I get the beta version? I only see "Emby for TV" in the app store, and I don't see any setting for that in the app itself. Sorry to be dense.
