Subtitles out of sync


Recommended Posts


Hi guys,

Loving the work you’ve done.

Is there any update on the discussion around the subtitle delay setting?

My subs are fine, they play correctly in VLC locally.

But when I cast to my tv, all subs play ahead of audio by 4 or 5 seconds.

If anyone has any input that’d be appreciated too.

But yeah keen to hear what’s happening with the prospect of subtitle delay settings.

I have reported that recently.  It happens when transcoding.  I found I could fix it by going to the transcoding settings in the dashboard and clearing the checkbox at the bottom for "Allow subtitle extraction on the fly" which I previously had set (I had to play something different to test it, because the incorrect data seemed to be cached for a while).

For me this only became a problem in a recent beta.  It would be useful to know what version of the server you are using, and indeed whether what I've done fixes it for you as well.

That would be great, thanks !

So I've added new media to the library with accompanying subs.

All play in sync.

It seems to be podnapsi subs that play out of sync.

Also I dont know why but opensubs isnt connecting.

I've created an account and associated it in the server settings.

I forget what i was watching the other night, all subs were playing 5 seconds ahead of audio.

I just played a few seconds to get you a log.

These subs are playing 5 seconds behind audio.

podnapsi doesn't have a hash matching feature like opensubtitles, so the fact that they're out of sync is not a huge surprise.

Ok no worries.

Any ideas why open subs isn't connecting?

You're getting SSL Cert errors for opensubtitles, Addic7ed

The log is also showing thesubdb being fed hash codes like this http://api.thesubdb.com/?action=search&hash=CE6FC85DD06A3A5941734B0B223FD624 which return an error.

Please check your system date and time to make sure they are accurate.
